NBA Odds & Analysis – Finals Possible Matchups
Milwaukee Bucks vs LA Lakers +220
While NBA fans everywhere wish the Lakers and Clippers could meet in the finals, that’s unfortunately not a possibility with both teams being in the same conference. Nevertheless, the Bucks versus the Lakers would be highly entertaining. Milwaukee has the league’s top offense (118.6 ppg) and reigning MVP in superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (30.9 pg). The Lakers will counter with superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis. These two split their pair of regular season meetings with each winning at home.
Boston Celtics vs LA Lakers +1450
If the Bucks don’t make it to the NBA Finals. I think most hoopsheads would like nothing better than to see a dangerous Boston Celtics squad meet LeBron and company in the finals. Boston recorded an emphatic 139-107 home win in this historic and lengthy rivalry on January 20 before the Lakers got their revenge by getting a narrow 114-112 home win a month later. If you remember Boston’s run to the Eastern Conference Finals two years ago and you don’t remember Jayson Tatum’s hellacious dunk on LeBron James in Game 7, here it is – and here’s hoping for more!
Milwaukee Bucks vs LA Clippers +300
I’m actually expecting these two teams to meet in the NBA Finals. The Bucks are rock-solid at both ends of the floor, but they’re going to need more contributions from everyone outside of Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Clippers are loaded with veteran talent and have the most loaded roster in the league. Yes, they’ve got five fewer wins than the Lakers, but right now, they’re completely healthy and hungry to prove they are the best team in the league.
Toronto Raptors vs LA Clippers +2700
With the second most victories in the East, defending champion Toronto has far exceeded expectations despite losing Kawhi Leonard in free agency. The Raptors play a solid brand of basketball at both ends of the floor and have replaced Leonard’s contributions with now, all-star forward Pascal Siakim (23.6 ppg) and sweet-shooting point guard Fred VanVleet (17.6 ppg). Toronto leads the league in fewest points allowed (106.5 ppg) and that kind of defense means they’ll have a chance against anyone, even if the Clippers did win both regular season meetings.
Philadelphia 76ers vs Denver Nuggets +20000
Philadelphia has been wildly inconsistent this season in going 29-2 at home and 10-24 on the road. Still, Philadelphia has a pair of legitimate stars in Joel Embiid (23.4 ppg) and Ben Simmons (16.7 ppg) and another all-star talent in Tobias Harris (19.4 ppg). I’d love to see the contrasting styles of Embiid and Nuggets all-star center Nikola Jokic (20.2 ppg). These two split their two regular season meetings with each winning at home.
