This intriguing best-of-7 series begins Thursday in San Francisco. Caesars Sportsbook placed the Warriors (-160) as the favorite over the Celtics (+140). Golden State was a 3-point favorite to win Game 1.

The Warriors were 10-1 to win it all at the beginning of the season by Caesars Sportsbook and were among the top title contenders. In five games, they defeated the Dallas Mavericks to reach their sixth NBA Finals in eight years. Two other NBA teams only accomplished this feat: the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Golden State was a top-tier title favorite, but Boston started the season as a 50-1 long shot. Based on preseason odds, the Celtics would be the biggest long shot to win a title in over 35 years, according to sports betting archive SportsOddsHistory.com.

Boston found its rhythm during the second half of the season and won two Game 7s in the Eastern Conference playoffs to reach the finals. They beat the Heat on the road three times during the Eastern Conference Finals and played better on the road during the series. Check out the top new sportsbooks for betting on the NBA Finals!

The season series between the Celtics and Warriors was split, with each team winning on their home courts. Since Steve Kerr, the Golden State coach, took over in 2015-16, Boston has been the only team with a winning record against the Warriors.

An Iowa bettor placed a $12,000 wager on October 29th that the Warriors would win the title at 10-1. The net amount of the bet was $120,000. Both bets were placed at Caesars Sportsbook.
