Although the NBA odds have been against them since the onset, the Golden State Warriors have proven yet again that they’re no pushover in the Western Conference playoff picture. Now having evened their series at two game apiece, they’ll head back to Texas for another matchup with the San Antonio Spurs.
It may have taken overtime, but the fact that Game 4 at Oracle Arena came down to the wire is indicative of just how far this young Warriors franchise has come. It may be just their second postseason appearance since 1994, but the roster is playing like a convoy of established veterans – against a convoy of established veterans.
With 7/1 odds of winning the Western Conference and 20/1 NBA futures, the Warriors have slowly and gradually emerged as a compelling NBA betting option. The Spurs, in contrast, in their 23rd postseason appearance of the past 24 years, have 10/11 odds of winning the west and title odds of 13/2.
Weigh in on what’s fast become the most exciting series in the NBA this postseason. The Spurs may be the favorites, but Golden State has been defying expectations all year long.
