Antetokounmpo has seen his odds rise from +650 in our last tracker to +350.
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic remains the frontrunner, seeing his odds move up to +300. Doncic has been carrying the load for the Mavericks, averaging 35.2 points, 10.8 rebounds and 9.4 assists per game entering Sunday’s contest.
The Phoenix Suns appear to have put last season’s Game 7 debacle behind them, jumping out to a 4-1 record which included a win over the Mavs in the opener.
