Latest Golden State Warriors Betting Odds & Information
The Golden State Warriors are always a popular NBA Futures betting pick and it’s no surprise to see them as one of the favorites to win the 2022 NBA Championships with the NBA betting apps who have released early odds.
The Warriors are priced at +800 to win the Championship and they are clearly one of the NBA Finals contenders, with only the Brooklyn Nets and LA Lakers shorter odds. If Steph Curry stays fit and Kaly Thompson finds form then it may be another good year for the Warriors. They’re one of the teams to beat and will be hungry after a lean couple of seasons.
These odds are subject to change though, particularly after the NBA Draft has been completed.
