Updated NBA Series Odds, Conference and Title Odds Heading into Weekend

Heading into the weekend, a couple of the NBA Finals favorites have been hit with key injuries, and the odds reflect the impact that may have.

Phoenix and Milwaukee were favored to win their respective conferences before the playoffs began, while the Suns were the overall favorite for the championship. 

Now, with Devin Booker out 2-3 weeks (and possibly more considering it’s a hamstring injury) and Kris Middleton sidelined for at least the remainder of the Bulls series, the Suns and Bucks have seen their odds worsen immensely. 

SportsBetting initially made Milwaukee a -1000 to advance past Round 1 and Phoenix -2500, meaning both had greater than a 90 percent chance to move on. 

Here are the book’s current odds with each series tied 1-1, and the lingering injuries in mind:

Bulls +230

Bucks -275

(Odds imply a 73.3 percent probability Bucks advance)

Pelicans +265

Suns -315

(Odds imply a 75.9 percent probability Suns advance)

Both teams are favored by around 2 points on the road tonight. The Suns would be 5.5- to 6-point favorites with Booker in the lineup while the Bucks would be -4 or -4.5 with Middleton. 

Additionally, the Bucks now have the third-best odds in the East while the Suns have slipped to second in the West behind Golden State.
