NBA Finals odds: Celtics slight favorites over Warriors in Game 6 originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals will be the final game at TD Garden this season. However, oddsmakers are not expecting it to be the final game of the NBA season as a whole.
The Golden State Warriors are just one win away from their fourth NBA title in eight years. They can clinch a championship on Thursday, but that will require a Game 6 road win against the Boston Celtics.
Boston is listed as a slight favorite to extend the series to a decisive Game 7 on Sunday. Still, the odds indicate it wouldn't be a major surprise if Golden State closes out the series in six games.
Here are the lines, props and odds to keep an eye on ahead of Thursday’s contest:
