The Phoenix Suns just won the Western Conference Finals and are now betting favorites to win the 2021 NBA Championship.
The Phoenix Suns are Western Conference champions for the first time since 1993 after defeating the LA Clippers 130-103 in Game 6 on Wednesday night. Today, they are the first team to land a berth in the 2021 NBA Finals. While waiting for the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks, the Suns have an advantage over both teams.
According to WynnBet, the Suns open the 2021 NBA Finals as favorites to win the Larry O’Brien Trophy with odds of -215.
Suns: Phoenix opens as favorite to win NBA Finals
The news doesn’t necessarily come as a shock, considering that when you look at both the Hawks and the Bucks, they are grappling with injuries to key players. Giannis Antetokounmpo suffered hyperextension of his left knee in Game 4, while Trae Young suffers from a deep bone contusion on his right foot. The two stars were excluded from the fifth game on Thursday.
With the uncertainty surrounding Antetokounmpo and Young, you can see why the Suns should win the final. Their stars are in relatively good health heading into the final, with the sole exception of Devin Booker, who has a broken nose that hasn’t forced him to miss a moment.
Chris Paul comes off a historic performance in Game 6, where he scored 41 points while shooting 16 for 24 from the field and 7 for 8 to 3 points.
The Suns only made two trips to the NBA Finals but lost both times. Phoenix is hoping that their third time will be the charm and that they can call themselves NBA champions for the first time in franchise history.
