NBA Title Odds: Who Are Favorites?

In this article, we will take a look at who is the bookies' favorite to win the NBA altogether. We are about four months into the season, and the first signs of potential winners are already starting to show.

Two Teams From Los Angeles Are Favorites

Unsurprisingly from what we've seen this season, and the qualities that both teams have, L.A. Clippers and L.A. Lakers are listed as the current joint-favorites for the championship. The Lakers and Clippers are going head-to-head for the top spot in the Western Conference, but it looks like the Lakers are in a better position at the moment.

The Lakers are currently top with a record of 40-12. Before the season, they have been tipped as the favorites for the title due to the start quality they have, and they have delivered so far. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been superb, but they can also rely on the scoring potential that Danny Green can bring. They have a quality roster with Dwight Howard, DeMarcus Cousins, Type Kuzma, JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo, and Alex Caruso all very good players.

On the other hand, the Clippers have been good, but it feels like we haven't seen everything they have to offer. They have two giants of the game in Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, both of them can decide games on their own. But they haven't developed as a team just yet, as they have often relied on individual quality this season. They have a record of 37-16, which is the third-best record in the West behind the Lakers.

The Lakers and the Clippers are joint-favorites, with 1xBet offering odds of 3.92 for both teams.

What About Other Contenders?

The next closest contenders are Milwaukee Bucks. The leading team in the East has been flying this season, with a record of 46-7. The Bucks' main diamond is obviously Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has continued his MVP form from last season. The Bucks can become serious title contenders if the Greek Freak can carry on with his great form, but he will need some help from his teammates. Chris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe have got enough quality to help him. They are priced at 3,92 for the title by 1XBet.

The next strongest team for the title, according to 1XBet's odds, is the Philadelphia 76ers. They are priced at 12 for the title at the moment, but they are too unreliable at the moment. This season, they have a record of 31-21, which is a decent campaign, but there are question marks about their credentials for the championship. While they have some quality players in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, it looks like they still need some time.

So who are the outsiders for the title, the teams that can surprise? The next on the odds table are Houston Rockets who have plenty of scoring potential with James Harden and Russell Westbrook. The Rockets are priced at 10. The other potential candidates are the Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, and Boston Celtics.
