NBA Odds: Warriors Down Cavs in Game 5, Reclaim Title

The Cleveland Cavaliers wouldn’t go down without a fight. But down they went, losing 129-120 to the Golden State Warriors Monday night in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. It was only a push for the Warriors as 9-point home favorites; however, the victory was enough to eliminate the Cavs and reclaim the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy for Oakland.

Golden State started the 2016-17 campaign as a –110 chalk to win the title after signing Kevin Durant in the offseason. Then the Dubs went into the Finals as –240 favorites against the defending champions. Durant proved his worth by scoring over 30 points in each of the five games against Cleveland, earning playoff MVP honours and cashing in as the +200 favourite before Game 1.


The Warriors finished the 2017 NBA playoffs with a sparkling record of 16-1 SU and 10-5-1 ATS. It was a very strong effort from the Cavs (13-5 SU, 9-7-2 ATS) as well, definitely a step up from their play late in the regular season. But it’s Golden State opening at –150 on the 2018 championship futures market, well ahead of Cleveland at +300. And will LeBron James still be with the Cavs next season?

NBA Odds: Warriors Win Title; Durant Named Finals MVP

 It took a game longer than they would have liked, but the Golden State Warriors are once again the NBA champions. They beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 Monday night to eliminate the Cavs (+9 away) in five games and reclaim the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.

Kevin Durant scored 39 points in Game 5 and was named Finals MVP for his efforts. Durant was +200 to win the MVP going into the series, and the Warriors were –240 to win back the title. They’ve already opened as –150 favorites for next year, ahead of the Cavs at +300.
