The Los Angeles Lakers were the favorite to reach the NBA Finals. But after a 30-point blowout loss to the Phoenix Suns on June 1, the Lakers return home for Game 6 trailing the first round series 3-2. Los Angeles was +390 to win the NBA Championship a week ago with the series tied 1-1, and +700 prior to Game 5. But now the Lakers are +1400 to win the title on the brink of elimination, according to NBA Championship odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Brooklyn Nets (+165) remain the championship favorites as they roll into the second round against the Milwaukee Bucks (+500), who now have the third-lowest odds. The top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers odds' have dropped to +1400 despite leading 3-1 in their first round series due to Joel Embiid's knee injury.

The Utah Jazz (+390) continue to surge as the favorites out of the West to win the NBA title, and the Los Angeles Clippers (+600) remain a major championship contender. The Jazz can close out the Memphis Grizzlies on June 2 while the Clippers play a pivotal Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks with the series tied 2-2.
