NBA Finals Betting Preview- Game 6

NBA Finals - Game 6
Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors
Thursday, June 13th - 9:00pm ET - ORACLE Arena, Oakland, CA
Betting Line: Golden State -2.5, Total 211.5

Golden State survived a late 4th quarter comeback from Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors in Game 5 on Monday night. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson hit a pair of big threes in the final minutes to wipe out Toronto's lead and put the Warriors ahead 106-105. Toronto had the ball with 15.7 seconds remaining. Kyle Lowry shot a three from the weak corner that wasn't even close.

With that win, the Warriors live to fight another day. Game 6 of the NBA Finals will be played this Thursday at ORACLE Arena. They will be without Kevin Durant and Kevon Looney in the potential elimination game.

Durant, whose return to action was questionable to say the least, left the game with a possible achilles tear.

Looney re-aggravated the chest injury he suffered earlier in the series.

The Warriors will rely heavily on the Splash Brothers. Steph and Klay are phenomenally together. They are arguably the best backcourt duo in the history of the game. Their impact on the team cannot go unnoticed. But will it be enough to pull out a win in Game 6?

Toronto put together a solid team effort in Game 5. They got help from everyone on the floor. Nick Nurse played nine players in Game 5. Six of them scored double digits. Yet they lost.

The Raptors shot just 25% from three-point range compared to Golden State's 48%. That's the only area they struggled. The fact is, the Raps should have won the game.

Steph and Klay stepped up when it counted. DeMarcus Cousins will clean up his act in Game 6. Draymond Green will keep his emotions in check. The Splash Bros will make it rain in front of their home crowd.

Prepare for an epic Game 7!

Golden State -2.5 is the pick.
