The 2016-17 NBA Playoff teams have been set, and 5Dimes was the first offshore sportsbook to post series odds for the 1st round:
|Matchup||April 13 Opener|
The vig/juice is a little steep right now since odds just opened, but those are likely to tighten up over the next couple days. Unlike this year’s NHL Playoffs, every higher seed is considerably favored. The Warriors are the highest at -6000 while the closest matchups are expected to be LAC/UTA and WAS/ATL both listed at -210/+160. These series prices will be updated throughout the 1st round.
Currently the most likely NBA Finals matchup is Cavs/Warriors at -118 odds. This matchup was also the favorite before the season at +125 odds, so very little has changed after the 82 game regular season. Here’s a look at the most likely NBA Finals matchups at 5Dimes:
