Toronto Raptors Vs. Golden State Warriors Game 6 Betting Preview
The Golden State Warriors left Canada with a win during an eventful Game 5 of the NBA Finals. If the Warriors don’t win Game 6, everything that happened on Monday would mean nothing and the Toronto Raptors will be crown champs. Another dramatic matchup between Raptors and Warriors is coming our way on Thursday Night. Game 5 was incredible in every fashion. We got to see what the series would look like if Kevin Durant would have been healthy from the start. Spoiler alert: it would be very different. Durant put 11 points in 12 minutes going 3-3 from three-point land before he destroyed his Achilles.
Toronto Raptors Vs. Golden State Warriors Game 6 Betting Odds
|+2.5 (-110)||Spread||-2.5 (-110)|
|Over 212 (-110)||Game Total||Under 212 (-110)|
The Warriors covered the +2 spread by winning outright 106-105, but it wasn’t easy at all. Down six with three minutes left Steph Curry and Klay Thompson went full “splash brothers” mode to save the season. Game 6 should be fun because Oracle Arena will be a crazy environment from the start. The injury of Kevin Durant has mixed emotions, especially for the Warriors. They saw their main player came out of an injury to get another even more severe. His contribution helped the team. But there is this feeling of both guilt and wanting to avenge his injury. So I’m expecting a lot of effort from the Warriors.
The oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag are giving the Warriors 55% of implied probability to win and extend this series to seven games. Golden State will miss its best player from the rest of the series, and they need to get points from somewhere. In fact, we can still bet when is this series is going to end. During a Game 7, meaning a win by the Warriors on Thursday is worth -145. The implied probability is 60%. It would be the first final to go to seven games since 2016 and the fourth since 2010.
Toronto knows it is their fault this series is going for a Game 6. They were home with the chance to clinch their first NBA title in front of their fans, and they coughed a six-point lead with less than six minutes to go.
The Raptors understand their team has been better overall in this series, but they looked a little shook when Durant was on the floor. Now that he’s definitely out, they just need to put this series to bed. They can’t afford to go to a Game 7, where anything can happen.
Kawhi Leonard had arguably his best game of the playoffs in Game 4 at Oracle Arena, where he recorded 36 points and didn’t turn the ball over once. He’s the favorite to win the MVP award at -600. Imagine Leonard earning his second right by beating the Warriors three times on the road. It would be considered one of the best postseasons runs ever by any player in NBA history. I’m not going to lie. I would love for this series to go to seven games. It would be so much fun to see these two teams battling for a title in a one win scenario, but I can’t see the Warriors extending it.
Golden State has obvious problems on offense. If Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are not on the floor, then who else is scoring? Both should combine for around 70 to 75 points, but where is the rest of the offense coming from? Home court has meant nothing in this series. Both Golden State’s wins came on the road, and so did two of Toronto’s. Other than the Raptors covering the spread as favorites in Game 1, the rest of the winning bets have come on the underdog. Let’s keep it going.
