The Los Angeles Lakers (+250), Los Angeles Clippers (+600) and Milwaukee Bucks (+700) are still among the top four favorites to win the 2021 NBA Finals on BetMGM. However, the Clippers and Bucks have dropped in standing.

While the Lakers are still the betting favorite to win the NBA Finals on BetMGM, the Brooklyn Nets are now listed as the No. 2 team for this future on the sportsbook. The Nets’ odds to win the 2021 NBA Finals on BetMGM are now +300 following the report of the Houston Rockets trading James Harden to Brooklyn.

Of course, this means the Nets are now the betting favorite to win the Eastern Conference this year at +125 as the Bucks (+350) bump back to No. 2 on BetMGM.

There’s also a list of James Harden specials on BetMGM, including:

  • To score 60-plus points in an 2021 regular season game: +225

  • Record a double-double in his first Nets appearance: -110

  • Score 30-plus points in his first Nets appearance: +120
