NBA Finals Betting Odds & NHL Stanley Cup Betting Odds
It’s the end of May which means it’s time to crown champions for the NHL and NBA. For the first time, New Jersey online sports betting sites can offer odds on the two spring finals series.
Basketball has done huge handle in 2019, keeping numbers around the level we saw during football season. Hockey hasn’t been as successful, as it’s more nuanced to bet (and the local teams haven’t been great).
With the puck already dropped in the Stanley Cup Finals, we still have some time to go over the prices. If you haven’t made a bet on the NBA Finals, consider this your guide before it gets started in Toronto Thursday.
Warriors vs. Raptors NBA Finals Betting Odds
Dub City versus the Six. Chef, KD, and their crew against The Klaw and his team. Golden State Warriors want to make it three straight and four of five titles, while the Toronto Raptors look to bring the first title to Toronto in over 25 years.
