Golden State Warriors new NBA title favorite
By Bob Garcia
The Golden State Warriors, the NBA’s most dominant team of the last decade, are the new favorite to win the title at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook.
The Warriors made five-straight NBA Finals appearances from 2015-2019, winning the title three times. The team this year is a good mix of the old veterans (Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green) and the new guard led by Jordan Poole.
Golden State survived against Memphis last night (101-98 as 9.5-point home favorites) to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. Memphis star guard Ja Morant (knee) missed that contest. Golden State was the +210 favorite to win the title before that game and have now dropped to +192 as you can see below.
The Warriors have also benefited from the unexpected struggles from Phoenix (+295), who dropped the last two games in Dallas to tie their series at 2-2.
Over in the Eastern Conference, the odds show that the Celtics (+363) are the clear favorite after tying up their series (2-2) last night with Milwaukee. Miami and Philly are also tied 2-2 with Game 5 in South Beach tonight.
