This year, Golden State is historically favored to beat Cleveland in the Finals. In Vegas, their odds to win the title are 1/10, while the odds for the Cavs are just 6/1. It’s been an astounding 16 years since there was a favorite that large. The Warriors are also 12-point favorites for Game 1 in Oakland, a figure that is tied for the largest Finals point spread since 1991. But, with LeBron on the court, who knows what could happen.
