The Phoenix Suns are making their first appearance in the NBA Finals since 1992-93 behind a young core set up to contend for many years and a star veteran point guard looking to secure the elusive championship. The Suns have not faced much resistance in the postseason and caught some fortunate breaks with injuries to other stars, but no one in Phoenix is going to discount what’s been done during this run.

Here are the Finals MVP odds for the Suns players, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

2021 NBA Finals MVP odds: Phoenix Suns

Devin Booker +175
Chris Paul +200
Deandre Ayton +2200
Mikal Bridges +10000

Our pick: Chris Paul

In the event the Suns win the championship, Booker and Ayton are likely going to be scoring leaders. However, the media votes for Finals MVP and Paul is one of those NBA personalities people like to reward. He’ll also have the numbers to back up the honor if the Suns win.
