The vig/juice was a little steep when odds opened, but those have started to tighten up since Thursday morning. Unlike this year’s NHL Playoffs, every higher seed is considerably favored. The Warriors opened as the highest at -6000 and are now at -7000 while the closest matchups are expected to be LAC/UTA and WAS/ATL.
At BetDSI, the majority of the public is on the underdog in 6 of the 7 available series prices (they don’t even list POR/GS there). The Atlanta Hawks are the only underdog getting <50% of series tickets. In addition to public wagers, there’s clearly some sharp money on the Bulls against the Celtics to bring down the series odds.
5Dimes also listed the most likely NBA Finals matchup to be Cavs/Warriors at -118 odds. This matchup was also the favorite before the season at +125 odds, so very little has changed after the 82 game regular season. Here’s a look at the most likely NBA Finals matchups at 5Dimes:
