NBA Championship Odds
If you missed it, road teams were the way to go with your NBA picks last night, as both the Hawks and Warriors got the job done. Both series are now at 2-2 and will now be decided by a best of three.

How are the NBA betting lines shaping up now? It's no surprise to see Golden State atop the futures list at right around +200 to win the title. Cleveland and the Los Angeles Clippers are both quoted at approximately +450, with Atlanta and Chicago listed at +1100. According to the NBA betting odds, Memphis, Houston and Washington are all in trouble, with the Rockets and Wizards both +6700 longshots to capture the title.

Eastern Conference Odds
The Hawks may have picked up a huge road win last night to re-gain control of their series against Washington, but they're still playing second-fiddle to LeBron James and the Cavaliers when it comes to the futures odds in the East. Cleveland has a chance to go up 3-2 in the series at home tonight, this coming after back-to-back games which were decided by buzzer beaters.

It's clear that the winner of the Cavaliers/Bulls series would immediately become the favorite to win the East, with Chicago quoted at +400 as of now.

Western Conference Odds
Things are still wide open in the West too, especially after Golden State was able to even up the series at two games apiece last night. The Warriors are subsequently priced out at +150 to be the last ones standing in the conference, with Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the Clippers close behind at +280.

It's win or go home for Houston (+4100) tonight, as they're down 3-1 and are facing elimination, while oddsmakers are very confident in Golden State's chances of overcoming Memphis to move on to the Western Conference finals. Game 5 will be Wednesday night.
