It's no secret that there seems to be a consensus that the Golden State Warriors will at least be appearing in the 2019 NBA Finals, and the Warriors currently hold a 2-0 second-round series lead over the Houston Rockets.

However, which Eastern Conference team the Warriors could face in the NBA Finals is far from clear. But the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook seem to suggest the Boston Celtics are in more trouble than their 1-1 series split with the Milwaukee Bucks may reflect.

In fact, FanDuel Sportsbook's odds on this year's potential NBA Finals' outcome imply there's a better chance of the Bucks dethroning the heavily-favored Warriors than Boston making it to the NBA Finals and losing to Golden State.

It's hard to say whether this should be taken as more of an insult to the Bucks or the Celtics. On one hand, Boston is mostly healthy at the right time and taking on a team the Celtics beat in seven games last year without the likes of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.

The Celtics also showed they're clicking when it counts after sweeping the Indiana Pacers in the first round. But no matter which way you look at it, this second-round series has been an exciting one thus far, and it could come down to the wire.
