Fact Checked by Young Ruth

During a weekend, the Phoenix Suns’ odds of winning the NBA championship dropped drastically on Arizona sports betting apps, transitioning from favorable to unfavorable.

The Suns’ strong start in the Western Conference Semifinals against the Dallas Mavericks was halted when they lost their lead in Texas after dominating the first two games with a 27-point margin.

Phoenix lost by 9 points in the first game and by 10 points in the second game, leaving the best-of-seven series tied before Game 5 on Tuesday.

The Suns and Mavericks will go head-to-head at the Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Arizona time, airing live on TNT.
