Are the Warriors the Favorites Again vs Cavaliers in 2016 NBA Finals?

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors are back in the NBA Finals after completing a miraculous 3-1 comeback versus the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals. We now have our rematch of last year's Finals, as the Warriors will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers again. 

Of course, Golden State defeated Cleveland in six games. However, the Cavs are fully healthy this year. Do they stand a better chance in the odds? Not really.

From ESPN:

After finishing off a remarkable comeback from being down 3 games to 1 in the Western Conference finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State opened as a -185 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook on Monday night, with the Cavaliers a +165 underdog.

By early Tuesday morning, money had come in on Golden State, pushing it to -210 and Cleveland to +180.

At William Hill US, Golden State opened as a -250 favorite with Cleveland at +210; the series price remained the same on Tuesday morning.

The Warriors open up as 5.5-point favorites for Game 1, which they host versus the Cavs on Thursday night. This year marks the fifth time in LeBron James' seven NBA Finals appearances that his team will be the underdog.
