Dallas and Luka Doncic bucked the NBA championship favorite Phoenix Suns from the playoffs and threw the odds to win the title into a free-for-all.

The Mavericks ousted the Suns in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, eliminating the 200 favorites from the field and tilting the title picture on its ear.

The Golden State Warriors draw Dallas next and emerged as the new favorites for the title at 130.

Boston is 200 after the Celtics eliminated the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks. The Celtics were 700 to win the NBA title at DraftKings prior to Sunday night's Western Conference chaos.

Golden State is the heavy favorite for several books. After opening the season at 1200, the Warriors are 120 to win the title at FanDuel and BetMGM and 135 at DraftKings, PointsBet and BetRivers.

The Miami Heat, 3500 before the season, are now 420 at FanDuel and third behind the Celtics and Warriors. DraftKings slotted the Heat at 475 compared to 400 at PointsBet.

Doncic and the Mavs remain underdogs at 650 at BetMGM, PointsBet and FanDuel. They are 550 at DraftKings.
