NBA Finals 2020 Odds Indicate Raptors Won’t Win Next Year
Raptors are not expected to win the upcoming 2019-2020 season because of various reasons. The odds are heavily stacked against them early on and the odds-on favourites at the moment are the Milwaukee Bucks who have a championship winning odds of +450 at the NBA Finals 2020 at the moment while both Raptors and Warriors stand in at +600.
Golden State Warriors at NBA Finals 2020: What to Expect?
The Warriors have suffered a lot when it comes to this years’ tournament. They lost two of their key players to injuries as both Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are out.
In the last game of the season, Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL injury which means he is out for at least the next few months while another big name in their camp, Kevin Durant, who suffered a ruptured Achilles Tendon will be out for at least a year – which means it won’t be possible for him to return till mid-2020.
