The 2018 NBA Finals get underway tonight. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will face off for the fourth straight year.

The Warriors have won two of the previous three series against the Cavs. They are heavy favorites this year.

Most pundits expect Golden State to win in four or five games. The Cavs have LeBron, but their roster is not nearly as strong as Golden State's.

OddsShark has put out its prediction for tonight's game. It likes Golden State.

The computer has the Warriors winning by eight.

An OddsShark prediction for Cavs-Warriors Game 1.

LeBron and the Cavs are the underdogs tonight, so a Cleveland win would put the Warriors on notice.

The Cavs and Warriors tip off at 9 p.m. ET tonight from Oracle Arena.

The game will be broadcast on ABC.
