NBA Championship Odds: Celtics Given 44% Chance to Win the NBA Finals After Game 4 Loss

After winning Game 3, the Celtics held over a 70% chance to win the title. The Game 4 loss dropped the Celtics chances of winning by just over 25% to 44% chance. Going up 3-1 would have been huge, but it's a very tough blow to let the Warriors tie up the series heading back to San Francisco.

The Celtics had the game where they wanted it, as they avoided any huge runs from Golden State and the game was close. Instead of taking a double-digit lead in the finals minutes, like Game 3, they instead gave up a double digit deficit and lost a huge game. 

As we’ve seen, the Celtics can win without any stacked wins, just back and forth all series, but if they were going to stack any wins, those would have been some great ones to stack. Now the Celtics will have to either win a big game in San Francisco or try and survive a Game 6 and 7 both.

The chances have flipped out of the Celtics favor, but as we can see, one game can make a huge difference and the Cetlics can regain the chances in no time. Game 5 will be a huge game, and if the Celtics can take a series lead on a road game, they’ll easily be the favorites going back to Boston for Game 6. 

After the Game 4 loss, the Celtics now own just +125 odds after being huge favorites after the Game 3 win.
