The Warriors have an opportunity to win the 2017 NBA Championship tonight in Cleveland. According to OddsShark, the Warriors are favored by six points. The over-under is set at 227 points.
It will be interesting to see how the Cavs respond to a disappointing narrow loss in Game 3. The Cavs played their best game of the series, but still lost the game after the Warriors came back in the final two minutes. While Cleveland could point to last year’s finals comeback for confidence, the Cavs are fighting a much different Warriors team with the presence of Kevin Durant.
The OddsShark computer likes the Warriors’ chances to close out the series tonight. The computer projects a 117.4-108.7 Warriors victory. The computer is taking the Warriors to cover the spread and the under on the point total.
It is a safe bet given Golden State’s perfect performance against the spread in all three finals games. The total has gone over in two of those three games. The Warriors streak extends back to the Western Conference Finals. Golden State is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games.
With how much energy the Cavs expended in their loss last game, Heavy sides with the OddsShark computer. We like the Warriors to win the championship in Cleveland. It is hard to imagine Cleveland recovering from Game 3. The bad news for Cavs fans is the Warriors did not play their best game and still ended up victorious.
Heavy likes the Warriors to both win the title and continue their win streak against the spread.
Heavy’s Pick: Warriors 110 Cavs 102. Warriors -6. Under on the Point Total.
