NBA 2016-17 Betting Odds - Warriors favoured to win despite losing NBA crown

  • The Warriors are favoured to win the 2017 NBA title
  • The Cavaliers are the second favorites to repeat as champions
  • The Thunder and Spurs are the other contenders

The Golden State Warriors have been installed as the favourites to win the 2016-17 NBA title despite losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Golden State Warriors opened as favourites to win the 2016-17 NBA title just hours after losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.

The Warriors can be backed at $3.00 with CrownBet to regain the Larry O'Brien Trophy. The Big Three of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green all return for another shot at the crown after a disappointing finish this past season. 

The Warriors posted the best start in NBA history and most consecutive home wins and won a record 73 games in the regular season. A second-straight NBA title would've been the icing on the cake. 

But it wasn't meant to be as the Cavaliers proved to be the hungrier team as the Eastern Conference champions defeated the Warriors 93-89 in Game 7 at the Oracle Arena to win their first ever NBA title. 

The Cavaliers became the first team to come back from a 1-3 series deficit and win the NBA Finals. They also handed the city of Cleveland its first title in a major US professional sport (NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL) since the legendary Jim Brown led the Browns to the 1964 NFL crown during the pre-Super Bowl era.

The Cavaliers can be backed at $3.75 to repeat as NBA champions.

The San Antonio Spurs, meanwhile, are best priced at $7.00 to win the 2017 NBA title. The ageing Western Conference powerhouse had a dominant 2016 regular season but lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the second round of the playoffs. 

As for the Thunder, they can be backed at $9.00 to win their first NBA title since moving from Seattle. The big question for OKC fans is whether Kevin Durant will stay or sign with another club when he becomes a free agent this summer.

The other contenders for the 2017 NBA title are the Los Angeles Clippers ($15), Boston Celtics ($21) and Miami Heat ($23).
