2022 NBA Finals Favorites
Golden State Warriors To Win NBA Finals (+135)
The Golden State Warriors might’ve gotten passed by the Phoenix Suns during the regular season. However, the Dubs outlasted Phoenix in the Western Conference playoff field and moved in as the favorites to win the title.
Golden State has been led by the duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, famously dubbed the Splash Brothers, who have averaged more than 47 points per game through the first two rounds of the postseason, plus lockdown defender Draymond Green has done his thing plus chipped in about eight points, eight rebounds and seven assists per game.

We were dubious about the Dubs’ supporting cast before the playoffs, but guard Jordan Poole has been the breakout player of the playoffs, averaging more than 19 points and almost five assists per game.
The Warriors have championship pedigree — this is their sixth trip to the final four in the past eight seasons — and are well-coached by the extremely likable Steve Kerr. We like Golden State to ultimately be the last team standing.
2022 NBA Finals Contenders
Boston Celtics To Win NBA Finals (+200)
The Boston Celtics, with their first-year coach Ime Udoka, two-headed scoring monster in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown and stalwart defense led by defensive player of the year Marcus Smart have climbed from (+4000) at the trade deadline to one of the favorites to win both the East and the NBA title.
Boston will have to win the title without homecourt advantage in the conference finals or NBA Finals, but the Celtics were one of the best road teams in the NBA all year, and weird things historically happen to opponents in Boston come playoff time.
Miami Heat To Win NBA Finals (+430)
The Miami Heat quietly finished as the top seed in the Eastern Conference and are still flying under the radar despite an 8-3 record through two rounds. The Heat have a balanced scoring attack featuring Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, and Bam Adebayo.

Miami is also stout defensively and has championship pedigree from its trip to the 2020 NBA Finals in the bubble. The Heat are extremely well-coached under Erik Spoelstra, and are an incredibly good value play given the odds.
Dallas Mavericks To Win NBA Finals (+650)
The Mavericks are the upstart led by Luka Doncic, who almost singlehandedly willed Dallas past the top-seeded Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference semifinal series.
Guard Jalen Brunson has been Doncic’s sidekick throughout the playoffs, averaging almost 23 points per game through two rounds, and Dallas was second only to Boston in the NBA in points-allowed per game (104.7) during the regular season. The Mavericks, who have faced the Heat in each of their two Finals appearances (2006, 2011) over their 42-year existence, have a puncher’s chance against the Warriors.
