2019 NBA Finals: Raptors-Warriors Betting Odds, Lines, Prop Bets, and More

Warriors Raptors

It’s an NBA dynasty vs. a first-time finalist.

It’s America vs. O Canada!

It’s Durant vs. wanting to be needed.

It’s Drake vs. the sideline.

That’s right — it’s Warriors vs. Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals.

Game 1 tips off tonight in Toronto, and the Golden State Warriors — who are going for a 4th title in 5 years — are the heavy favored to beat the Toronto Raptors in the best-of-7 series.

The Warriors were heavily favored to win the NBA championship before the 2018-19 season began while the Raptors were among the top 5 most likely teams in the NBA to win it all at pretty much every sportsbook.

Warriors-195-30073.22%-280-265-290
Raptors+1400+25026.78%+230+225+235

However, when it comes to tonight’s Kevin Durant-less (and Boogie-less too, I guess) game, there isn’t a clear consensus on which team is more likely to win.

The Warriors opened as a 1-point favorite for the Game 1 point spread, but public money has caused the betting line to flip to the Raptors being favored at sportsbooks, like BetOnline.

The money line mirrors the spread for the most part, and oddsmakers are predicting roughly around 213.5 to 214 total points scored from both teams on the over/under.

Drake Props

Oh, you thought team and player statistics were the only props you could bet on?

For those who don’t know, Drake is one of the biggest and best-selling rappers in the world and was born in Toronto.

Drake also happens to be a Raptors courtside season ticket holder who is known for having fun on sidelines. Some even call him the team’s “unofficial global ambassador.”

But recently, he caused some “controversy” when he gave Raptors head coach Nick Nurse a shoulder massage during a game in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Fortunately for all of us, oddsmakers decided to take advantage of this and have some fun with Drake and the Raptors first-ever trip to the finals.
