Sportsbook Select’s Top Bets:
GAME 1 BET: Warriors to win game 1 @ +102
SERIES BET: Warriors to win the Series 4-1 @ +350
Will the Warriors coast to their third straight championship and fourth in five years? Will Kawhi take over and lift the Raptors to the franchise’s first title? And which star will take home Finals MVP honors?
Heading into Game 1 at Scotiabank Arena on Thursday (9 p.m. ET, ABC) we give you the low down on the best bets for the series and the best promotions to utilize.
The Raptors are a slight favorite at home in Game 1 which is interesting as the Warriors haven’t lost a Game 1 in the NBA finals in this dynasty. I am happy to bet the Warriors to win game 1 @ +102. Check out Pointsbet’s New Customer offer which allows a risk free bet of up to $500 on this bet!
As for the series I am pretty bullish on the three peat and I think the Warriors will do it in 5 games so I am taking the +350 on 4-1. If you like the Raptors and believe KD maybe gone in time for the Raptors to win, it may be worth taking the +1200 on a 4-2 Raptors win or the +1300 on a 4-1 win!
You can’t feed your family with value but I do see amazing value in Klay Thompson winning the series MVP at +1600. Curry paying -154 is pretty well found in the market and Kawhi being +245 assumes the Raptors win which is paying +230 anyway.
Kyle Lowry to have the most assists is my best bet of the NBA finals paying +400. Green is favorite in this market despite having 110 less assists than Lowry this season from only 1 less game. +400 is available via FanDuel and Pointsbet USA
