NBA Finals – Your Betting Odds

So the NBA is back and, once we get into the playoffs, things will be heating up quickly. According to the latest NBA betting picks, the Lakers are the current NBA Championship favourites, but they’re far from a sure thing. As we know from last year’s match-up, anything can happen. A lot of these odds vary, and sites like Fox may offer you better or worse lines (depending on who you’re betting for), but always use middle-man betting guides such as BettingTop10 to find the right bet for you. For those who are new to this, the odds are listed in American format, easily converted to fraction format. For example, if you were to place a bet on a team at +200, that would be your payout of a $100 bet. This converts from +200 to 2/1. Without further ado, here’s your complete list of team odds to win the NBA finals.

Real Contenders

These odds, per many betting sites, show the teams with a clear-cut chance of winning it all. You won’t find excellent bets on any of these teams, but you have a great chance of making a little money back. A little. These teams won’t fill the bank for you, clocking in between 2/1 and 3/1, but it’s reasonable to believe they’re somewhat ‘safe’.

  1. Los Angeles Lakers (+200)
  2. Milwaukee Bucks (+280)
  3. Los Angeles Clippers (+300)

Underdogs

This is where the real money gets made. A perfect balance between actually winning and giving a good return, these underdogs all have a real and viable chance to take home the championship, along with a tidy sum for the fans. Odds vary from 12/1 to 20/1.

  1. Boston Celtics (+1200)
  2. Houston Rockets (+1400)
  3. Toronto Raptors (+1600)
  4. Philadelphia 76ers (+2000)

Long Shots

Now we start getting into the big money or, for the unlucky, the wasted money. With the rather severe dropoff in win likelihood, most of these teams stand very little chance of winning a playoff series, let alone the chip. Still, the right pick at the right time could make one in every few hundred bettors very happy indeed. Odds slide in between 30/1 and 250/1.

  1. Denver Nuggets (+3000)
  2. Dallas Mavericks (+4000)
  3. Miami Heat (+4000)
  4. Utah Jazz (+6600)
  5. New Orleans Pelicans (+8000)
  6. Oklahoma City Thunder (+8000)
  7. Portland Trail Blazers (+8000)
  8. Brooklyn Nets (+15000)
  9. Indiana Pacers (+20000)
  10. Memphis Grizzlies (+25000)
