Analysis

The Warriors are overwhelming favorites for a reason NBA betting aficionados and it’s really because they have four all-stars going up against LeBron Jame’s virtual one-man-gang act in Cleveland. The Warriors also have home-court advantage and look like a sure-fire pick to take out a Cavaliers team they beat 4-1 in last year’s final that also had a prime-time player in sweet-shooting all-star point guard Kyrie Irving. If the 2018 NBA Finals lasts more than five games at most, I’ll be surprised!
