The NBA Finals are finally here. The Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks will square off in Game 1 on Tuesday as one team looks to gain a 1-0 series lead. With plenty of high-level talent on both sides, the battle for Finals MVP should be just as intense as the title chase.

However, it's veteran Suns point guard Chris Paul that looks like the frontrunner heading into Game 1. Paul is the current favorite at +170 odds to win NBA Finals MVP, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The "Point God" has done it all for Phoenix, averaging 18.1 points, 8.7 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game. However, Suns teammate Devin Booker isn't far behind at +270. Booker's prolific scoring abilities (27.0 PPG in the playoffs) could be what help him land MVP honors.

Then there's Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo at +350. The two-time league MVP is looking to add a Finals Most Valuable Player to his trophy case, although his knee injury will play a huge factor in deciding this year's title.
