ORLANDO — As the NBA Conference Finals continue, the odds to win the NBA Finals have been continuously shifting.

Although the odds have been shifting, online sportsbooks continue to view the Los Angeles Lakers as heavy favorites to win the championship.

Odds To Win The NBA Championship

  • Los Angeles Lakers -350
  • Miami Heat +550
  • Boston Celtics +700
  • Denver Nuggets +3300

With NBA betting sites continuing to heavily favor the Lakers, one question has risen: Is this year’s NBA Championship is the Lakers to lose?

In short, it certainly is the Lakers to lose as they are clearly the top dog in these Conference Finals. They have the best regular-season record out of all four teams and have also defeated all four teams multiple times in the regular season as well.

Not to mention they have arguably one of the greatest players to ever live in LeBron James along with an MVP caliber player in Anthony Davis. One thing that bettors should take note of is that anytime LeBron James is in the playoffs, the championship is his to lose.

The Lakers championship odds have shifted drastically since the conference finals have started. They opened up as the favorites with -225 odds and have since moved even closer to -350 after taking a 2-0 lead on the Denver Nuggets.

Although the Nuggets have come back from being down in the first and second round already, this would be their toughest comeback yet.

Miami Heat Vs. Boston Celtics

The Miami Heat are second on the odds board and rightfully so. Their odds have shifted further since the start of the conference finals being that not only the Lakers are looking to take down anything in their way but also because they dropped Game 3 after being up 2-0.

The Heat are still full of surprises and could pull off the win over the Celtics and also give the Lakers a run for their money.

As for the Boston Celtics, they have notched their first win in the Conference Finals and are looking to keep that momentum going but their odds have shifted as well. Boston’s odds have shifted further given the Lakers run as well as the 2-1 hole that they are currently in. Their odds have the potential to shift closer if they can grab another win against the Heat.

Now that the Celtics have Gordan Hayward in the lineup, that could be enough to pull of the comeback against the Heat and surprise NBA bettors in the Finals.

Who Will Win The Finals MVP?

Looking at who will win the Finals MVP, it is no surprise that the top two names on the odds board are LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Odds To Win 2020 NBA Finals MVP

  • LeBron James -125
  • Anthony Davis +225
  • Jimmy Butler +1200
  • Jayson Tatum +1400
  • Bam Adebayo +2200
  • Goran Dragić +2600
  • Kemba Walker +4000
  • Jaylen Brown +5000
  • Marcus Smart +7000
  • Nikola Jokić +8000
  • Gordon Hayward +10000
  • Kyle Kuzma +10000
  • Tyler Herro +10000
  • Jamal Murray +10000
  • Duncan Robinson +30000
  • Michael Porter Jr. +100000

James and Davis are the clear top-two candidates to win the Finals MVP as they are the leaders of the Los Angeles Lakers. LeBron, however, has really turned on the jets in these playoffs and will likely carry that into the finals.

One thing to notice is that any Nuggets player that is on the odds board all have longshot odds being that they are currently sitting at 0-2 with the Lakers and odds are favoring that they will not make it out.

As for the remaining players, Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic would be great bets to make as the Heat have been playing against the odds since the start of the second round.

Both Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic have been paying exceptional basketball being that Dragic is leading the team in scoring in the Eastern Conference Finals with 21.7 ppg and Butler seems to do it all for the Heat with 17 ppg, 5.7 rpg and 3.7 apg. Either one of them would offer a great payout.

Looking at Jayson Tatum, this would be a solid bet to make as well, being that he is the top player on the Celtics has been nothing short of spectacular thus far in these playoffs as he has averaged 25.3 ppg in the Eastern Conference Finals.
