Warriors open as big favorites over the Raptors
The Toronto Raptors shocked the Milwaukee Bucks, storming back to win four straight games after falling behind 2-0 in the series. By beating Milwaukee, Toronto also advanced to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.
But oddsmakers aren’t giving them much of a shot against the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors are listed at -320 byCaesarsSportsbook to beat the Raptors in a best-of-seven series, per ESPN. The Warriors are seeking their third straight championship.
The series begins Thursday when the Raptors will host Golden State. The Warriors will be without star Kevin Durant, but have won six straight games without him.
Caesars Sportsbook listed Toronto as +260 underdogs, meaning a bet of $100 would earn an additional $260.
