The Arizona Suns’ NBA championship odds decrease following their loss in Game 4.

Suns’ Arizona Sports Betting NBA Title Odds Dive After Game 4 loss
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Phoenix Suns’ odds of winning the NBA championship have dropped on Arizona sports betting apps because guard Devin Booker is sidelined with an injury suffered in Game 2 of the team’s first-round series against New Orleans.

Booker’s missing presence, combined with the team’s lackluster performance in Sunday’s 118-103 loss to the eighth-seeded Pelicans, has resulted in Phoenix dropping from the top spot in NBA title betting odds to a consensus third place on the list.

After their loss on Sunday, the Suns aim to recover and take back the series lead in Game 5, scheduled for 7 p.m. Arizona time on Tuesday on TNT.

The Suns are hoping for better play from Booker’s fellow guards, especially veteran Chris Paul, who only scored four points on 2-of-8 shooting and had a -14 rating in Game 3.

The Suns are heavily favored to win Game 5.

Arizona sports betting sites are confident in the Suns’ chances of winning at home against New Orleans on Tuesday, as they are the clear favorite.

The line for Game 5 in Arizona has been set at -6.5 in favor of the Suns by all four sportsbooks, including BetMGM, Caesars, DraftKings, and FanDuel.

The moneyline odds for the Suns vary between -260 and -275 at different sportsbooks, with FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona listing Phoenix at -270. If you’re looking to place a bet, these are the odds to keep in mind.

Phoenix’s chances of winning the NBA title have decreased.

Within a short span of time, the Suns’ status as the frontrunner for the championship has changed, as they now find themselves trailing behind one of their primary competitors in the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors.

Because of Booker’s uncertain absence and the lackluster performance of the team’s other guards, the Suns have now been ranked as the third favorite team to win the NBA title by all four major sportsbooks.

The odds of Phoenix winning their first NBA championship have shifted from +450 to +550, with BetMGM, Caesars, and DraftKings offering the lower odds and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona offering the higher odds. Just a week ago, all four sportsbooks had the team as the favorite.

Caesars Sportsbook has Golden State listed at +300 and Boston at +380 to win the championship.

On Tuesday night, Monty Williams’ team will strive to recover and reclaim the lead in their first-round series against the Pelicans, with their season on the line.
