Some are forecasting one of the more predictable campaigns in a long time and tipping the Golden State Warriors as sure things for the NBA Championship. The bookmakers are in agreement with Golden State favorites through bet365 NBA betting odds of 5/6 and it’s hard to envision any other team lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy at the end of the season.

Many famous sports stars have enjoyed success marketing themselves in the world of games. Often, sports players will act as the cover stars for games to promote them.
