NBA Western Conference Finals Odds 5/10/18 Who Do Oddsmakers Favor?

NBA Western Conference Finals Odds 5/10/18 Who Do Oddsmakers Favor?”

The Rockets have won both of their playoff series in five games.

Houston will meet the victor of the series between Golden State and New Orleans, which the Warriors lead 3-1.

Paul is coming off of possibly the best game of his career as he dropped 41 points and 10 assists on the Jazz with 7 rebounds and 0 turnovers as the Rockets clinched a berth in the Conference Finals.

The Jazz beat the odds this season even though they didn't win a championship because they overachieved in a tough western conference.

Morey then swung a trade for future Hall-of-Famer Chris Paul, added versatile veteran defenders P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute, and watched center Clint Capela continue to swiftly develop into the kind of long, lean, switchable defending machine that seems built to go up against the Warriors' offensive attack.

The betting odds favoring Golden State came despite its two losses to Houston in the two teams' three regular season meetings where the Warriors were odds on picks to prevail.

Looking back at a season both exciting and surprising, what should fans and the Jazz themselves take away from 82 regular season contests and 11 postseason battles?

"No, they earned the respect this year". Top-seeded Houston will host the series opener Monday night. The Rockets took two of the three. However, they returned home and grinded out a 99-91 victory to move on to the next round.

Thursday, May 24: Golden State at Houston, 9 p.m. That said, the Rockets are now favored by 1.5 points heading into Monday night's Game 1 at the Toyota Center in Houston, according to OddsShark. With their team of All-Stars in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green the Warriors should be a clear favorite. Three clubs return to this level of the playoffs, and the Houston Rockets join the group-but all have their eyes on the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

A playoff series full of potential storylines and we are all here for it.

Despite questions about Paul and James Harden's ability to coexist in the same backcourt, the two made it work-so well the team achieved a franchise-record 65 regular-season wins.

"This is what James really needed". This is Chris Paul's first time in a conference finals and James Harden's second with the Rockets. He's going to need a big series because we know what Kevin Durant can do offensively.

Harden has been extremely hot and cold in the playoffs thus far.

Golden State on the other hand is in a new position in this year's playoffs. "They're either going to have to slow it down, abandon the isolation, abandon something that they typically do all the time because that's just the nature of winning a championship". That is unless they can steal a game on the road.

The Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 114-112 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals last night. Like I said, home-court advantage is likely to play a huge role in this series, it will be important for Golden State to snag a game on the road if they want to take this series. They believe they're much better suited to match up with Golden State this time around, but know it won't be easy to dethrone the defending champions.

Sefolosha, who arrived from the Atlanta Hawks ahead of the season, expanded on the relationship between himself and Mitchell: "I just try to talk to him about different aspects of the game, whether it's in between the lines or whether it's outside of the court".
