How many games will it take to decide the NBA Finals? Most likely outcomes revealed

The Golden State Warriors are largely favored to win the NBA Finals, but how many games they'll need do it is still to be determined.

Will they sweep the Toronto Raptors like they did the Cleveland Cavaliers last year? Or will Toronto win a game or two – or three, or even four?

According to Las Vegas, if the Raptors do manage to pull out the series victory, they'll need a full seven games to do so. Raptors in seven is as likely an outcome as Warriors in seven and Warriors in four, according to the oddsmakers at sportsbook.ag.

The least likely Finals outcome, unsurprisingly, would be a sweep by Toronto. 

Take a look below at the most likely results of the NBA Finals – so you can build your calendar around the games like the rest of us.
