We still have many months to go in the current NBA season.
In many ways, it’s like 2022-23 has just gotten started.
However, some things are already clear about this year, including which teams are succeeding and which are floundering.
And that is giving the betting markets an idea of who they believe will win the whole season and become the newest NBA champions.
Current odds to win the NBA Championship 🏆
+1900: Cavaliers, Pelicans
— NBABet (@nbabet) December 14, 2022
The current odds-on favorites to win the NBA championship right now are the Boston Celtics, at +340.
Following them are the Milwaukee Bucks at +480, the Phoenix Suns with +700, the Golden State Warriors with +750, and the Los Angeles Clippers with +950.
This list isn’t that shocking, most people think that the Celtics will go all the way and actually win this season.
But there are a few surprising choices the further down the list you travel.
Seeing Into The Future
The Celtics at +340 make sense, meaning they have the best chance to win the Finals.
It’s also not a shock to see the Bucks doing so well too.
It is a bit interesting that the Warriors are at +750, not too far from the front of the pack.
The team is currently not playing as well as they were last season and they will need a big rebound in order to make it through the playoffs.
And how about the Miami Heat?
They’re nowhere near the top of the list but they’re not as far down as some people would think.
Surely, the Philadelphia 76ers are now happy to see their team with just +2,400.
All in all, there is a lot to look at and ponder when examining this list.
It’ll be some time before we know how accurate it is.
