NBA Finals: Series Price

After a month and a half of postseason action, we’ve finally arrived at the NBA Finals. Our series price page will keep a running update on how sportsbooks think the Finals will end up.

Series Price as of June 7

(1) Golden State Warriors vs (2) Cleveland Cavaliers

Warriors lead series 2-0

Two games into the Finals, it’s the same old story we saw a year ago. With the Warriors blowing out the Cavs at home, will the wine and gold be able to accomplish the unbelievable feat they pulled off in 2016? With Kevin Durant in the fold instead of Harrison Barnes, it’s hard to imagine it happening.

Odds as of June 7 at Bovada

  • Warriors -1100
  • Cavaliers +650

Series Price as of June 2

(1) Golden State Warriors vs (2) Cleveland Cavaliers

Warriors lead series 1-0

Well, that wasn’t even close. The buildup toward Game 1 of the NBA Finals featured a ridiculous amount of hype but the game itself had as much excitement as a LaVar Ball highlight tape. If you think the Cavs can come back and win this thing, the +350 price looks appetizing.

Odds as of June 2 at Bovada

  • Warriors -500
  • Cavaliers +350

Series Price as of June 1

(1) Golden State Warriors vs (2) Cleveland Cavaliers

Series is tied 0-0

Here we go again. In the matchup we’ve seemingly been waiting for all year long, the Warriors and Cavs will collide in the NBA Finals for the third year in a row. Unsurprisingly, the Cavaliers have opened as underdogs vs Stephen Curry and company. In the famous words of Terrell Owens: get your popcorn ready.

Odds as of June 1 at Bovada

  • Warriors -240
  • Cavaliers +200

Series Price as of May 26

(1) Boston Celtics vs (2) Cleveland Cavaliers

Cavaliers lead series 2-1

Despite shocking the world as 17-point underdogs without Isaiah Thomas in Game 3, the Celtics are still huge underdogs to win the series and advance to the NBA Finals. Such is life when LeBron James is in your conference.

Odds as of May 23 at Bovada

  • Cavaliers -10000

Series Prices as of May 19

(1) Boston Celtics vs (2) Cleveland Cavaliers

Cavaliers lead series 1-0

It turns out that rest to LeBron James and company wasn’t a bad thing after all. The more you know. Bron Bron and the Cavs absolutely steamrolled the Celtics in Game 1 in Beantown, and Brad Stevens now has the unenviable task of figuring out a way to stop King James. Good luck with that.

Odds as of May 19 at Bovada

  • Cavaliers -2500
  • Celtics +1200
(1) Golden State Warriors vs (2) San Antonio Spurs

Warriors lead series 2-0

Remember when the Spurs were supposed to be the Warriors’ biggest challenge en route to the NBA Finals? Yeah ... about that. The injury to Kawhi Leonard has equated to doom and gloom in San Antonio, and the Spurs will have to pull off the herculean task of beating the Warriors despite being down two games to none.

(1) Boston Celtics vs (2) Cleveland Cavaliers

Series tied 0-0

The Celtics were forced to endure a grueling seven-game series with the Washington Wizards but came out on the right end of things at home, while the Cavaliers have been off for seemingly forever after promptly sweeping the Toronto Raptors. Boston will be Cleveland’s first real test of the postseason, so it’s going to be interesting to see how Bron Bron and company react to the extended time off.

Odds as of May 17 at Bovada

  • Cavaliers -700

Series Prices as of May 16

(1) Golden State Warriors vs (2) San Antonio Spurs

Warriors lead series 1-0

The Spurs were running away with Game 1 before Kawhi Leonard had to exit the game with an injury, and the Warriors used a ridiculous run without him on the floor to escape with a two-point victory. With the Spurs down 1-0, sportsbooks are clearly expecting the Warriors to head back to the final — just check out that price.

(1) Boston Celtics vs (4) Washington Wizards

Celtics lead series 3-2

Home teams continue to absolutely dominate this series, as visiting squads are now 0-5 SU and ATS in the wake of Boston’s huge victory in Game 5 at home. With things heading back to D.C. for Game 6, don’t be surprised to see this series go seven games if that trend continues.

(2) San Antonio Spurs vs (3) Houston Rockets

Spurs lead series 3-2

In a series that’s been incredibly tough to predict, the Spurs shut down the Rockets at home in overtime in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead heading back to Houston. I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing goes seven, and if you’re leaning toward a Rockets comeback, the +245 price looks very appealing.

Odds as of May 11 at Bovada

  • Spurs -290
  • Rockets +245

Series Prices as of May 10

(1) Boston Celtics vs (4) Washington Wizards

Series is tied 2-2

Home-court advantage has been massive in this series, as home teams have won each of the first four contests. Washington completely dominated Boston and continued its dominance in D.C. on the year, but the time is now for John Wall and company to put forth that type of performance on the road.

(2) San Antonio Spurs vs (3) Houston Rockets

Series is tied 2-2

This series has been the definition of a toss-up. The Rockets looked fantastic in Games 1 and 4 and downright terrible in Games 2 and 3. With the action shifting back to San Antonio, the Rockets will have to get the job done without solid backup big man Nene, who's been ruled out for the remainder of the postseason with a groin injury.

(1) Boston Celtics vs (4) Washington Wizards

Celtics lead series 2-0

Isaiah Thomas is a bad man. Thanks to a ridiculous 53-point effort, IT once again paced the Celtics to their sixth straight playoff win in a 129-119 overtime triumph. The Wizards are in a hole, but this series is far from over. Washington is a much different team at home, and they'll need to prove it in Game 3.

Rockets lead series 1-0

The Rockets absolutely smoked the Spurs in Game 1 as underdogs and they find themselves in that situation in Game 2 on Wednesday. San Antonio is a great team, but the Spurs have their hands full against the high-flying Rockets. If you like the Spurs to advance to the Western Conference final, the time to bet them is now.

Odds as of May 3 at Bovada

  • Rockets -130
  • Spurs +110
(2) Cleveland Cavaliers vs (3) Toronto Raptors

Cavaliers lead series 1-0

Game 1 of this series was the men against the boys, as the Cavaliers were on cruise control from the opening tip to the final buzzer. Just how much do books believe in LeBron James? Check out that -1100 series price after only one game. Good luck finding any value in backing the wine and gold at that price.

(1) Boston Celtics vs (4) Washington Wizards

Celtics lead series 1-0

Break up the Celtics. On the heels of four straight wins, Boston made it five in a row in Game 1 by thoroughly outplaying the Wizards at home and grabbing a 1-0 series lead in the process. Whatever happened in the first two games vs the Bulls in the first round, this is clearly a much different team right now.

Odds as of May 2 at Bovada

  • Celtics -350
  • Wizards +275
(1) Golden State Warriors vs (5) Utah Jazz

Series is tied 0-0

Before Game 1 of this series even gets underway, the Warriors are already huge chalk to knock off the upstart Jazz. Utah won its first playoff series since 2010 by beating the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, but this is a true David vs Goliath matchup and the Jazz will need a lot of things to go their way to have a chance.

Series is tied 0-0

We meet again. After the Raptors took the Cavaliers to the sixth game of the Eastern Conference finals a year ago, Toronto will have an opportunity for revenge. The Cavs defense has sprung a leak over the last few months and didn't look particularly great in the first round, so if the Raptors can capitalize on that, it might be a little more interesting this time around.

Odds as of May 1 at Bovada

  • Cavaliers -550
  • Raptors +375
(2) San Antonio Spurs vs (3) Houston Rockets

Series is tied 0-0

This is shaping up to be a fantastic series. It's hard to predict what's going to happen between these two Western Conference heavyweights, but the Rockets' +220 series price is great value for a team this talented.

  • Spurs -260

(1) Boston Celtics vs (8) Chicago Bulls

Celtics lead series 3-2

The Bulls are officially on the ropes. Despite taking the first two games of this series in Boston, the Bulls have collapsed without point guard Rajon Rondo in the fold and find themselves in a 3-2 hole with the series shifting back to the Windy City for Game 6. This is the Celtics team we've been waiting to see.

Odds as of April 28 at Bovada

  • Celtics -1000

(4) Washington Wizards vs (5) Atlanta Hawks

Wizards lead series 3-2

Five games into this series, the home side has won every single time. John Wall and company edged out a four-point victory over the Hawks in Game 5, but they'll be in tough to close things out at Philips Arena — a venue where they've been downright terrible over the years.

Washington simply can't get the job done in Atlanta. The Wizards looked like a completely different squad once again in Game 4 and saw their 2-0 series lead evaporate in the process.

What is going on in this series? Two games in, the Spurs looked to be on cruise control but now the Grizzlies have flipped the script after picking up two wins at the Grindhouse. San Antonio's series price value has shrunk from -10000 to -600 in the matter of a few days as a result.

The battle of MVP candidates seems to be all but over at this point, as James Harden and the Rockets have outclassed Russell Westbrook and the Thunder through four games. Westbrook is an exceptional talent, but OKC is in dire need of some secondary scoring behind him.

Once again, the young Bucks are playing with house money and the Raptors are feeling all of the pressure in this first-round series. Toronto has been a Jekyll and Hyde type of team so far, so they'll need to avoid falling in the trap of rotating good and bad games.

(4) Washington Wizards vs (5) Atlanta Hawks

Wizards lead series 2-1

The Wizards dropped the ball in a big way in Game 3 by getting hammered at Philips Arena. Washington has lost 18 of its last 22 trips to Atlanta, so if you think the Hawks stand a chance in the series, their +300 price looks solid.

This has been a train wreck of a playoff series for the Celtics so far. Chicago has defied the odds and took Games 1 and 2 in Boston in commanding fashion. Here's an even worse thought for Celtics fans: Boston hasn't won at the United Center since November 8, 2014.

The Wizards have been fantastic at home all year long and once again showed their prowess playing in D.C. by taking the first two games of the series. The Hawks are on the ropes right now and will have their work cut out for them to overtake the dynamic Wizards backcourt combo of John Wall and Bradley Beal, who are firing on all cylinders right now.

Series tied 1-1

The Clippers bounced back in Game 2 after falling short in the series opener, but it's the absence of Jazz big man Rudy Gobert that's been the biggest story of the series. Gobert's status is still up in the air, and if he can't get back on the court it will be a huge stroke of luck for the Clips.

The Raptors have looked like a Jekyll and Hyde team in this series so far after starting flat in Game 1 and getting back on track in Game 2. If Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are both on once again, the Bucks might be in trouble.

It's a tough time to be a Grizz fan. Staring down the barrel of a 2-0 deficit once again, Memphis is having nightmares of last year's playoff sweep. If the Spurs blow this series, it would be the biggest story of the postseason.

Wizards lead series 1-0

John Wall is a cheat code. Behind 32 points and 14 assists from Wall, the Wiz took Game 1 114-107 and established themselves as heavy favorites in the process. This isn't much of a shock, but the Hawks have a significant talent mismatch when it comes to Washington's stellar backcourt duo of Wall and Bradley Beal.

Odds as of April 19 at Bovada

  • Wizards -350
  • Hawks +275
(2) San Antonio Spurs vs (7) Memphis Grizzlies

Spurs lead series 2-0

It's a tough time to be a Grizz fan. Staring down the barrel of a 2-0 deficit once again, Memphis is having nightmares of last year's playoff sweep. If the Spurs blow this series, it would be the biggest story of the postseason.

Odds as of April 19 at Bovada

  • Spurs -10000
  • Grizzlies +3000
(3) Houston Rockets vs (6) Oklahoma City Thunder

Rockets lead series 1-0

James Harden was the undisputed winner of the battle between MVP candidates in Game 1, as the Rockets made it look like men vs boys in Houston's 118-87 triumph. I don't expect Game 2 to be that lopsided, but the Thunder are in major trouble if Russell Westbrook gets shut down again.

Odds as of April 19 at Bovada

  • Rockets -900
  • Thunder +550

Series Prices as of April 18

(1) Boston Celtics vs (8) Chicago Bulls

The Bulls looked great in Game 1 and surprised the Celtics and the rest of the NBA in the process. The passing of Isaiah Thomas' sister has cast a dark shadow over this series, but Thomas has announced he will play in Game 2 on Tuesday before flying back to Seattle for the funeral.

Odds as of April 18 at Bovada

  • Celtics -160
  • Bulls +140
(3) Toronto Raptors vs (6) Milwaukee Bucks

It feels like we've seen this movie before. Another Game 1, another loss for Canada's lone NBA club. After suffering a deflating 97-83 defeat in the series opener, the Dinos continued their terrible tradition of starting slow in a playoff series. There is still lots of time for Toronto to right the ship, but they'll need all-star point guard Kyle Lowry to get going or they won't stand a chance vs the young but scrappy Bucks.

(4) Los Angeles Clippers vs (5) Utah Jazz

Joe Johnson is a bad man. The veteran hit a game-winning buzzer-beater to lead the Jazz past the Clips in Game 1, but oddsmakers aren't counting out L.A. just yet. With the underdog +140 price offering some decent value, the time is now to bet Utah if you're confident the Clippers will suffer another playoff disappointment.

(2) Cleveland Cavaliers vs (7) Indiana Pacers

The Cavs tried their best to fumble away Game 1, but a missed mid-range jumper by C.J. Miles allowed LeBron James and company to escape with a one-point win. With the series opener in hand and playoff Bron Bron officially activated, Monday's contest is a must-win for the Pacers.

(2) San Antonio Spurs vs (7) Memphis Grizzlies

That's not a typo below — the Spurs really are -3000 favorites to win the series after only one game. The Grizzlies, who went 4-0 ATS against the Spurs in the regular season, didn't even come close to covering the spread in a 111-82 Game 1 drubbing. Unless you're fine with risking $100 to win $3, stay away from this one.
