Jayson Tatum and Stephen Curry did not see their respective odds change from post-Game 1 to post-Game 2, which is not surprising, as both had outstanding showings. There was also no change for Marcus Smart, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, despite Smart and Thompson disappearing from the contest completely.
Jaylen Brown experienced a decent drop, going from +550 after Game 1 to +900 after Game 2. Brown got hot to start the contest, with 13 early points, but finished with just 17 points. Despite putting up only two points and eight rebounds, Al Horford actually saw his odds to win Finals MVP improve from +1400 to +1000.
