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.
When 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
