Road Warriors? Golden State Favored Despite Houston’s Home-Court Advantage

The Westgate SuperBook in Vegas has the Dubs as -185 favorites to win their series.

Houston, Vegas has a problem with your Rockets.

Despite Houston having the best record in the NBA and home-court advantage in the Western Conference Finals, Vegas thinks the Rockets are underdogs to the Golden State Warriors.

At the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the defending-champion Warriors opened as -185 favorites to win the best-of-seven series against the Rockets which begins Monday in Houston.

Houston won two of three meetings against the Warriors during the regular season but was still installed as an underdog at +155, meaning a $100 bet would win $155 should the Rockets win.

The over/under on Game 1 opened at 225.5 and Houston is a 2-point favorite in that contest. If the line holds, it will be only the seventh time this season Golden State has been an underdog.
