Odds on NBA Finals

Cleveland is used to being the underdog. Their nickname is ?the mistake on the lake,? for heavens sake. In 2017, the Cavaliers were 2-1 dogs; 11/5 in 2016 and 9/4 in 2015. But this year, without Kyrie Irving by his side LeBron and company are even bigger long shots at 17/2 which is 8.5-1 for all you non-bettors. In fact, at 13/4, you can get better odds for a Warriors sweep than a Cavs series win.


With game one of the NBA Finals tonight at 8 p.m. central on ABC, here are some odds for those of you looking to make some side bets with your friends.
