After the Denver Nuggets easily defeated the Miami Heat in Game 3, the Nuggets’ title odds have moved drastically.
Per FOX Sports Research, the Nuggets opened the series as the second-heaviest betting favorites (-500) heading into the NBA Finals in the past 16 seasons, behind only the Golden State Warriors against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017-18 NBA Finals (-1075 to win the series).
After easily winning Game 1, Denver’s title odds got all the way to -1000. Miami’s odds shifted after the Heat won Game 2. But now that Denver is up 2-1, championship odds are once again on the move.
Let’s dive into the current title odds:
