It only took five games for TNT Tropang Giga to win the 2021 Philippine Cup over the Magnolia Hotshots, and TNT’s win marks the first time the franchise has won the Philippine Cup in eight years.
The 2021 Philippine Cup was the first time TNT and Magnolia met in the finals since the 2014 Commissioners Cup, where Magnolia won the championship three games to one.
Mikey Williams was named the Finals MVP for his stellar performance in the 2021 Philippine Cup; he is the third rookie to be named MPV in league history. Williams averaged 27.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in the championship series.
Betting On Basketball
Now that the Philippine Cup is over, many Filipinos are still looking for ways to bet on basketball. Luckily for bettors, the NBA is just getting started, and online sportsbooks offer odds on individual games, individual players, and team props.
Betting on the NBA is just like betting on the PBA, except the league is different in how the season is played. The NBA only has one tournament, the NBA Finals. In contrast, there are still 70+ games before the NBA post-season that leave many opportunities to bet on professional baseball.
Current NBA odds to win the Finals are listed below.
- Brooklyn Nets +275
- Los Angeles Lakers +500
- Golden State Warriors +850
- Milwaukee Bucks +850
- Utah Jazz +900
- Miami Heat +1100
- Phoenix Suns +1600
- Philadelphia 76ers +2000
- Atlanta Hawks +2500
- Denver Nuggets +2500
- Los Angeles Clippers +2500
- Chicago Bulls +3300

Where To Bet On Basketball
In the Philippines, there are two options for betting on NBA basketball: domestic sportsbooks and online sportsbooks.
Filipino bettors can wager on NBA games at local sports betting facilities since the NBA is played outside of the Philippines. However, online sportsbooks are often the best choice since they offer PBA odds and odds for other Philippine sports such as MMA, boxing, and more.
Online sportsbooks offer promotions on everything from deposit bonuses to referrals. You can also quickly deposit and withdraw with multiple Filipino-friendly banking options, including cryptocurrency and P2P services like Apple Pay, Cash App, and more.
What Is Next For The PBA
It is not known what the next steps for the PBA will be at this time. Given the current situation in the Philippines with the Coronavirus, it is unlikely that there will be more PBA basketball this year.
