Golden State Warriors still heavy favorites to win NBA title

The Cleveland Cavaliers swept the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the NBA playoffs, but a bet on them to win the championship will still pay a lot more money than going with Golden State. GettyImages-632137360

The Warriors remain heavy favorites to hoist the title, getting 1/2 odds from Bovada.

The defending champion Cavs are next at 3/1 with a steep drop after that to 9/1 for the San Antonio Spurs.

If you want a good value bet, take a flyer on the Washington Wizards, who are getting the same 75/1 odds as the Utah Jazz despite playing in the weaker Eastern Conference.

(The Wiz are down a game in their second-round series against Boston, but that is hardly insurmountable.)
