NBA Finals Underdogs That Could Payout Big (Nets +450)

NBA | February 12, 2021

Although the NBA Finals will not start until July, it is NEVER too early to start thinking about who can contend for the 2020-2021 NBA Title! NBA fans and sports bettors alike love playoff basketball. Can any team overtake the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers? Here are 5 underdogs that we absolutely LOVE to potentially win the NBA Finals!
(Note: All odds can be found at

Utah Jazz +1500

Getting 15 to 1 on the Utah Jazz definitely offers value for sports investors! Utah has sprinted out of the gate by winning 80% of it’s first 25 games. In fact, the Jazz are currently (as of 2/12) leading the mighty Lakers by a half game in the Western Conference Standings. Can the Jazz overtake the Lakers as the #1 seed coming out of the West? Probably not, but with powerhouses Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert leading the charge anything is possible. Utah is virtually a lock to make the playoffs and could potentially upset the “Lake Show” in the Western Conference Finals!

Philadelphia 76ers +1200

The Sixers are off to a blazing fast start to the season and currently have posted a 18-7 record. This is good enough for a 2-game lead over the Milwaukee Bucks for 1st place in the Eastern Conference. Center Joel Embiid has been playing like an absolute BEAST down low. Embiid has averaged a robust 29.4 points per game so far this season. If the Sixers can get past the Bucks and the Nets, they could cause serious headaches for whomever they would face in the NBA Finals. The 12 to 1 odds are too good to pass up!

Milwaukee Bucks +800

The Bucks made a wise decision in December by re-signing Giannis Antetokounmpo to the largest extension in NBA history. The deal was worth a whopping 228 million dollars over 5 years! Needless to say, the “Greek Freak” should indeed be set for life financially (LOL)! Giannis has won back-to-back NBA MVP Awards and has formed a dynamic duo with fellow teammate Khris Middleton! Everyone in the East better watch out for the Bucks!

Los Angeles Clippers +800

Most NBA fans assume it will be the Lakers representing the Western Conference in this year’s NBA Finals. Here is a fair warning for all, do NOT sleep on the Clippers! The dominant teams in the NBA are built with two star players on the roster. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are both averaging nearly 25 points per game and form a tandem that could sneak past Lebron and AD! The Clips have also started the season well with a 18-8 overall record.

Brooklyn Nets +450

While we are not as crazy about the 4.50 to 1 odds on this one, we simply cannot ignore the potential that the Nets possess! The Nets scored BIG by getting James Harden from the Rockets and this roster is unbelievably loaded. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden are each ungodly talented. The Nets have started off awfully slow at 15-12 but if this awesome threesome can learn how to play together, the rest of the East better look out!
