We weren’t even an hour removed from the Golden State Warriors winning their second title in three years before the Las Vegas sportsbook engines started churning the narrative forward. There is little time to enjoy the here and now in the betting world, and for Vegas experts, the Warriors are as much of a lock to win a 2018 NBA title as we have seen in many years.
With the 2017 championship playing out close to script and the sportsbooks taking a hardcore bath on the lack of deviation from the favorites’ picks – Warriors in five – it’s time for them to start recouping their losses by offering you futures bets.
So where do the lines experts put your favorite teams? It’s pretty much the Warriors and everyone else.
You will have to bet $1.50 to earn back $1 right now if you are as convinced that Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Co. will repeat. But even at those odds, a lot of sharks in Vegas are still feeling like there’s plenty of value there. That’s how much Vegas likes the Warriors.
So where does your favorite team fit in the mix? We turned to our friends at SportsBookReview.com for help with the odds and where the best value is as the NBA offseason begins.
