Warriors the Clear Favorite on NBA Championship Odds
The Golden State Warriors have always been the favorite to win the NBA championship in 2010, and also as they take to for a record 73rd regular period win on Wednesday absolutely nothing has really changed. If any such thing, the Warriors (-140) have become a straight bigger favorite at the sportsbooks.
Many people might second-guess laying number like -140 – especially for a team that’s in the Western Conference and can have to undergo two other groups which have won at the very least 50 games – but this Warriors group was on another level. The latest piece of evidence arrived in Sunday’s victory when they went into San Antonio – the second-best group within the NBA – and handed them their first house loss in the summer season.
As the Spurs (+300) are 2nd in line based on the chances, people believe a loss like this is extremely damning. Exactly How are they planning to beat Golden State without house court advantage? The Spurs destroyed the season show 3-1.
If it is perhaps not the Spurs whom’ll slow them down in the Western Conference playoffs, it will probably have to be either the Oklahoma City Thunder (+1200) or Los Angeles Clippers (+2800). Both are talented enough to do it, but neither option is that encouraging. The Thunder might have the one-two punch that is best into the NBA with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, but being a collective product the team is sixteenth in points per game allowed (103.3) and it is 27th in turnovers per game (15.5).
