PHOENIX – Entering the 2022-23 NBA Playoffs as the fourth seed, the Phoenix Suns are the third favorite to win the Finals with +450 odds. The Milwaukee Bucks are the favorite to win it all with +275 odds.
Legal NBA sportsbooks have combined these two bets by offering playoff specials for betting on the outcome of the NBA Finals. Betting on the Suns to beat the Bucks in the NBA Finals has +1200 odds, with them to beat the Boston Celtics close behind with +1600 odds.
The Suns are locked into their first-round playoff matchup against the LA Clippers, who will start the series with an injured Paul George. The Clippers have gone 12-14 this season when PG13 is out of the lineup. The Suns have gone 37-14 this season when playing as the favorite, and are expected to be favored in most of their playoff games in the West, as the current favorite to finish on top with +200 odds.
Suns Continue Winning Streak With KD?
When playing with Kevin Durant in the lineup, the Suns have gone 8-0 entering the postseason. If this trend continues legal sportsbooks have +10000 odds for the Suns to win the championship without suffering a single loss.
While Phoenix going undefeated seems like an impossible task, the squad has shown in their short time together that they have the chemistry to win it all. If Kevin Durant and Chris Paul can stay healthy throughout the playoffs, the Suns have intriguing odds to go the distance, after falling short in the Finals during the 2020-2021 season.
Betting On Finals MVP Specials For Phoenix
There are special wagers that have the Finals MVP winner attached too. Kevin Durant has the current shortest odds to win the award if the Suns win it all, already having two MVP awards under his belt.
- Suns Win/Durant MVP +800
- Suns Win/Booker MVP +1600
- Suns Win/Paul MVP +5000
- Suns Win/Ayton MVP +10000
Kevin Durant has the most favorable odds to win the Finals MVP award if the Suns win the Finals, as the vet has the most experience in the playoffs. Also, KD has averaged over four more points per game this season than Booker, sitting at 29.1 PPG in 47 games played this season.
