The Golden State Warriors, minus Kevin Durant, have navigated their way to a fifth straight NBA Finals berth with their recent sweep of the Portland Trailblazers in the Western Conference Finals.

While the sweep would suggest the Warriors dominated the series, a closer look into the numbers might suggest otherwise. The Dubs overcame a 15-point deficit in each of the last three games of the series, while also trailing at half time in every game after Game 1, twice by double digits.

As such, the Warriors crushed all live betting odds in these three games, covering each of their halftime spreads. It could make for an attractive option once again if they fall behind early in the NBA Finals.

It's surely something to keep an eye out for on FanDuel Sportsbook throughout the rest of this playoff run.
