Only four teams remain in the hunt, and the Bucks and Warriors are your best bet to win it all… followed by the Raptors. OK, you’ve had close to 48 hours to recover from Kawhi Leonard’s miracle bounce that finally set the stage for the NBA Conference Finals. Are you good? Calm, collected, neurons firing in all the right directions again? Good, especially if you’ve got a gambler’s mind, because you’ve only got a few hours to place your bets before the Western Finals begin!
Here are your updated NBA title odds for each of the conference finalists:
Golden State Warriors: -165
Milwaukee Bucks: +230
Toronto Raptors: +750
Portland Trail Blazers: +1700
Basically, it’s still “Warriors-versus-the-field” here, as the Vegas oddsmakers have Golden State as the overwhelming favourite. The Bucks being second-favourite is right where they were at the start of the postseason too, so nothing has changed there either — and frankly, that +230 isn’t a bad bet, if my limited sports bettor knowledge (i.e., never having bet on sports once in my entire life) tells me anything.
Should You Bet on the Raptors?
