Oddsmakers give Warriors 90.9% chance of beating LeBron James, Cavs
Right after the Warriors took down the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference finals that took seven games to finish, oddsmakers over at Vegas Insider released the betting figures for both the Cavs and the Warriors to win it all this June.
Unsurprisingly, the star-laden Warriors are the heavy favorites to have another downtown parade, as they get odds of 1/10 (-1,000 on moneyline odds). In other words, the Warriors are given a 90.9 percent chance to take down LeBron James and company. The Cavs, on the other hand, were tagged with a price of 6/1 (+600) to reclaim the title they lost to Golden State a year ago.
Golden State has been the heavy favorite to bag a Larry O’Brien Trophy all season long. In fact, the Warriors were priced at around -187 to win over at 5Dimes prior to the 2017-18 campaign. Those odds would even shorten to -182 back in March, showing just how strong the Warriors are in the eyes of the betting public.
Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals will be held at Oracle Arena this Thursday.
