Warriors, Cavaliers Favored to Reach 2018 NBA Finals in Latest Postseason Odds

13 May, 2018, 01:25 | Author: Candice Daniels

He talked about Golden State having some mental confidence due to the fact that they're champions rather than mentioning additional pressure to defend their title.

Rockets big man Clint Capela took it a step further, stating that the Rockets were better than the Warriors following their win over Golden State back in late January.

Fans are told to head to Monday's game early because there will be some road closure around the Toyota Center causing heavier traffic than usual. Not only is Golden State's SRS almost half of what it was the past few seasons, this year marks the first time since 2015 it is lower than its opponent. As of this writing, we see the majors hanging the Rockets -2 in the first game of the series although it is indeed the Warriors installed as -185 favorites to advance to the NBA Finals.

According to OddsShark's Stephen Campbell, the Warriors are 2-3 favorites to win their second straight National Basketball Association title, while the Cavaliers have 6-1 odds, which are the highest among the three Eastern Conference teams still in the playoffs.

"We won two championships in three years", he said. But more than that, it's the matchup we've all been waiting for. This will definitely be a series to watch because of the strong offensive talent both teams bring to the court.

Andre Iguodala #9 of the Golden State Warriors dunks the ball against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena on January 15, 2018 in Cleveland. Any doubt that James had enough help to win the conference one more time was erased with Cleveland's dismantling of the East's No.1 seed.

As good as the Rockets have performed, the Warriors remain in a class by themselves when they're at their best. Designed specifically to beat them- after losing to them too many times- the Rockets match up all too well against Golden State.

Rockets star James Harden, who was kept quiet with a relatively modest haul of 18 points, paid tribute to Paul's performance. If Houston indulges Golden State in a pure track meet, then this one will get ugly for the Rockets.
