Warriors the Clear Favorite on NBA Championship Odds
The Golden State Warriors have always been the favorite to win the NBA championship in 2010, and also as they decide to try for a record 73rd regular season win on Wednesday nothing has really changed. If anything, the Warriors (-140) have become a straight bigger favorite at the sportsbooks.
Lots of people might second-guess laying quantity like -140 – especially for the group that is in the Western Conference and can need certainly to proceed through two other teams that have won at the least 50 games – but this Warriors team is on another level. The latest piece of proof arrived in Sunday’s win when they went into San Antonio – the second-best group within the NBA – and handed them their first home lack of the summer season.
Even though the Spurs (+300) are second in line according to the odds, people believe that a loss that way is extremely damning. Exactly How are they likely to beat Golden State without home court benefit? The Spurs lost the season series 3-1.
Whether it’s not the Spurs who’ll slow them down in the Western Conference playoffs, it’ll likely need to be either the Oklahoma City Thunder (+1200) or Los Angeles Clippers (+2800). Both are talented enough to accomplish it, but neither option is that motivating.
