NBA Finals odds

The NBA Finals odds see the season-long futures market whittled down to just two teams. This year the Golden State Warriors return to the Finals after a two-year hiatus and the Boston Celtics turned their season around and dominated the Eastern Conference to make their first appearance since 2009. Heading into Game 6 on Thursday, the Warriors are now a heavier -390 favorite to win the series.

Finals MVP Odds

The NBA Finals MVP goes to the most valuable player in the championship series. Sportsbooks have NBA Finals MVP odds on the board at the start of the NBA Playoffs and shrink that list to the remaining teams as the postseason plays out.

Stephen Curry (-320) has a hold on the top spot of the 2022 NBA Finals MVP odds.
