NBA Championship Odds: Warriors Given a 80% Chance to Win NBA Finals After Game 5 Win

The Golden State Warriors won a pivotal Game 5, at home, against the Boston Celtics. The Game 5 win gave the Warriors a 3-2 lead over the Celtics heading into Game 6.

The Celtics will be home for Game 6 but the Warriors are still heavy favorites to win the NBA title knowing that the Warriors will be heading back to Golden State for a Game 7, if necessary.

The NBA Finals has flip-flopped over the last two games. The Celtics were up 2-1 in the series but ultimately lost the last two games and now have given the Warriors a chance to seal the deal and steal Game 6, on the road, to win the NBA Championship.

Should you bet on the Warriors to win the NBA Finals? Let's look at the Golden State Warriors NBA Championship odds.

Golden State Warriors NBA Championship Odds

The Golden State Warriors NBA Championship odds are -400 to win the NBA Championship, however, are +140 in Game 6. The Warriors are expected to win at least one of the remaining two games. If they don't steal Game 6, on the road, Golden State will have a chance to win the NBA Finals on their home floor in Game 7. But a -400 price seems steep for a Warriors team that is playing on the road in Game 6. If the Warriors don't win Game 6, they'll be playing in a do-or-die game with implied probability likely sitting around 55%-60% for the Warriors to win.

Bet $5, Win $150 Guaranteed on the NBA Finals

If you're interested in betting the Warriors, you're better off testing your luck on the Warriors moneyline at +140 in Game 6. A $100 wager at +140 is going to make a whole lot more than a $100 wager on -400. If you put $100 on a -400, you're only going to make $140 in return. If you place $100 on the Warriors in Game 6 on the moneyline at +140, you're going to return $240. Even if you lose in Game 6, you can wager on the Warriors at a much smaller price in Game 7 on the moneyline if you're confident in the Warriors and their ability at winning the Championship. Therefore, I would bet on the Warriors +140 moneyline over taking a -400 shot on the series win if you're looking to bring in more money. You can make sure to wager enough money on Game 7 to make your money back and then some at lighter odds than -400 in Game 7.
