Latest Golden State Warriors Betting Odds & Information

If you are looking to bet on the Golden State Warriors, make sure to check our guide about the best California betting sites. You can also use one of the numerous US online sportsbooks or one of the offshore betting sites.

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. For all up to date NBA Betting information be sure to check back elsewhere on the site regularly, where our team will not only post the latest odds from the best NBA Sportsbooks but also some analysis and expert predictions for the 2022 NBA season.
