Now, let’s take a look at the most likely combinations while I offer up a few of my favorite possibilities.

In Depth Analysis On The Potential 2017 NBA Championship Finals Matchup Odds


Cavaliers vs. Warriors -110

Analysis: I know Cleveland Cavaliers (47-26 SU, 32-38-3 ATS) is struggling right now, having lost three of their last four games while going 5-5 over their last 10, but until I see it, I’ve got to believe that LeBron James and the Cavs will come out of the East to meet Golden State in the NBA Finals.Golden State (60-14 SU, 34-38-2 ATS) will be challenged in the Western Conference, most likely by San Antonio, but I’ve got a feeling the Dubs are taking their s*it seriously right now and have an increased desire to get it done for the second time in three seasons following their historic collapse in last season’s finals.

Cavaliers vs. Spurs +592

Analysis: The Spurs (57-16 SU, 38-34-1 ATS) are looking quite dangerous right about now (what’s new?) as they’ve won five straight and seven of nine heading into their big matchup against the Warriors. San Antonio has an MVP-caliber superstar in Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge is playing out of his mind after scare with a heart arrhythmia

Celtics vs. Warriors +1360

Analysis: The Boston Celtics (48-26 SU, 37-35-2 ATS) are on fire NBA betting buffs. Boston has won four straight, seven of their last eight and eight of 10 while recording wins over the Warriors and Wizards along the way. I love the fact that the Celtics aren’t ‘scared’ of James and the Cavs, but in the end, I don’t see the Celtics getting past the Cavs…at least, not this season.

Cavaliers vs. Rockets +1760

Analysis: I’d love to see James Harden and the Rockets rain down three-pointers on James and the Cavs in the NBA Finals and it could happen – if the Rockets get a favorable draw and can conjure up a date with destiny in the loaded West.

Wizards vs. Warriors +1990

Analysis: Call me crazy, but I swear, the Washington Wizards (46-28 SU, 39-34-1 ATS) have the look of a scary good team right now! John Wall and Bradley Beal are playing like the best backcourt in the league and the Wizards are getting double figure scoring from four other players. Washington has won four straight at the time of this writing while beating the Cavaliers along the way.
