2016 NBA Finals Game 1 Action Report from Las Vegas

Cavs took the Warriors to 6 games in 2015 Finals without Irving and Love.
LAS VEGAS -- Bettors have a dilemma on their hands for Game 1 of the NBA Finals tonight. Do they ride with a healthy Cavaliers team that won its first 10 playoff games, or do they they side with the suddenly hot Warriors, who won three straight to close out the Western Conference Finals after being down 3-1 to the Thunder, which included two embarrassing defeats.

With three full days of action across Las Vegas sports books, the public appears to be siding with the defending champs, but there's almost an equal mixture numbers available with the Warriors posted as -5.5 to 6-point favorites.

William Hill sports books opened the Warriors Monday night as 5.5-point favorites and the number stood still until Wednesday morning when they moved to -6, but the move wasn't necessarily based on action.

"We're dead even so far," William Hill's head oddsmaker Nick Bogdanvich said Thursday morning. "We're a little high on the OVER (208.5), but overall on the game we're balanced. The area we're buried on is the series price with everyone jumping on Cleveland. We have the lowest price with Golden State at -200 and no one is touching them."

Just as Bogdanovich was discussing the series action, he was miffed as he saw another wager light up the screen from one of his 105 locations across the state.
