Much like the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference, the Golden State Warriors are going to run the table in the Western Conference. The Cavaliers and Warriors are going to play in the NBA Finals for the third straight season. The Warriors swept the Trail Blazers, and we expect Golden State to sweep the Jazz as well. Utah went the distance in a series win over the Clippers. The Jazz just do not have enough offense to keep up with the Warriors here. Bet on the Golden State Warriors in 4 games over the Utah Jazz. The Golden State Warriors are massive favorites to win this series.

San Antonio Spurs over Houston Rockets in 6 games

James Harden and the high scoring Houston Rockets against San Antonio and their fundamental, grind it out style of basketball. The Rockets are going to want to run the basketball up and down the court. If they can dictate the pace, they are going to have quite the chance. After a game or two though, the Spurs are going to be able to slow Houston down. Take the more disciplined team in this one. The Spurs over the Rockets in 6 games. The San Antonio Spurs are -260 to win this series.
