The Milwaukee Bucks looked overmatched in the first two games of their second round series against the Brooklyn Nets. Then they earned a gritty Game 3 win. And now they've tied the series at 2-2 following their win in Game 4, which also featured an injury to Kyrie Irving that could impact the outcome of this matchup.

The Bucks' odds to win the NBA Finals on FanDuel Sportsbook are on the rise as a result.

Bucks Finals Odds

Milwaukee owned +1000 odds to win the NBA title even after its Game 3 win. But now the Bucks have jumped to +480 after Sunday's victory. That gives them the fourth-best odds in the league, behind the Nets (+270), Utah Jazz (+300) and Phoenix Suns (+410).

Injuries will be the story of how this Bucks-Nets series plays out heading into Game 5. Irving was seen using crutches and in a walking boot after Game 4, which doesn't bode well for his chances to suit up next game. James Harden also is sidelined with his hamstring injury and seemingly has some work to go before he returns to the floor.

If Milwaukee can capitalize on some key absences, the Bucks could be headed to an Eastern Conference Finals date with either the Philadelphia 76ers or Atlanta Hawks.
