With the 2021 NBA Playoffs in full swing, oddsmakers are keying in on the early first round performances from some of the top dogs. That includes the Utah Jazz, who have looked close to dominant in their first round matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies.

After dropping a close battle in Game 1, the Jazz fired off three straight wins to take a commanding 3-1 series win. The oddsmakers are noticing this dominant stretch of games as Utah's NBA championship odds have surged from +700 last week to just +400 now, according to the latest NBA odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. That marks the second-best odds across the entire playoff field.

The Brooklyn Nets still own a slight edge as current favorites with their championship odds set at +175. Brooklyn's also out to a dominant 3-1 start over the No. 7 seed Boston Celtics.

Only one team, the No. 3 Milwaukee Bucks swept through the first round. Milwaukee's seen their odds jump to +500 from +600 a week ago. Another big change in the odds is the slipping of the Los Angeles Lakers (now +700) after splitting their first four games with the Phoenix Suns and dealing with a potential injury to Anthony Davis.

Here's a look at the updated NBA Championship odds.
