NBA Finals Odds: Bucks Gain Ground on Nets After Forcing Game 7
The Milwaukee Bucks faced elimination heading into Game 6 against the Brooklyn Nets, but they prevailed with a resounding 104-89 win. Now the series heads into an all-important Game 7 at the Barclays Center as both teams hope to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.
After the Nets' gutsy win in Game 5, the Bucks' odds in the NBA Finals odds at FanDuel Sportsbook fell. But now they're closing the gap on Brooklyn before their win-or-go-home matchup.
Bucks Finals Odds
The Bucks owned +750 odds prior to Game 6 while facing a 3-2 series hole. Now they've moved to +440 following Thursday's win. That places Milwaukee third among the remaining playoff teams in the odds to win the title, only trailing the Nets (+220) and Phoenix Suns (+250).
Brooklyn remains the favorite to win the championship even as they too face elimination. However, anything can happen in a Game 7. If the Nets have a repeat performance of Game 6's poor offense, they could be sent packing.
Game 7 is set for Saturday, June 19. Oddsmakers think this one will come down to the wire with Nets being very slight 0.5-point favorites.
