The 2022 NBA Finals are all but set. The Golden State Warriors have come out of the Western Conference after defeating the Dallas Mavericks in five games. Meanwhile, in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics have two chances (Friday and Sunday) to win a game and advance to the Finals themselves.

If you're already looking ahead to the 2022 NBA Finals, here's a look at the matchup, the schedule, and how you can watch the series.

NBA Finals 2022 Matchup

Golden State has already advanced to the Finals. Boston has a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals over the Miami Heat, and the odds suggest the Celtics will close it out.

Boston is a -1400 favorite to advance to the NBA Finals, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Miami has +800 odds to advance. The series is also likely to end Friday, as the Celtics have -450 odds to finish the Heat off in six games and +600 odds to win in seven; the Heat are available at +800 to win in seven.

If it is indeed a Celtics-Warriors Finals, the odds appear to give Golden State the slight edge. The Warriors are available at -160 to win it all, while the Celtics have +140 odds. Those odds will be a little closer to 50/50 assuming Boston advances, but Golden State should maintain a slight edge.
