The NBA Finals took on new life on Wednesday night after the Milwaukee Bucks knotted the series up at two games apiece. Once again, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo played a huge role in this Game 4 victory, pouring in 26 points, 14 rebounds and one game-saving block.

After another strong performance from the best player in this series, Antetokounmpo has overtaken Chris Paul as the leading-favorite to win Finals MVP on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Finals MVP Odds

Giannis' odds come in at +110 to win NBA Finals MVP following the crucial Game 4 victory. He sits closely ahead of Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul (+170), who has been relatively quiet since the series shifted to Milwaukee.

The other Suns guard, Devin Booker, gave it his all in the Game 4 loss after going off for 42 points on 17-for-28 shooting from the field. As a result, Booker's odds for NBA Finals MVP have skyrocketed to +240.

If the Bucks hope to take their first series lead in the 2021 NBA Finals, and eventually hoist the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, they'll need Antetokounmpo to remain in top form. Through four games, the superstar forward is averaging 32.3 points, 14 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.5 blocks per game.

Currently, the Bucks remain a slight underdog to win the series with their +125 odds compared to the Suns' -145 odds. Early on, the Bucks are 4-point underdogs heading into Game 5 in Phoenix, Ariz.
