2017 NBA Finals Preview

We have reached the final stage of the 2017 NBA season and for the third season in a row the NBA Finals will include the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Warriors have been the best team in the NBA this season and they will go into the NBA Finals as clear favourites, but the Cavaliers showed last year that they are capable of going to another level when it counts.

Will the Golden State Warriors finish the job this season or will the Cleveland Cavaliers claim another upset win? Our complete 2017 NBA Finals tips can be found below and we will keep you updated with betting plays right throughout the series.

Golden State Warriors Vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Friday 2 June, 11.00am, Oracle Arena

The Golden State Warriors have the home court advantage in this clash and they go into it as clear favourites, while the line has been set at seven points.

Golden State are incredibly tough to beat at the Oracle Arena and they have won 27 of their past 30 games as home favourites, while they are 14-13-3 against the line in this scenario.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have won only 12 of their past 30 games as away underdogs, but they are 17-13 against the line.

The market looks to have the head-to-head prices just about right and the value in this clash is found in the Total Points betting market.

NBA Finals games can often be tense and low-scoring affairs and backing the Under in games involving either the games during the NBA Playoffs has proven to be a profitable betting play.

Back Under 225.5 Points

Monday 5 June, 11.00am, Oracle Arena

The Under saluted comfortably in the opening game of the season and it once again looks like the value betting play in this clash.

Cleveland had plenty of problems scoring points against the Golden State Warriors and the majority of their best results against their rivals have come when they have limited the scoring ability of the Warriors.

The Under has now been a successful betting play in 18 of the past 30 games played by the Warriors as home favourites as well as 21 of the past 30 games played by the Cavaliers as away underdogs.

Back Under 221.5 Points

Thursday 8 June, 11.00am, Quicken Loans Arena

The Golden State Warriors have comfortably won the first two games of the 2017 NBA Finals and this is close to a must-win clash for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Golden State were able to score at will during the second game of this series and the tandem of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant has proven impossible for the Cavaliers to stop.

Cleveland may have the home-court advantage, but it is Golden State that will go into this clash as clear favourites.

The Warriors have won 23 of their past 30 games as away favourites for a clear profit and they are 17-13  against the line in this scenario.

Winning as away underdogs has been somewhat of an issue for Cleveland and they have won only 11 of their past 30 games in this scenario, but they are 18-12 against the line.

It really is tough to see Golden State losing in their current form and they can comfortably cover the line of 2.5 points.

Back Golden State To Beat The Line (-2.5 Points)

Cleveland Cavaliers Vs Golden State Warriors

Saturday 10 June, 11.00am, Quicken Loans Arena

This is the last chance for the Cleveland Cavaliers and they simply must win this clash to have any chance of claiming back-to-back NBA Championships.

All of the relevant betting statistics favor the Golden State Warriors once again and it is very tough to bet against them, but you just get the feeling that the Cleveland Cavaliers will not go down without a fight.

Lebron James will be desperate to avoid a NBA Finals humbling and he can single-handily lead the the Cavaliers to victory, but their is no value at their current quote.

No Bet

Golden State Warriors Vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Tuesday 13 June, 11.00am, Oracle Arena

The Golden State Warriors currently lead the NBA Final 3-1 and they will be desperate to secure the series in this clash before the demons of last year come back to haunt them.

Golden State will go into this clash as clear favourites and they really are incredibly tough to beat in front of their home fans at the Oracle Arena.

The Warriors have won 28 of their past 30 games as home favourites and they are now 16-11-3 against the line in this scenario.

Cleveland were able to keep their cool in the final quarter of their most recent clash with the Warriors, but replicating that performance at Oracle Arena will be much easier said than done.

The Cavaliers have won only eight of their past 30 games as away underdogs and they are 13-17 against the line in this scenario.

Golden State really should be able to secure the NBA Title in this clash and they are a good bet to do it in emphatic fashion.
