NBA Finals 2024 Preview

In the NHL, the Dallas Stars were defeated in the Western Conference Finals by the Edmonton Oilers, but Texas still has the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals 2024. They are down two games to none in the series, but they’ll now move to Dallas for the next two meetings.

NBA Finals 2024 Odds to Win

The odds have always favored the Celtics, and that doesn’t look to change anytime soon. Betting on Game 3 should be interesting as the venue changes to American Airlines Center in Dallas. Keep your limits in because this is the make or break point for the Mavs.

Celtics: -230 -800
Mavericks: +180 +550
Celtics win 4-1: +205 None

NBA Finals MVP Odds

The odds have shifted a little since the Finals started.

Player Odds
Jayson Tatum +110
Jaylen Brown +180
Luka Doncic +650
Jrue Holiday +750
Kristaps Porzingis +4000
Derrick White +5000
Kyrie Irving +8000


Luka Doncic

Before this series began, Doncic was at +190, Jaylen Brown at +550, and Jayson Tatum at -135. Because Doncic is still piling on the points against a stacked team, you would think he would see his odds getting shorter, not longer. Tatum is the best player on a powerhouse team, while Doncic is the best player on a team that couldn’t have made it this far without him. Plus, he’s been dealing with injuries. He had 30 points and 10 rebounds in the first game, followed by a triple-double in Game 2. Who deserves the MVP more?

Jayson Tatum

He’s been the favorite to win the MVP since the playoffs began. But it was teammate Jaylen Brown who won the Eastern Conference MVP award. Tatum had a slow start in Game 1, which is probably why Brown overtook Doncic for the second spot. If Boston wins this series, Doncic will likely be out of the picture for the award, but there will still be the battle between Tatum and Brown.

Jaylen Brown

His efficiency is better than Tatum’s, as he averages 24.6 points on 54.3% shooting in the Finals. But he still has a problem with his free throws, only making those attempts 63.6% of the time.

Kyrie Irving

In the two games in Boston, Kyrie Irving has had a disappointing shooting percentage (35.1%) and will have to up his game if the Mavs want a shot at beating the Celtics. Perhaps he was distracted by the crowd of his old team, where he played from 2017 to 2019. This is his fourth NBA Finals, and so far, he’s averaging 25.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 4.2 assists. I don’t see him overtaking the other players for MVP, but if he shines in the next two games in Dallas, there could be an upset.

Kristaps Porzingis

Boston’s Porzingis surprised everyone with his performance after missing over a month of play with a calf injury. He had 20 points in Game 1 but only 12 in Game 2. He played for just over 20 minutes each outing but will undoubtedly receive more court time once he gets his cardio back.

NBA Finals Game 3 Odds

The first game was all Boston as they ran over Dallas 107-89, but Game 2 was much closer. The Celtics were only two points shy of their total in Game 1 (105 vs. 107), but Dallas added nine points over their first game (98 vs. 89). The Mavs got a record-setting first half from Doncic, who produced 23 of his 32 points in the first half. If he had more support, they could have come home with the series even, 1-1.

Game 3 is this Wednesday, June 12, at 8:30 pm ET. This one is crucial for the Mavericks because if they lose, it will be almost impossible to mount a comeback unless half the Celtics take a holiday.

Moneyline: Boston: +104, Dallas: -122
Spread: Boston: +1.5 (-108), Dallas: -1.5 (-112)
Total: Over/Under 213 (-110/-110)

The last two games were Under, and Boston’s total score has remained virtually the same in the previous two games. Dallas has to get over the 100 hump to go Over.
