The Betting Odds For The NBA Finals Are Sickening

David Hookstead | Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

The betting lines for the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are officially out of control.

Feel like making some serious money? Well, I have good news for you if you’re a Cavs fan. A simple $.83 bet on the Cavaliers to win the series pays out at $100, according to OddsShark. Want to win $100 on the Warriors? That will cost you a $36,000 wager.

Here’s the major question that we’re batting around in the office. You have to bet on the Cavs, right? I mean, a $10 bet is going to win you more than $1,000. That’s the price of lunch at Chipotle.

On the flip side of that coin, you’re a complete moron if you wager $36,000 to win $100. There is absolutely no situation where that’s justifiable. It’s sports. Anything can happen. Steph Curry and Kevin Durant could both tear an ACL tomorrow. You’re just asking to get absolutely screwed if you wager that kind of money. (SLIDESHOW: These Gorgeous Women Love Basketball)

Now, back to the Cavs. Looks like I might not have any other choice than throwing down the price of my next lunch. If they lose, so be it. If they win? Well, I’ll have a smooth grand in my pocket.
