The NBA Finals are scheduled to begin on June 1st, and members of Intertops can already place their bet on the 2017 NBA Championship winner.
Round 2 of the NBA playoffs are currently wrapping up, and the 2017 NBA Championship betting favorites are now firmly established. Four teams will be playing for their shot at making it into the Finals. If you’re looking to bet on the 2017 NBA Championship winner, the best site for you is Intertops. Let’s look at a few of the favorites and underdogs.
Golden State Warriors: 1.40
The Golden State Warriors have managed to prove most online sportsbooks in the US correct as the NBA Championship betting favorites at the beginning of the season. There’s no denying they possess the most talented roster in the NBA, and their team-oriented mentality and big-game pressure have led them to become the top team in the league.
2017 NBA Championship betting odds
- Golden State Warriors: 1.40
- Cleveland Cavaliers: 4.00
- San Antonio Spurs: 13.00
- Houston Rockets: 17.00
- Boston Celtics: 21.00
The Warriors have been dominant in their series against the Utah Jazz thus far with three straight victories. They’re the only team that’s undefeated in the playoffs, and are expected to take on the San Antonio Spurs if they can get past the Rockets this week.
The addition of Kevin Durant this season has pushed the Warriors to even greater heights. They are the massive betting favorites to win the 2017 NBA Championship with odds of 1.40.
Cleveland Cavaliers: 4.00
The only other team that appears to be one the same level as the Warriors are the Cleveland Cavaliers. The reigning NBA Champions have also had a dominant run in the playoffs, most recently defeating the Toronto Raptors in their series 4-0.
The Cavs will be taking on either the Celtics or Wizards in round 3 of the playoffs, and are expected to get past either team and make it to the Finals. Lebron James has managed to carry the team for much of the post-season, but younger players such as Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love have also been instrumental in the team’s success.
If you want to bet on the 2017 NBA Championship winner, the Cavaliers are one of the best options. They have some fantastic odds to win money at 4.00, according to Intertops, and have already proven they can defeat the Warriors as they did last year.
Boston Celtics: 21.00
At the start of the season, not many basketball betting experts were predicting the Celtics would be just a series away from making it into the NBA Finals. They’ve long been a top team, but haven’t won a championship since 2008. Their current roster is one of the best in years however, and they’re now seen as a potential dark horse to win the NBA’s most prestigious award.
If you’re interested in making a bet on the 2017 NBA Championship and feel like going with an underdog you should at least consider betting on the Boston Celtics. They’re in the middle of a tough series with the Wizards, but are the betting favorites to advance with odds of 1.60.
There’s no denying the fact that the Celtics are a long shot. If they manage to make US gambling news by defeating the Cavaliers their odds will likely change, but at the moment their odds to win the Championship are set at 21.00.
