NBA Championship Winner – Latest Updates Impacting Odds & Favorites:

  • November 22nd – The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the NBA and have seen their title odds shoot up past the Milwaukee Bucks. Only the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have better odds at this point. The Lakers’ championship odds continue to drop as they have started the season slowly while dealing with myriad injuries. Brooklyn remains the clear favorite despite the absence of star point guard Kyrie Irving.
  • November 11th – The Brooklyn Nets have started the season 8-4 but star point guard Kyrie Irving has still not shown up. The duo of Kevin Durant and James Harden is enough to keep this team the championship favorite but the odds have dropped a bit. The Los Angeles Lakers are only 7-5 on the season and have also seen their odds decrease. Injuries have been an issue for the older roster. The Golden State Warriors are off to a hot start and could soon join the Nets and Lakers as the main favorites.
  • September 29th – The Brooklyn Nets enter the season as the championship favorites, as they boast the talented trio of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. The Los Angeles Lakers are the team to beat in the Western Conference, as Russell Westbrook has joined LeBron James and Anthony Davis in L.A. The defending champion Milwaukee Bucks have the third-best odds, while last year’s Western Conference winner, the Phoenix Suns, have the sixth-best odds to win it all.

About the data

We monitor trends in odds on key markets of interest by tracking a range of UK and international bookmakers. The update frequency varies, but is clearly shown on all our tables and charts. After fetching odds direct from bookies, we convert them to implied probability to make them easier to manage (read more on implied probability and converting from fractional to % probability). We then take the mean average implied probability to get a consensus view across the betting industry. This average implied probability is what we show on our charts and tables.
