NBA Finals Odds: Bucks Take Big Leap Following Game 3 Win
The Milwaukee Bucks rode the momentum of the home crowd for a decisive Game 3 victory over the Phoenix Suns by a score of 120-100. The comeback seems a bit more attainable now as Milwaukee only trails 2-1 in the series and have another home game on tap Wednesday night.
The Bucks' Game 3 win has caused their odds to win the NBA championship on FanDuel Sportsbook to take a big leap.
Bucks NBA Championship Odds
Milwaukee's odds were plummeting after back-to-back losses to start the Finals, but they have climbed back up to +200 now. That is a major improvement from the odds the Bucks had entering Game 3 and the team's success has a lot to do with the play of superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Greek Freak has simply taken over this series racking up at least 41 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists in each of the last two contests. He is shooting 62.5% from the field and is also averaging 15.7 free throw attempts per game. As a team, the Bucks bounced back from long range shooting 14-for-36 from beyond the arc (38.9%) in Game 3 compared to the Suns mark of 9-for-31 (29.0%).
The Suns got another veteran performance from point guard Chris Paul (19 points, 9 rebounds) on Sunday night, but young star Devin Booker struggled. He shot 3-for-14 from the field (21.4%) and ended up with just 10 points and 6 rebounds.
The Bucks will look to keep their momentum going as they head into Game 4 as 4.5-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
