NBA Championship Betting Favorite: Golden State Warriors -220

The Golden State Warriors remain the team to beat for the NBA Championship. With their 55-24 record, Golden State currently has a 2-game lead over the Denver Nuggets for the best record in the Western Conference.

If the Warriors lock down the best record in the West, they most definitely will be very difficult to beat. However, this could be the first time in the past three seasons where the Warriors, although legitimate favorites, don’t look like a lock. DeMarcus Cousins hasn’t smoothly folded into the Warriors starting five while Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson haven’t been as dominating.

Not only that, but the bench doesn’t seem as solid has it has the past couple of seasons. Golden State could be vulnerable.

NBA Championship Smart Pick: Milwaukee Bucks +750

The team to back to beat the Warriors are the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks have the best overall record in the NBA at 59-21. Milwaukee has sort of become the Eastern Conferences version of the Golden State Warriors. They rank first in points per game at 118.2. They also rank first in field goal percentage allowed at 43.3%.

Not only that, but the likely NBA MVP this season plays for Milwaukee. The amazing Greek Freak, Giannis Antetounkempo, leads Milwaukee in points, rebounds, and assists per game. Giannis averages 27.7 points, 5.9 assists, and 12.5 boards per. He also shoots 57.7% from the field.

He’s unstoppable. What’s scary is that if you manage to contain the Greek Freak, Milwaukee throws Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe at you. The Bucks have a real shot of winning the NBA Championship.

NBA Championship Long Shot Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder +3500

The Denver Nuggets are a decent play at +1800 as well, but OKC offers more value, making them the slightly better long shot play to win the NBA Championship this season. Oklahoma City has a 46-33 record. That’s a good record, but it’s not close to Denver or Golden State.

The reason to believe the Thunder turn it on in the playoffs, though, is because no team, not even the Warriors, has a couple of players that can dominate the way OKC does. Both Paul George and Russell Westrbrook can take over. The pair work together very well.

If the two are shooting well in the playoffs, most teams will find it difficult to beat the Thunder because you must double-team Russell and PG-13. That makes the Oklahoma City Thunder the most dangerous long shot play to win the 2019 NBA Championship.

[UPDATED] The 2019 NBA regular season ends later this week, but you can bet on the who will win the 2019 NBA Championship now.
