Ups and Downs in the NBA Finals MVP Run
This year's NBA Finals have been very entertaining with Drake trolling people from the sideline and Raptors making their first-ever appearance.
The series between Toronto Raptors and, the two-times defending champions, Golden State Warriors seemed to be a closed case before they started. Warriors have been favourite to win by a huge margin and secure the three-peat. Raptors, led by the superstar Kawhi Leonard, haven't stopped believing in themselves and proved the world wrong.
The dominating 3-1 lead was achieved by Toronto, which flipped the NBA Finals MVP betting upside-down. Stephen Curry (GSW) who has never won the Finals MVP title was the front runner among all online bookmakers, with the odds of 2.10 (11/10) before the Game 1, along with injured Kevin Durant (GSW), the two-times NBA Finals MVP, who had 16.00 (15/1).
The situation was changed after Toronto's win in Game 4. Making, a then 3.75 (11/4) Kawhi Leonard a new front runner with 1.18 (2/11) odds to win the title. Curry, in return, dropped to 6/1 and Durant, who hasn't yet played in a series, to 21.00 (20/1).
Who will get the title? Let's find out in the upcoming Game 5!
