2017 NBA Finals Odds

2017 nba finals oddsTalk about spoiling a party. Never has a team done that better than the Cavaliers last night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. Trailing 1-3 in the series, Cleveland won the title with a 93-89 Game 7 victory. In spite of yesterday’s triumph, the Cavs are not the favorite to win the 2017 championship. That distinction belongs to the Warriors, who are drawing a +200 line according to the just released 2017 NBA Finals Odds.

What gives? Fans in Cleveland might be asking that question, but they may be the only ones. After all, the Cavs are a close second at +225 odds, and most people feel the better team lost the Finals.

Golden State did defeat Cleveland 4-2 in the 2014 NBA Finals and it won an NBA record 73 regular games this season. And this year’s series turned when Draymond Green, who was Golden State’s most valuable player in the Finals, missed Game 5 due to suspension.

So that is the sentiment and it is far from a preposterous one. Of course, free agency can and will, in all probability, change this list, which features the Spurs, Thunder and Clippers at +750, +850 and +2000 odds, respectively, in spots three through five.

This year’s free agent list is loaded with big-time talent, including Kevin Durant, DeMar De Rozan, Dwyane Wade, Al Horford, Mike Conley, Ryan Anderson, Nicolas Batum and Eric Gordon. Those are just some of the unrestricted names. Among the restricted group of free agents are Bradley Beal, Harrison Barnes, Jordan Clarkson and Andre Drummond.

It’s going to be an interesting off-season.
