Bettors backing Suns, Bucks to win NBA title
Phoenix Suns outright odds undergo significant shift following Kevin Durant blockbuster
The NFL playoffs have come and gone, which means the NBA playoffs are less than two months away.
The Boston Celtics are the odds-on favourites to win it all with odds of 3.70 at PlayNow.com. The Celtics are looking to get their redemption after blowing a 2-1 series lead to the Golden State Warriors in the 2022 Finals.
This year the Celtics lead the NBA with a .712 win percentage, are second averaging 15.9 three-point field goals per game, and are tied for third in points per game, averaging 117.9.
Jayson Tatum led the NBA playoffs in points and assists last season. Currently, he’s sixth in points per game, averaging 30.6 and eighth in three-point field goals made per game. Despite the Celtics having the highest win percentage, only 5% of bets and 8% of the handle is on the Boston Celtics to win the NBA Championship.
The Eastern Conference holds the top two spots for the Outright Winner Odds. The Milwaukee Bucks were ousted by the Celtics in the East Semi-Finals last season. This season they only trail the Celtics as the betting favourites with odds of 5.00 at PlayNow.com.
Giannis Antetokounmpo is having another MVP-caliber season. He’s first in rebounds per game, averaging 12.3 and third in points per game, with 32.5. The Bucks are defensively sound. They lead the NBA averaging 49.2 rebounds per game and 37.5 defensive rebounds per game. They can get it done on offence, too, as they are fourth in three-pointers made per game averaging 14.3.
More bets have been taken on the Suns to win the championship, but the highest handle is on the Bucks at 33%.
The Suns are the top Western Conference team favoured to win the championship with odds of 5.50 at PlayNow.com. They made the most significant and shocking move at the trade deadline, acquiring Kevin Durant.
Pre-trade deadline, their odds to win it all were 18.00. Since the odds moved to 5.50 at PlayNow.com. a higher share of bettors have started backing the Suns.
They are currently fourth in the Western Conference. A significant factor in the success of this Suns team could be health. Devin Booker, Chris Paul, and KD have all missed over half the season due to injuries, but they will finally take the court together after the All-Star break.
