NBA Championship Betting Odds - Warriors remain favourites for title despite losing Game 3

  • The Warriors remain favorites despite losing Game 3
  • Cleveland is unbeaten at home in the playoffs 
  • The Cavaliers are favored to win Game 4
Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors remain the favourites to win the NBA title despite getting a beating in Cleveland in Game 3. 

Watch and bet on the NBA Finals live at bet365.

The odds with leading bookmaker bet365, however, have been reduced after the Cavaliers crushed the Warriors 120-90 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Game 3 of their best-of-seven duel.

The defending champions are now 2/9 favorites while the Cavaliers are 7/2 underdogs to win their maiden crown. The Warriors were priced at 1/9 before Game 3 while the Cavaliers were listed at 6/1.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 62 points in Game 3 as they made up for the absence of Kevin Love. James finished with 32 points, 11 rebounds and six assists while Irving tallied 30 points and eight assists. 

JR Smith added 20 points after being a non-factor in the first two games while Tristan Thompson had 14 points and 13 rebounds. It remains uncertain if Love can suit up in Game 4 after being elbowed in the head by Harrison Barnes in Game 2. 

Stephen Curry paced Golden State with 19 points while Barnes had 18 points and eight rebounds. Andre Iguodala had 11 points off the bench while Klay Thompson added 10. Draymond Green was held to six points after erupting for 28 in Game 2. 

The Cavaliers have yet to lose at home in the ongoing playoffs and they opened as -2 favorites @ 10/11 to win Game 4. 

Bookmakers expect the series to go down the wire with the odds for a Game 7 finish priced at 6/4. A Game 5 ending is listed at 7/4 while a Game 6 finish is at 9/5.
