Caesars Sportsbook has offered a number of ways to bet on this series. Here are some other notable options:

  • The current series line is Warriors -1.5 games, meaning if you bet that line, you'd need Golden State to win in six or fewer games. However, if you're comfortable risking a seven-game series, you can get plus-160 odds on that line. Celtics +1.5 games has minus-190 odds attached.
  • Jayson Tatum is favored to lead the series in scoring (minus-120). Draymond Green is favored to lead the series in assists (plus-130). Al Horford is favored to lead the series in rebounds (plus-130).
  • Vegas expects the series to be a long one. You can get plus-175 odds on the series lasting seven games and plus-190 odds on it lasting six. The odds start to jump at five games, which can be bet at plus-300, and a four-game sweep would payout at plus-700.

The Warriors and Celtics split the season series one game apiece. The Celtics are the only team with a winning record against the Warriors since Steve Kerr took over as head coach at 9-7, but Golden State has the home-court advantage and three extra days of rest. This series could go either way, which creates plenty of opportunity for you as a bettor to cash in.
