Will the Golden State Warriors be going up against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals next month? That’s the favored matchup for the NBA’s championship series according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com with the second round of the playoffs underway.

A Warriors vs. Cavaliers series in the NBA Finals has been set as the 2/1 favorite on those matchup props, which isn’t much of a surprise since those two teams are also favored to win their respective conference titles this spring and have been for much of the season. Golden State enters the weekend tied at 1-1 in their second-round series with Memphis, while Cleveland is knotted up with Chicago at 1-1 in their second-round series as well.

And the Bulls taking on the Warriors in the NBA Finals is the second favorite at 7/2 odds at the sportsbooks. In fact, the Warriors own the top four matchups on that props list, with Golden State vs. Atlanta at 6/1 and Golden State vs. Washington at 10/1. Also at 10/1 is an NBA Finals series between the Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Clippers, who are tied with the Houston Rockets at 1-1 in their second-round series heading into the weekend.

The longshot on the list, meanwhile, is Memphis vs. Washington at 75/1 odds. The Wizards are tied with the Hawks at 1-1 in their second-round series, but if they knocked out Atlanta they’d still have to face either the Cavaliers or the Bulls before getting to the NBA Finals.
