The Golden State Warriors are having trouble with the no. 8 seed Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers have pushed the Warriors to a Game 6. Is this something we should be worried about, or is Golden State just taking some games off?
The Warriors are still the favorites to win it all heading into the second round. But there are a couple of team’s who might actually shock the world. But, the Golden State Warriors might still be the “safe” bet still but there are a couple other options as well.
Golden State remains heavy favorites to three-peat (-150) heading into Round 2. The Celtics (+1400) and Raptors (+1000) are increasingly attractive bets with the Warriors struggling. When it come to picking favorites for the NBA Championship there is online options for betting listed here, all sites are reviewed by the experts so you can have all the necessary knowledge prior to betting. If The Raptors can win the series in 7 this could boost their chances. Winning the championship still seems like a tall order, but if Houston can take down Golden State, getting Toronto at (+1000) could look like a steal.
Who else could be an option? The Milwaukee Bucks. After sweeping the Detroit Pistons everyone realized they have the bench depth, three point shooters, and well, Giannis. They’re playing another hot team in the Boston Celtics, but honestly I believe the series could go either way. I would say that Milwaukee would be a team to place a bet on, and you might be surprised by that… But I guarantee in the next update I do they’ll still be playing and will be moving up the board.
