The 2016-17 NBA Finals hadn’t even started before sportsbooks were starting to take bets on the 2017-18 title. No surprise that the Warriors and Cavs are tops again, and here are opening and current odds:
For reference, the Warriors opened +150 last year and Cavs opened +250. By the start of the 2016-17 season, the Warriors were -125 and the Cavs +225, similar to the odds we’re seeing now for the 2017-18 season.
At 5Dimes, you can bet on a Warriors/Cavs finals matchup vs. the field:
Warriors vs. Cavaliers (+175)
Any other matchup (-225)
The TWolves have been big movers since acquiring Jimmy Butler– Minnesota has moved from 100:1 to 66:1 to win the NBA title.
The Bulls have also been big movers, but going the other way– Chicago has moved from 100:1 to 200:1 to win the NBA title.
Bettors should keep an eye on Paul George and/or Gordon Hayward to the Celtics– Boston is currently 14:1 to win the NBA title but would see their odds improve if they can acquire one or both.
We’ll continue to update the odds until the season begins and throughout the year. Will the Warriors and Cavs meet for a 4th consecutive NBA Finals? Is it worth betting on anyone else?
