On Thursday night, basketball fans will watch as Cavs vs. Warriors live streaming online, and televised game coverage arrives for the NBA Finals. It's Game 1 of the fourth installment in the epic rivalry of these two teams. So far, Golden State has won two titles, with LeBron willing the Cavs to one just a couple seasons ago. The Cleveland superstar will try to do it again, as his supporting cast has been said to be lacking by many fans and analysts. Here's the latest game preview with matchup odds, start time, TV channel, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Warriors live stream feeds.

Game 1 preview & odds

In an earlier report via ESPN, it was noted that the Golden State Warriors are heavy favorites to take Game 1 on their home court floor.

The Warriors were favored by as much as 12.5 points, giving them the largest point spread for an NBA Finals [VIDEO] game since the 1991 Chicago Bulls. The Warriors are also heavy favorites to win the series, as they were priced at -1000 early on ahead of Game 1.

The spread and odds seem to make sense, just based on the fact that Golden State looks to be firing on all cylinders when they need to and are pretty much at full strength. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant have all seemed sharp in the team's past two wins over the Houston Rockets. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been banged up and relying mostly on their superstar.

LeBron James helped guide the team to back-to-back wins over the Boston Celtics to win the Eastern Conference Finals in seven games.

However, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love was absent from Game 7 due to being in the concussion protocol. The All-Star forward may be sidelined yet again for Game 1, leaving LeBron James [VIDEO] to shoulder the load, and hope someone else might step up to help out.

The Odds Shark website shows moneyline prices of -800 to -1000 for the favored Warriors, and +500 to +700 for the underdog Cavaliers. The over/under points total is currently at 214.5 points for the complete game in Oakland.
