2021 NBA Playoffs: Series Prices

The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns will play for the 2021 NBA Championship.

It’s the best time of the year to be a basketball fan. Two teams are left competing for the 2021 NBA championship in the quest to win the title and oddsmakers have wasted no time posting NBA Finals series prices.

The best basketball betting sites are just as pumped as we are to have NBA postseason basketball and have been updating 2021 playoff series prices daily. Bettors can wager on these types of props right up until the final buzzer in the NBA Finals.

Here at Odds Shark, we’ll be adding series props and updating odds and notes through the Finals. 

If you’re new to betting basketball, there are some very important betting resources below for you to check out to assist you in your handicapping:

Bucks vs Suns Series Price
WinnerOpening Odds
Milwaukee Bucks+150
Phoenix Suns-170

Odds as of July 4 at Bovada

  • The Suns went 2-0 against the Bucks in 2021.
  • Both matchups this season were decided by one point, including a 128-127 overtime win for Phoenix.
  • Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and Phoenix’s Deandre Ayton were ranked first and third, respectively, in rebounds per game going into the NBA Finals.

Best Bet: Phoenix -170

The Milwaukee Bucks had two impressive wins over the Atlanta Hawks in Games 5 and 6 of their Eastern Conference final without their best player. Giannis Antetokounmpo hyperextended his knee in Game 4, and the rest of the team stepped up and delivered a Finals appearance for Milwaukee for the first time since 1974. 

However, when it comes to deciding who to bet on in this series, it is hard to see this Bucks team having continued success without their superstar. The rested Phoenix Suns will have been off for almost a week when the Finals commence, and the combo of Chris Paul and Devin Booker present a much stiffer test than what the Hawks had to offer.

Until we see Giannis back on the floor and looking healthy, the Suns are the pick to win the NBA championship in 2021.

How To Read NBA Series Prices Odds

At any sportsbook offering NBA series prices odds, you’ll see the prop laid out like this:

  • Boston Celtics -440
  • Philadelphia 76ers +320

Similar to a moneyline bet, where favorites are designated with the minus sign (-), in this case the Boston Celtics are the overwhelming favorite, which means you’ll need to bet more to increase your potential return of profit.

For example, let’s say you think the Celtics are going to win the series over the Sixers. If you bet $100 on Boston, you’d only net a return of $122.73 – your $100 is returned along with $22.73 in profit. Large favorites come with less risk but that means you need to invest more to see a larger profit.

However, let’s say you think the Sixers are going to win the series. If you bet $100 and it hits, you’d get a return of $420 – the original $100 investment is returned along with a nice profit of $320. However, with underdogs comes larger risk as the probability of them winning is low, hence the larger reward.
