NBA Finals Betting Recap: Sportsbooks Get Crushed

The majority of the betting tickets were on the Golden State Warriors to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers this NBA Finals, and that is exactly what happened.

The Warriors, led by Kevin Durant and Steph Curry, needed just five games to win their second NBA title in three years.

While there was a small consolation prize for sportsbooks on the game 5 spread, a significant percentage of players parlayed Golden State with other players to win outright at the price of -370. Golden State is already the odds on favorite to repeat as the 2018 champion at some sports betting sites. Sportsbook Review will release a comparison of next year's futures market odds soon.

The game 5 total landed on 249, sailing over the posted total of 231 points. Steph Curry and Kevin Durant combined for 73 points.
