NBA Championship Betting Odds

The NBA futures markets are made available pretty much straight after the previous season at all the best NBA betting sites. The first of these markets to go live is the NBA Championship Winner market, and it’s a simple case of predicting which team will be crowned NBA champions after the NBA Finals.

The leading NBA betting apps will stipulate whether you are betting on the winner of the regular season or whether this market will include the playoffs, with sportsbooks offering customers the chance to bet win only on a team or alternatively go for an each-way bet.

This means each-way betting can actually land a profit if you back a team that reaches the NBA Finals no matter the outcome. 

The Finals sees the Western champion go up against the Eastern champion in a first-to-four showdown, and it’s made all the more interesting if you’ve got a team you follow along with at betting sites.

Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and LA Clippers Among 22-23 Favorites

While the market is always subject to change as the regular season goes on, there are early favorites with betting apps in the preseason.

Last season’s beaten finalists, the Boston Celtics, have been seen as the early team to beat in the league. They produced a great, and somewhat unexpected, run to the final in the 2022 NBA Finals and perhaps they are capable of going one better in the not-too-distant future.

However, some betting customers will instead look to wager on a team with a more solid track record, and none have a better one than the Golden State Warriors. There is perhaps no stronger NBA lineup than the starting five for the Warriors. Between 2015-2022, the Warriors have reached the NBA Finals on six separate occasions winning four championships, including this past season.

The LA Clippers are well respected in the NBA Futures betting market, although they have never been to the NBA Finals. The return of Kawhi Leonard makes them top of the NBA picks for many people this season. The Milwaukee Bucks were crowned the 2021 champions, which rightfully makes Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co. one of the favorites.
