NBA Championship Odds: Celtics Given 70.6% Chance to Win Title After Taking 2-1 Series Lead

Coming into the NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors were favored by a decent margin to win their fourth championship since 2015. Now, with the Celtics up 2-1, the latest NBA Championship odds have flip-flopped. It's officially the Celtics who are massive NBA Finals favorites.

The Golden State Warriors gave it all they had in Game 3, coming back form an early deficit to take a lead in the third quarter. But, Boston held on in front of the home fans and ended up racking up a double-digit win when all was said and done.
