If the oddsmakers are right, Game 5 of the NBA Finals will be the last one.
The Toronto Raptors lead the Golden State Warriors 3-1 and are favored by 1.5 points in Monday night’s game in Toronto. Pennsylvanians looking to join the action can set up an account in the newly-minted PlaySugarHouse Pennsylvania online sportsbook.
SugarHouse is PA’s first online sportsbook
Certainly, many other PA online sportsbooks will enter the fray, but for now, SugarHouse is the only gateway to online sports betting and NBA Finals action.
At press time, SugarHouse’s total points line for Monday’s Game 5 was 214 points.
Kevin Durant’s return could move betting lines
According to NBA.com, Warriors superstar forward Kevin Durant is listed as questionable to return in Game 5 after missing the first four games of the series.
If Durant’s playing status is clarified before tip-off, the betting lines could lean more toward Golden State.
The Warriors team total is currently set at 106.5 on SugarHouse. The Raptors team total is 107.5.
