We are almost approaching the Conference Finals in both conferences in the NBA, and with none of the matchups decided as of yet, let’s take a look at the updated NBA Conference Championship odds.
NBA Updated Conference Odds for the Final Conference Semifinals Games
Phoenix Suns (+225)
Finishing with the best record in the league, the Suns have a three-level scorer in Devin Booker, a playmaking savant in Chris Paul, and a ton of depth in Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges and others. Booker has proven he can score on the game’s biggest stage, but if CP3 is able to keep his durability, the Suns are by far the favorites to get to the Finals.
Golden State Warriors (+225)
The Warriors go wherever the deadly shooting of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole take them. One night this team is unstoppable. But if the shots don’t fall, this team all of a sudden becomes very vulnerable. Effort is also a concern with this group, as they’re coming off a 39 point loss to a Ja Morant-less Memphis Grizzlies team.
Milwaukee Bucks (+400)
Don’t sleep on the defending champs, as Giannis Antetokounmpo is continuing to prove that he is built for the postseason. Without Khris Middleton, the Bucks are still holding a 3-2 lead over the Boston Celtics at the time of this writing. Jrue Holiday has also really stepped up for his team on both sides of the floor, averaging 21.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.4 steals in the Boston series thus far.
Miami Heat (+550)
The Heat go as far as Jimmy Butler takes them, as one thing you can never question out of Butler is the effort he gives on a night in and night out basis. Bam Adebayo also has the versatile skill set out of a big man that makes him an absolute weapon in the playoffs. With the shooting the Heat have to space out the floor, this team will be a hard out.
Boston Celtics (+1000)
Jayson Tatum has emerged into an absolute superstar, but Jaylen Brown is also a threat to get hot in these games. With Al Horford, Marcus Smart and Grant Williams all being the identity of this defense, they could very well end up in the Finals if they can climb out of the 3-2 hole against Milwaukee.
Philadelphia 76ers (+3000)
If the Sixers had Joel Embiid healthy in Games 1 and 2, they could’ve been in the driver’s seat. While they were able to even up the series at 2-2, the Heat have home court advantage in Game 7 if the Sixers were able to force it that far.
Memphis Grizzlies (+4000)
The Grizzlies have proven that they can be a winning team without Ja Morant, but in the playoffs, when you’re facing other superstars, you need a superstar of your own to help get you going.
Dallas Mavericks (+5000)
Luka Doncic is capable of carrying this team to new heights, but they’re likely to be eliminated by the Suns in the next couple of games.
