2017 NBA Finals: Warriors vs. Cavs

The 2017 NBA Finals will be another rematch of the 2015 and 2016 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. A Warriors/Cavs NBA Finals matchup was available at +145 in the preseason, and once the season started it became more likely. Both teams were favored to win the East and West, but oddsmakers have given the edge to Golden State throughout the year.
