    Now to the series

    Tor is just simply the worst possible matchup for the warriors. Leonard is a monster that State has never faced in the finals. I know some people will mention James but kawhi is just different. James was predictable. Kawhi is clearly the best player in the league. Tor is a better team vs State that won't have Durant. The warriors got away winning with role guys vs junk like Portland but that won't happen in this round.

    Tor in 6+1200(1*)

    Tor in 7+600(3*)

    Raptors series price+240(4.5*)


    I really hope your wrong. But I still have to say goodluck to you. You earned my respect to you as capper. Your analysis are on point but it’s one sided in favor of Raps. You forgot the Houston series, you know how that series ended. Don’t underestimate Portland they play all in every single game against Dubs. Fatigue was a factor on that series, Blaze played 7 games vs. Denver plus that 4overtime. On the other end Raps played... Aaron Gordon, Carter-Williams, Vucevic, Embiid, Jimmy buckets, Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, Giannis, Lopez, Middleton, Ilyasova. Those mofos are long and It took them 18 games to get to the finals. While Golden State did it in 16 games plus 10 days off before finals. I don’t beleive in that saying “they will be rusty” they’re humans not robots, Bodies needs rest. Come game time they’ll be ready to run n’ gun... I think it’s the other way around... Raps will face way different team this time. Golden State is not ISO team anymore without KD and Boogie. Kawhi is a great player... in my opinion he is the best player in the east. He’s been to the finals before but with different team. Raps rely on him too much. We’ll see how he handle the pressure. ONLY advantage Raps have on this series are 1. Kawhi 2. Homecourt 3. Fans

They won on the road against Houston with Durant out, and they controlled the game. Toronto's half court offense still struggles outside of Kawhi and the Warriors are very strong defensively. Toronto's season is also a success whether they win the title or not, this is their first finals appearance in the franchise's history and they celebrated like they won the Finals.
    Actually they are 5-0 in the playoffs. I pointed that out. I do not care what they did without him in the regular season.

    I think Cousins would help Warriors more than Durant. Durant will try to do too much to prove they need him. But he'll just mess up team chemistry again and if he's not 100%, he'll hurt them even more.

    Toronto will still be dogs no matter what happens in Gm 1, even Gm 2

    This means it's not worth the risk to take them going in

    You made a thread saying the deadbolt lock warriors (-170) all along were going to win the title? Is that some sort of major prediction? The warriors were supposed to win all along.

    your statement is outrageous lol best defender leonard faced by far??? Kawhi been double teamed, triple teamed all playoffs long, and there's a guy called JIMMY freaking BUTLER who I think is just as good as Iguodala defensively, if not better.

    Rest is no factor here buddy, if anything it prepared Toronto well for tough fought series. they are having 5 days off before the finals for Toronto that is. That's a lot of freaking rest for elite athletes, unless you are injured, you will be fine.

    Nobody thinks Butler is a better defender than Igoudala, not close, Igoudala won Finals MVP for his defense on James, Butler's defense on Kawhi was trash.

    Sorry clueless pavyracer. They already won back to back titles. Come up with something new. I already clowned you in the last round. Get some new material. I know you Greek folk are ancient but Greeks were considered smart at one time.

    I'm pretty sure not a single Greek lost 35 units betting Brazil to win the World Cup last summer but you managed to do what no one has ever achieved before. Lose a ton of money at the World Cup where everyone wins a lot.

    OK, I'm sold. That's how ez I am:

    *500 if Raps win.
    *1000 bonus if Raps in 6 or fewer.

    Your take on Durant factor is very interesting. I've been saying for a while that Durant is an outsider in that locker room.

    The Million Dollar Question is whether Warriors are better WITHOUT Durant. Sounds blasphemous, but there's an element of truth to it. We've talked about it b4...Durant is a mental midget, LOL.

    If you add this to the 137 units you lost in regular NBA season you are down -100 units. I graded your 16 plays on one Friday night. You went 2-14 and lost 20 units on that night alone.

    So grade the whole season. You are down in triple digits in NBA this year but you only grade the 2 nights out of the whole year you had a win. We know how you operate. Not grading the huge losses until somebody like me calls out your douchebaggery and you go hiding for a few days.

    Dubs faced kawhi on the spurs. Spurs were up 2-1 before kawhi got injured.

    You also graded an NBA night where i was up big. The night the Suns won in Milwaukee. I know how you operate. You hide when I win. I know your douchebag style. You have an obsession with me. I'm in your head. You think of me when you go to bed and when you wake up.
