Today on “Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell,” RJ recaps game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, and analyzes the series up to this point. The series has been so close up to this point, that even Vegas is having a hard time determining lines, favorites and odds. RJ dives in to how even these teams are, and if there’s any give in these team’s rosters.
RJ Bell: “Right now, each of these teams are deficient compared to a typical NBA Champion. Golden State doesn’t have the depth; they lack that second or third best player, but they have that superstar. On the other hand, Boston has depth, but they lack that ‘put the team on his back’ type player. Tatum might have that skill, but the jury is still out. Both of those deficiencies added up, make these teams even, which is what the betting market is right now. It’s a coin flip with five games left.”
