The Boston Celtics took a commanding 2-0 series lead Sunday night in a 105-98 win and now are massive favorites to capture the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy at -1000 according to FanDuel.

Boston opened at -225 to win the title before Game 1 and was -420 entering Game 2. Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks went from +188 to +330 to now +660. However, while they are massive underdogs to win the series, Dallas opened as the favorite to win a pivotal Game 3.

As far as the MVP race goes, Jrue Holiday has entered the conversation following an epic Game 2 performance. The Celtics traded a pair of first-round picks along with Malcolm Brogdon and Robert Williams III to the Portland Trailblazers for the 15-year veteran shortly before the season began — and they certainly received a return on their investment. That was never more apparent than Sunday night, when Holiday had 26 points on 75% shooting with 11 rebounds, which were both team highs. As a result, he went from +14000 to +900 to win MVP.

Jayson Tatum is still favored after another solid performance, but it's firmly an open race as he's now +100 after opening at -125 and then -105 after Game 1. Jaylen Brown has seen his odds go from +700 to +185 after two strong games while Luka Dončić is now a distant third at +650 with Dallas in a 2-0 hole. Finally, Kristaps Porziņģis' odds came crashing back down to Earth. He was +550 immediately after his dominant Game 1 showing, but is now +5000.
