NBA Championship Odds: Celtics, Nuggets Remain Favorites

As we head into the final month of the regular season, several teams have emerged as the

favorites to win the NBA title this spring. Boston and Denver have two of the deepest lineups in

the league but there are several other teams looking to play spoiler as the chase for the Larry

O’Brien Trophy is about to begin.


Boston Celtics (+190)

For the better part of the regular season the Celtics have had the best record in the NBA.

Boston is near the top in several categories including first in rebound, second in points, and

second in 3-point shooting percentage. The Celtics are led by Jayson Tatum who’s averaging

27 points, 8 rebounds and almost 5 assists per game. Boston has made the Eastern

Conference finals in 5 of the last 7 seasons and are poised to make it 6 this spring.

Denver Nuggets (+310)

The Nuggets are the defending champions and have one of the deepest rosters led by Nikola

Jokic who is averaging 26 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists this season and is shooting

58% from the floor. Jokic is on his way to winning his third MVP award and looking for

back-to-back NBA titles. Even though the West is stacked many believe Denver is the team to

beat in the postseason.


Los Angeles Clippers (+700)

Don’t look now but the Los Angeles Clippers are finally becoming the force many thought they

could be. Since mid-November, L.A. has the third best record in the league moving themselves

up the standings. After years of disappointment and flaming out in the playoffs, many believe

this team could finally reach a Final. Kawhi Leonard is the healthiest he’s been in recent years,

and the Big 3 (Leonard, James Harden, Paul George) are coexisting together on the floor. But

none of this matters if there isn’t playoff success.

Milwaukee Bucks (+750)

The Milwaukee Bucks have the second best record in the East despite firing their coach midway

through the season. Doc Rivers takes over and has the Bucks on track for a deep playoff run.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lilliard are still two of the best. For the Bucks, it’ll all come

down to coaching in the playoffs as Rivers has recently been known more for playoff collapses

than success.


Los Angeles Lakers (+3300)

Since winning the In-Season Tournament in December the Lakers have been essentially playing

.500 basketball. But you can’t count out a team with Lebron James and Anthony Davis. As

long as they get in, even as a play-in team, the Lakers still have a chance.

Golden State Warriors (+4000)

It appears the Warriors championship window is starting to close. Steph Curry is 36 and other

key players from their dynasty like Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have transitioned into

more role players. But the priority for Golden State is locking down a spot, which most likely is a

play-in berth.

Miami Heat (+4000)

The Heat are the defending Eastern Conference champions having reached the final as the No.

8 seed last season. They are once again in the mix but have reworked the roster by trading

Kyle Lowry and bringing in Terry Rozier. If they can get hot in the playoffs again, Miami could be

turning up the heat on its rivals.
