NBA Playoffs Odds

The Celtics open as a 2.5-point favorite for Game 7 in Boston.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are 5-point favorite heading into Game 7 on Monday. 


Behind the stellar play of point guard Terry Rozier, the Celtics have surprised everyone for being in this spot, and they are primed to give the Cavaliers the biggest challenge yet. The Cavs, who seem to have scrubbed off a shaky start to the postseason, look to fend off Celts -- and compete in their fourth straight NBA Finals. LeBron James will lead the Cavs to his eighth straight finals appearance, 4-1 -- Christopher Brito

In the most anticipated playoff matchup, the Rockets will host the Warriors in a battle set to be defined by each team's offensive prowess. The Rockets retooled this offseason with the veteran Chris Paul and other defensive pieces to compete with the Warriors, who are looking to take home their second straight title and third in four years. The question remains: will the Rockets have enough, even with MVP favorite James Harden? Likely not. The Warriors advance, 4-2. -- Christopher Brito
