Bookmakers have released the 2022 NBA Finals odds, and the Golden State Warriors opened as a -155 favorite with a +135 price tag coming back on the Boston Celtics. Placing $155 on GSW at Caesars Sportsbook would return $100 profit, and a $100 wager on the Celtics would net $135 profit. In addition, Caesars is providing odds on all the possible series outcomes.

Caesars Sportsbook provides bettors with multiple options to wager on the 2022 NBA Finals. 

The series game line is -1.5 on the Warriors. If you were to wager on this line, bettors would need GSW to win the series within six games or less. Although, risk-takers expecting a seven-game series win from GSW can find +160 odds. Celtics +1.5 games are tempting with -190 odds, so your ticket would still cash if GSW won the series 4-3. 

Jayson Tatum is expected to lead the scoreboards during the series as bookmakers labeled him with a -120 price to score the most points. Draymond Green leads the odds in expected assists at -130. Al Horford tops the list in series rebounds at +130.   

Vegas is anticipating a drawn-out series, and they’re offering +170 if you believe the series will last seven games and +190 if you think it ends within six. The NBA odds dramatically rise at five games, where you can receive some exceptional betting value at +300, with a four-game sweep paying an extravagant +700. 

During the NBA regular season, the two sides split their two-game series with one win apiece. The Celtics are notable as the lone team who owns a winning record versus GSW since the arrival of Steve Kerr to the head coaching position (9-7); however, Golden State holds a home-court advantage and a significant three days of extra rest. As expected, the series is a toss-up with the two most in-form teams of the season, but this is great news for avid bettors as the opportunities to profit become wider.
