Milwaukee Bucks Finals Odds
The Milwaukee Bucks NBA Finals odds are favored following their win over the former favorite, the Brooklyn Nets, in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
The Milwaukee Bucks are arguably the strongest team standing right now behind the former league MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks have not been plagued with injuries like some of the other teams remaining have been and surely plan to use that to their advantage.
However, bettors should not be so quick to jump on their odds just yet being that they have struggled in the regular season against both the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers. They lost both games against the Suns and went 1-1 with the Clippers which includes a 14-point loss. As for their matchup with the Hawks, they are riding high as they went 2-1 against them.
Being that Phoenix is favored to make the finals, the Bucks could run into some trouble if they are fully healthy by the time that series comes around. All in all, the Bucks are still the safest team to bet on in these playoffs right now.
Phoenix Suns Finals Odds
The Phoenix Suns have the second shortest NBA odds to win the finals and rightfully so. They currently hold a 1-0 lead on the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Finals being and there should be no surprise here as Kawhi Leonard missed Game 1 and is in jeopardy of missing the remainder of the series with an ACL injury.
Aside from the Suns being favored to win the Western Conference Finals with Kawhi Leonard on the sideline, they are favored with Chris Paul out as well due to COVID-19 protocols. Bettors should not forget that Paul will be returning in time for the NBA Finals if they make it there and will likely come back during this series. With that news alone, the Phoenix Suns have looked like a team on a mission during these playoffs and have gone against all odds to get to where they are today.
That being said, money can surely be made on the Suns to win the Finals and bettors should get in on them before they get any shorter.
Los Angeles Clippers Finals Odds
From the jump, bettors can find more money elsewhere other than on the Clippers to win the Finals. Although they did close out the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference Semifinals without Leonard, statistically speaking, they do not have enough as the other teams remaining in the playoffs.
With Leonard not on the floor, the Clippers have gone 11-9 in total which is less than great. That alone should be an indication that bettors should be looking elsewhere.
Now, if Leonard’s injury gets downplayed as something not as serious and he does return, those that take the chance on them now could be walking around with heavy pockets as Leonard does have extensive experience with the NBA Finals.
Atlanta Hawks Finals Odds
The Atlanta Hawks Cinderella story continues as they knocked off the top seed, Philadelphia 76ers, in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Hawks have been playing nearly perfect basketball throughout the playoffs behind the efforts of Trae Young who is putting up 29.1 ppg and 10.4 apg.
As long as the Hawks continue with their hot hand, no team can contain them. Not to mention, they have an easier road to the Finals than some might think as they are set to go up against the Milwaukee Bucks who are ranked the sixth-worst team in the league in terms of opposing three-point percentages as they allow opposing teams to shoot 38% from deep.
With the way they have been playing, the Hawks will easily be able to execute on the weak three-point defense and could make an NBA Finals appearance. If they do make an appearance, they will match up evenly with the Suns or Clippers and could cash out bettors on some of the longest odds they’ve seen.
