The Warriors were already favorites to win the series (-275), but their odds moved even further (-450) after the win. The Warriors’ odds to sweep (+300) the Grizzlies are the second-lowest on the board for correct series score behind their odds win in six games (+240).
The Memphis Grizzlies escaped their first-round series against the Minnesota Timberwolves thanks to some thrilling comebacks (or epic collapses depending on perspective) and they move on to face the Golden State Warriors on short rest.
The Grizzlies actually won the regular season series with the Warriors in four games. Despite that success, the Grizzlies find themselves listed as +210 underdogs in the series, or 30.56% implied odds.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors shot the lights out in Round 1. They lead all playoff teams in Offensive Rating (121.9), Effective Field Goal Percentage (60.8%) and True Shooting Percentage (63.2%).
Much of that success was driven by the Warriors’ new lineup (to be named later) featuring Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins. That unit outscored the Grizzlies by 21.4 points per 100 possessions with a 141.2 Offensive Rating.
The Warriors are not only favored in this series, they have moved to favorites (+300) to win the NBA title surpassing the Phoenix Suns.
