The favourite: Boston Celtics (-1000)

Could this finally be the year for the Celtics?

Boston has been to the Eastern Conference finals in five of the past seven years. If there was such a thing as a near-miss dynasty, this team would fit the description.

Led by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the Celtics are up 2-0 in the series and are playing their best basketball at the right time.

Home-court advantage matters for the Celtics, who were an NBA-best 43-6 at TD Garden this season with a +14.4 average point differential heading into the Finals.

They've won by an average of 12.5 points in their first two home games.

If they can steal a game in Dallas, this could be wrapped up sooner than most would've imagined.

The underdog: Dallas Mavericks (+600)

Dallas is in deep water after two games.

Luka Doncic has scored 30-plus points in both contests but needs more support if the Mavs are to have any chance of coming back.

Kyrie Irving has been disappointing so far, scoring just 28 total points across both games on 13-for-37 shooting.

The next highest scorer on the team is PJ Washington, who has just 33 points total. Dallas made moves to build a strong team around Doncic but it hasn't made a difference in this series so far.

Doncic's Mavs opened as a slight home favourite for Game 3.
