The culmination of the basketball postseason is the NBA Finals, where the top team from the Eastern Conference battles the top team from the Western Conference for the coveted Larry O’Brien Trophy.

NBA Finals odds

The NBA Finals odds see the season-long futures market whittled down to just two teams. The Milwaukee Bucks were a +130 underdog on the NBA championship odds board entering the NBA Finals and slipped as far as +400, but went on to beat the Phoenix Suns in six games.

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.

Suns guards Chris Paul and Devin Booker were the early favorites for Finals MVP, but Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo hoisted the NBA Finals MVP trophy after sitting at +350 before the series due to an injury.

Where to watch

The NBA Finals will aired once again on ABC in the United States and on TSN in Canada.
