NBA Championship Odds for Favorites in the Beginning of the Playoffs

NBA Championship Odds for Favorites in the Beginning of the Playoffs

The NBA regular season is officially in the books, with 20 teams still alive and hoping to win a championship. Of course, the reality is that only a handful of those teams are in with a legitimate shot at winning it all, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t see any surprises along the way. Who will come out on top when all is said and done? The bookies certainly have some ideas there, so let’s look at the NBA odds for all 20 teams as we prepare for the start of the play-in games on Tuesday night.


Updated 2023 NBA Championship Odds | NBA Lines


Eastern Conference

Milwaukee Bucks (+260)

– The #1 seed in the Eastern Conference ended the season with back-to-back losses, albeit while resting some starters. They are a deserving favorite at the moment.

Boston Celtics (+360)

– The Celtics finished the season just a game off the pace set by the Bucks as they look to make their second straight run to the NBA Finals.

Philadelphia 76ers (+910)

– After a bit of a rough patch, the 76ers closed out the season with 2 straight wins. Might that be a sign that they are gearing up for a deep run?

Cleveland Cavaliers (+4200)

– The odds here show you just how much the bookies think w that we are looking at a 2- or 3-horse race. Can the Cavaliers upset the odds?

New York Knicks (+9500)

– The odds suggest that the Knicks are not really in the mix, but their conference record suggests that they might be an upset waiting to happen.

Brooklyn Nets (+42000)

– There are some play-in teams who have shorter odds than the Nets, which might just tell you all you need to know about their chances.

Play-In Teams

– The chances of any of these 4 teams making a run to the NBA Finals seems highly unlikely, and the odds certainly reflect that. Right now, those odds are Miami Heat (+13000), Atlanta Hawks (+28000), Toronto Raptors (+26000), and Chicago Bulls (+50000)

Western Conference

Denver Nuggets (+900)

– The Nuggets may have won the Western Conference by 2 games, but they are not heading into the playoffs as the favorite to come out of the West.

Memphis Grizzlies (+1925)

– When you look at the odds of the top teams in this conference, you see that the bookies have this race as pretty much wide open.

Sacramento Kings (+5400)

– The Kings have been easily the biggest pleasant surprise of the season, but can that carry over into the playoffs?

Phoenix Suns (+480)

– Their 4th place finish in the West is not really an indication of how good this team is when you consider the injuries they had to deal with all season long.

LA Clippers (+2800)

– The Clippers quietly ended the season on a high, winning 3 in a row to close things out. They might just be a dark horse.

Golden State Warriors (+850)

– It’s surprising to see this team, defending champions or not, in as the favorite to win the West when you look at their road record.

Play-In Teams

– Again, you are potentially throwing money away if you take a play-in team to win it all. The current odds for these teams is LA Lakers (+1625), Minnesota Timberwolves (+20000), New Orleans Pelicans (+30000), and Oklahoma City Thunder (+50000).
