Arrow LeBron has been the underdog 6/7 times in the finals

2007 - Obviously

2011 - Favorite

2012 - Thunders were strong favorites

2013 - Spurs swept WCF and Miami went 7 in the ECF... Betting was on Spurs side... Took a goliath game 6/7 effort from LeBron to win the series

2014 - Obviously

2015 - Obviously

2016 - He'll be the underdog AGAIN (73 win goliath GSW)

Kobe was favorite in all 7/7 finals appearances

MJ was favorite in all 6/6 finals appearances

'12 & '13 were relative tossups, and I'd be surprised if the Heat weren't the betting favorites in 2013. Even with as lopsided as the series turned out, I bet '14 was basically a toss up as well

Nope

2012 were clear favorites

2013 was slightly SAS due to recent form

2014 was clearly SAS

So you mean he chokes the 100% of the times he is the favorite? And that he would be 0 for 7 in Kobe's case and 0 for 6 in Michael's case?

That's harsh man

Nah... Thunder and Spurs were betting favorites both times, I remember.

There should be a way to check?

And 2014 was far from a toss up... SAS were considerable favorites

If you take Lebron's known choking out of the equation, his team was the heavy favorite in 6/7 finals

2007 was the only real underdog year
