The NBA Finals are set and shocking nobody it's going to the Warriors taking on the Cavaliers for the third year in a row. The Warriors won it in round one, but Cleveland pulled off an upset storming down from a 3-1 deficit to win the rematch. With a score to settle between the two this is the perfect matchup.
Currently, Vegas has the Warriors as the odds-on favorite. With the addition of Kevin Durant and a more impressive season up to this point it makes sense they would be the favorites, but Cleveland shouldn't be counted out entirely. Having LeBron James is the ultimate equalizer.
Golden State at a -260 favorite compared to Cleveland at +220 is a significant gap, but nowhere near as insane as the odds were for each in their conference finals. The Cavs and Warriors were so laughably favored in their previous series that it almost felt foolish to even consider an alternative.
For comparison's sake, Cleveland entered the NBA Finals last year as +180 underdogs to the Warriors -210 favorites. That makes this year's odds slightly more lopsided in Golden State's favor.
