NBA Championship Odds & Betting Lines
As soon as an NBA champion is officially in the books, odds on the next NBA Champion are released. The betting odds for the NBA Championship get adjusted during the year, depending on the performance of teams. For example, a league's top team may be +100 to win the championship. That means a $100 wager would pay $100 profit. On the other hand, a longshot might be +4000, indicating that oddmakers are not expecting that team to win and a $100 bet would pay $4,000.
Now that the action is about to get ongoing, let’s take a look at the current NBA Championship odds. Despite losing last year's championship against the Cleveland Cavs, the Golden State Warriors command the future odds. Golden State is followed closely by the Cavaliers, who have the second best odds of winning title. The San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are next on the list.
