NBA Championship Odds
Following last night's blowout win, the Warriors are in pole position when it comes to the NBA championship odds. They're now just one win away from reaching the Western Conference Finals, where they'd take on the winner between the Clippers and Rockets. Golden State ran away with Game 5 at home, as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson took turns getting hot and taking over.

We can now find on the NBA betting odds board the Warriors at +190 or so to win the title, with the Cavaliers (+400) and Clippers (+450) close behind. Both Cleveland and Los Angeles have a chance to wrap up their conference semi-finals matchups, with Chris Paul and company getting the luxury of being at home. The Hawks have moved to +900 on the futures list after last night's last-second win over the Wizards, with the Bulls, Rockets, Grizzlies and Wizards (in that order) taking up the final spots.

Eastern Conference Odds
The Cavaliers are right around +160 to win the East, but first they need to get past the Bulls, who have a chance to force a Game 7 back in Cleveland if they can win at home tonight.

We then find the Hawks priced out at +300, with Chicago at +900 and Washington not given much of a chance at all at +2900.

Western Conference Odds
Right now it's the Warriors (+140) and Clippers (+310) that are the top two favorites to win the West, and both look primed to meet up in the conference finals in what would be an epic showdown, especially at the point guard position between Curry and Paul.

Houston (+2600) needs a win on the road tonight to extend the series and get a chance at a Game 7 at home, but that doesn't seem all that likely after seeing the Clippers dominate in both home games thus far. Memphis (+2900) will try to avoid elimination Friday back at home.
