Boston is now -225 to win the NBA Finals

The Boston Celtics made themselves an important candidate for the NBA Finals with a 116-100 victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game Three on Wednesday night.

The Celtics are now -225 to win the series at BetMGM after going up 2-1 in the series. Boston won Game 1 and Game 3 and needs two wins to win the Larry O’Brien Cup with two of the four remaining potential games remaining in the series due to take place in Boston.

The Warriors opened the series up as a favorite largely due to its popularity and is now +180 to win the series after losing Game 3. Golden State is also holding its breath regarding Steve Curry’s left foot. Curry found himself at the bottom of the scrum for a loose ball with just over four minutes remaining on Wednesday night. The struggle for the ball seemed to hit Curry’s foot and it was clear that he wasn’t close to 100% for the rest of the loss.

Curry said after the match, however, that he would be “just fine” and that he didn’t think he would miss a match. The timing of the injury is important with the fourth game on Friday. Game 4 is the first game in the series that didn’t have two rest days before it.

With the Celtics as the top nominees, Jayson Tatum is the favorite to win the Finals Player of the Year award at +115. Tatum scored 26 points in 23 shots on Wednesday night and scored more than 25 points in each of the last two games. Curry at +200 to win MVP despite his injury and Disability Warriors and Jaylene Brown at +300 to win MVP.

They’re basically those three players or lose to MVP as well. No other player is in better than +3000 to win the prize.
