Warriors Favored to Win NBA Finals Following Steph Curry's Masterclass

Steph Curry is not human. 

That’s the only assumption I can have after watching him put on a masterclass of a performance in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors, riding 43 points from Curry, beat the Celtics 107-97 to get the series tied up at 2-2. 

Now that this is a best-of-three series and the Warriors have home court advantage, they are now the favorites to win the title.

Warriors Favored Over Celtics to Win NBA Finals

WynnBET currently has the Warriors’ price to win the series at -140, with the Celtics as +115 underdogs. 

Even with Draymond Green being an offensive liability and the Celtics’ defense showing how elite it is in spurts, the Warriors are still a solid bet to win this series. 

Game 5 will be the key in this series. Neither team has lost back-to-back games this postseason season, which means the Game 5 loser will have to pull off that feat in order to win the title. I personally think Boston will be the first to crack, leaving the Warriors as the last team standing.

I’m of the belief, as according to my pre-series pick, that the Warriors will win this series in 6. If you are on my side and think the Warriors will end this in 6, then here's how to play it.

The Warriors are +275 to cover the -1.5 series handicap right now. This is one of the main ways to find value outside of a pure series win. Steph Curry’s Finals MVP odds are the same as the Warriors’ odds to win it all, as they are essentially joined at the hip. 

Boston has been fantastic in bounce back games this postseason, but they have also squandered several opportunities to impose their dominance and end series early. Golden State isn’t a team to mess around with and I think Boston will finally pay for their mistakes.
