Golden St. advances past Dallas, listed as the favorite in NBA Finals

The Westgate SuperBook has Golden St. listed as short favorite vs. Boston in the NBA Finals. The Warriors are bigger favorites against the Heat.

Golden State (65-33 straight up, 50-44-4 against the spread) advanced to the NBA Finals for the sixth time in the last eight years thanks to last night’s 120-110 win over Dallas in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

The Warriors covered the spread for first-quarter bets (-2), first-half wagers (-3.5) and for the game (-7), while the 230 combined points jumped ‘over’ the 216-point total. Klay Thompson led six players in double figures with a game-high 32 points. He knocked down 8-of-16 attempts from 3-point range.

Andrew Wiggins (18 points and 10 rebounds) and Kevon Looney (10 points and 18 boards) both posted double-doubles, while Steph Curry had 15 points, three rebounds, two steals, one blocked shot and nine assists compared to only two turnovers.

Steve Kerr’s squad has a full week to prepare for Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors will host either Boston or Miami on Thursday (June 2) at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.

The Westgate SuperBook has released odds for the NBA Finals, listing Golden St. as a -130 favorite against the Celtics, who are +110 underdogs.

If Miami is able to overcome to a 3-2 deficit in the East finals, it will be a much bigger underdog against Golden St. The Warriors are -260 ‘chalk’ vs. the Heat, who are at +220 odds.

Going into tonight’s Game 6 at Boston, Miami is a +800 underdog to rally and win the next two games over the Celtics, who are -1400 favorites.
