The Golden State Warriors are heavy favorites to win the 2019 NBA Finals (-270 to -280 by most sportsbooks), making a series play a pricey proposition to either monetize a Warriors bet or take a stab on a Toronto Raptors upset.

A winning bet of $100 on the Raptors would return about $235 from most sportsbooks.

Even sweep bets aren't very favorable, with FanDuel putting a Warriors sweep at 5-1 while DraftKings is even lower at 9-2.
