If the NBA Finals odds in Las Vegas are correct, this show is really as good as over. Following a 22-point rout by the Golden State Warriors in game one throughout the Cleveland Cavaliers, bettors are running from the defending champs at Nevada sportsbooks.
Kevin Durant and the Warriors took care of business on night, and the NBA Finals odds say the series is now a slam dunk for Golden State thursday.
The underdog at +200 before Thursday night’s opening matchup in the best-of-seven series that might last only four, the Westgate SuperBook had the Warriors at -240 to win the title, and the Cavs.
In the wake of the 113-91 blowout, that line has moved to Golden State (-700), Cleveland (+500).
That means a $100 wager in the Warriors returns a paltry $14.29 if the Bay Area team wins. The bet that is same the Cavs nets the bettor $500 in the event that underdogs can get their work together, stop turning over the ball, rebound, and upset the favorites.
Few think LeBron James and the Cavs can, though the champs have reason to remain optimistic, as they came right back from the 3-1 deficit this time around a year ago.
‘we realize we are capable of playing a lot better,’ James stated following the game. ‘We didn’t play as well as we know we’re capable of, so we look forward to the next one.’
The warriors are had by the SuperBook spotting the Cavs nine points on the spread for game two.
