It’s down to two teams. The Golden State Warriors will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2015 NBA Finals, which kicks off on June 4.
Although James is going to his fifth straight Finals appearance, it’s Golden State who are the favorites to win.
According to ESPN, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook have the Warriors at 5-12 odds to win it all, with the Cavaliers getting 2-1 odds.
“We made the Warriors a six-point favorite in Game 1, then we took the next six games and played it out,” Jeff Sherman, head NBA oddsmaker for the SuperBook, tells the network. “We take who would be the favorite in each game, by how many points and what the money line would be. We then put individual prices in and it calculates what the series price should be.”
The Cavs were longshots, before LeBron James agreed to join the team last summer.
“We had them at 60-1, but as soon as the rumors started, we dropped it down to 20-1, and then when LeBron announced he was coming back, it was down to 5-2,” Sherman said.
