The 2021 NBA Finals could come to a close on Tuesday night. The Milwaukee Bucks are back at Fiserv Forum for Game 6 against the Phoenix Suns, leading the best-of-7 series 3-2 with a chance to clinch their first title since 1971. Giannis Antetokounmpo appears to be closing in on his first championship and a Finals MVP award. The Suns have lost three straight and will need to do everything right to force a Game 7 back in the desert.
Giannis enters the game as the favorite to win Finals MVP at -400. CP3 (+675) and Devin Booker (+600) have the best odds behind Giannis from the Suns. Ultimately, if the Bucks win, there’s a very good chance Antetokounmpo is your Finals MVP. If the Suns rally and win it all on Thursday, It’s a toss-up between Booker and CP3 with the young guard entering Game 6 with more of a shot.
