The NBA Playoffs have been extremely exciting for many different reasons, both on and off the court. Guard play has been especially noteworthy, with players completely taking over games, even leading to upsets. This has led to a massive shakeup in the odds to win the NBA Championship.

The Los Angeles Clippers continue to be the favorites to win it all, at +260, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They survived a scare in the first round against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Moving on led to a slight improvement in their odds. Also improving slightly were the Los Angeles Lakers, who now sit at +300.

After dropping Game 1 of their second-round series against the Miami Heat, the Milwaukee Bucks dropped to +350 odds to win it all, but the Heat saw a big improvement. They now have +1300 odds to win the NBA Finals, good for fifth-best.

The Boston Celtics have taken a commanding 2-0 lead in their second-round series against the Toronto Raptors. They improved to +500 odds to win the NBA Finals, holding the fourth-best odds, meanwhile, the Raptors have fallen to +1900.

With the Nuggets winning a thrilling seven-game series against the Utah Jazz, Denver's odds stand at +3600, with Oklahoma City (+6500) and Houston (+1500) set for Game 7 on Wednesday night.
