It’s as common as snow at the North Pole (pre global warming metaphor), but who’s arguing with yet another Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Final? Last year’s installment went just five games and there’s a chance this series won’t go long either.

The latest wagering odds at bet365 as of May 29 listed Cleveland the unlikely winners of the series at 7/1 with the Warriors 1/11. Home court advantage is one of the minor reasons, but the oddsmakers don’t see things going the distance. Golden State is 4/1 to win it in seven games and Cleveland 25/1 to do the same.
The first game may set the tone for the series and Golden State is a 12-point favorite — and 10/11 to win outright with Cleveland at +12 at the same odds. If you’re looking at the bet365 money line for the opening contest, Cleveland’s 25/4 to pull off an upset with Golden State at 2/19. The over/under is listed at 214.5 points at 10/11. Of course, if you don’t agree with those, you can always check out the alternative points spread and over/under options.
There are always other markets at bet365, such as the winning margin, team-with-highest-scoring-quarter, odd/even score, the finals MVP, double result, race-to-20-points and winning margin-3, 7, and 12-way options.
