The 2017 NBA Finals begin on Thursday, June 1 with the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on the Golden State Warriors.

It is the exact same matchup we have seen in the NBA Finals for the last 2 years, as Golden State won in 2015, while the Cavaliers won last year.

Cleveland Cavaliers +7-110 o226.5 -110 +267

Golden State Warriors -7-110 u226.5 -110 -330

The Warriors have rolled through the 2017 NBA Playoffs, winning all 12 of their games, sweeping Portland, Utah and San Antonio.

The Cavaliers have been almost as dominant, as they are 11-1 in the playoffs with sweeps against Indiana and Toronto and a 4-1 series win against Boston.
