The Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks will be facing off in the second round of the playoffs to see who will represent the Eastern conference in the 2021 NBA Finals. The Nets and Hawks have 1-0 leads in their respective series, but expect the Bucks and 76ers to respond. Here’s a look at the odds each team has to advance to the Finals.
2021 NBA Eastern Conference Champion odds
Brooklyn Nets -155
Milwaukee Bucks +280
Philadelphia 76ers +600
Atlanta Hawks +900
The Nets were favored from the beginning of the postseason to win the championship and despite James Harden’s injury, those odds haven’t shifted much. The same goes for the East winner. The Bucks got a boost after dispatching the Miami Heat in four games, but the 76ers are a decent play if Embiid is healthy. Although they did lose to the Hawks in Game 1, the 76ers are the more talented team and should be able to eventually win the series. The Sixers only have to beat one of Brooklyn and Milwaukee, so they could offer value at +600.
