NBA Playoffs Odds: Warriors Favored Over Rockets

Steve Kerr is confident the Golden State Warriors hold an advantage over Houston

Houston's odds are at +250, meaning a $100 bet would win $250 if the team wins the title. The Warriors had no trouble against the San Antonio Spurs or New Orleans Pelicans, dispatching them in five games respectively.

As good as the Rockets have performed, the Warriors remain in a class by themselves when they're at their best.

The betting odds favoring Golden State came despite its two losses to Houston in the two teams three regular season meetings where the Warriors were odds on picks to prevail.

But most likely, it'll be another rematch between the Warriors and Cavaliers. The Rockets most frequently used postseason lineup of James Harden, Chris Paul, Clint Capela, Trevor Ariza and P.J. Tucker has outscored opponents by 19.1 net points per 100 possessions over 237 playoff minutes. The Rockets have no chance against the Warriors if Golden State is completely healthy.Move over, Warriors.

They wrote that while Maggor made "an error in phrasing", she had "apologized on more than one occasion". She then asked for others to remove their clothing and 28 out of the 44 people in attendance did.

According to OddsShark's Stephen Campbell, the Warriors are 2-3 favorites to win their second straight National Basketball Association title, while the Cavaliers have 6-1 odds, which are the highest among the three Eastern Conference teams still in the playoffs. "But we seem to be at our best when we are threatened".

Not only is Golden State threatened, you might want to consider it an underdog. The Rockets are 2-1 both straight up and against the spread vs. The Houston guard is averaging 28.5 points and 7.4 assists per game, driving the Rockets throughout the postseason. This is the first time that the Rockets are playing in the Conference Finals since 2015.

Part of the reason why the Warriors didn't push too hard for the number one seed during the regular season is they're unafraid of being forced to win a game in the Toyota Center. "We don't have to run around talking about how bad we want to play somebody", Green told Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle.
