Looking at 2021 NBA Finals series final score for Suns vs. Bucks

The series is expected to go the distance, but the oddsmakers think the Suns could also wrap things up quickly.

Phoenix Suns v Milwaukee Bucks

The Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks face off in the 2021 NBA Finals to determine a champion for the 2020-21 season. The Suns took down the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers on the path to the Finals while the Bucks eliminated the Brooklyn Nets, considered heavy favorites to win the title.

The Suns are favored to win the series at -182, while the Bucks are significant underdogs at +152 due to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s injury. Let’s take a look at the series correct score odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

PHO 4-3 +400

MIL 4-2 +500
MIL 4-3 +550
PHO 4-0 +800
MIL 4-1 +800
MIL 4-0 +1600

The Suns are favored to win the series 4-3, but the next best possibility according to the oddsmakers is the Suns winning 4-1. That is a sizable swing, but is likely due to the feeling Phoenix will close out a series win on its home floor. The series ending in six games checks in at third, regardless of which team is winning Game 6.

The oddsmakers do not foresee a sweep for either team. The Suns winning 4-0 is +800 while the Bucks winning 4-0 checks in last at +1600

It’s telling that the top three options are Phoenix winning the series regardless of number of games. The Suns are big favorites but that could change depending on Antetokounmpo’s health status. If bettors believe the Greek Freak will return for the Finals at some point, these may be the best value odds for a Milwaukee victory.
