Tonight, for the first time in NBA history, an NBA Finals game will be held in Canada. The Toronto Raptors finished second in the league, eliminating the Magic, 76ers and Bucks on their path to the Finals, in which they’ll start with home-court advantage. The Golden State Warriors knocked out the Clippers, Rockets and Trail Blazers on the Western side of the playoff bracket. Now the two teams will meet for the third time this season, with the Raptors winning both contests in the regular season.

Regardless of home-court advantage, the Warriors are the favorites in the series, and bettors have been backing that up. But Game 1 is a different story. With Kevin Durant out and DeMarcus Cousins questionable, the Raptors are favored to win. Still, Kawhi Leonard and Co. will need to put together a near-perfect performance in order to set the tone for the series. The Warriors have lost one playoff series in the past five seasons, making them the ultimate end boss on the extremely difficult level.

Game 1 tips off at 9:10 p.m. ET, and here’s a look at all of the betting action ahead of time.
