Western Conference Finals Prediction

The Western Conference Finals is here. With so many people already penciling in Warriors-Cavaliers III, there seems to be no point in even playing this series if you listen to many experts.

I believe the Spurs deserve more respect then they are getting and I do not expect the Warriors to just walk into the NBA finals.

160108205255-kawhi-leonard-stephen-curry-san-antonio-spurs-v-golden-state-warriors---game-six.1200x672When you are looking at this series from a gamblers point of view, if you decide to play this series, my advice is to go with the Spurs.  You may think I am crazy, but if you are playing against Vegas you are playing by their odds.

The Spurs were +700 underdogs at one point meaning that a $100 bet on the Spurs would win you $700. Currently before tip off the Warriors are -900 favorites, meaning that a $100 bet on the Warriors would only win you $11.  So if you are betting $100 and have it to lose, what is the better investment, $100 to win $700 on San Antonio or risking $100 to win only $11 on Golden State?

I have made a play on the Spurs +700 to win the series.  However, with all money equal my prediction would be Warriors in 7. But in Vegas the odds are not equal, so I am taking the Spurs to shock the world.

 

Game One Pick: Spurs +10.5
