On paper, it’s not a huge surprise that Phoenix is at this point since it was the No. 1 seed. Milwaukee, meanwhile, was one of three favorites in the Eastern Conference and was expected to beat the Hawks in the conference finals, at least by the sportsbooks.
The lines immediately came out across the sports-betting industry right after Milwaukee sealed its Game 6 win over the Hawks on Saturday night.
FanDuel and William Hill already have lines for Game 1 up, with the Suns favored by 5.5 points with a total of 217 points. The same numbers can also be found at William Hill.
