With less than two weeks until the resumption of the NBA season, fans are beginning to get their hopes up for live sports to continue across the United States. With plenty of headlines in the mix, Bet Online has released the latest odds for the 2020 NBA Championship.
At the top of the list, the Los Angeles Lakers sit with +240 odds to bring in their first Championship since the 2010 campaign. More specifically, Los Angeles hasn’t reached the playoffs since 2013.
The Los Angeles Clippers sit with +300 odds to win, and remain as powerhouses in the Western Conference. They are led by Kawhi Leonard, who has plenty of individual playoff experience. This season, he is eighth in the NBA in points (27.5) and steals (1.8) per game.
The Milwaukee Bucks, who average a league-high 118.6 points per game, contain +325 odds. The team is led by MVP frontrunner Giannis Anteokounmpo, who is leading the NBA in efficiency rating (34.8).
In a distant fourth, the Houston Rockets (+1200) hope to make some noise within the Western Conference. After a positive COVID-19 test, Russell Westbrook hopes to be healthy by the time the resumption is underway.
Back in the Eastern Conference, the Boston Celtics continue to be written as a +1400 underdog. Despite the odds, the Celtics were the only team with five bubble players listed in ESPN’s Top 50 Players list.
Other contenders included the Philadelphia 76ers (+2000), Toronto Raptors (+2000), and Denver Nuggets (+2500).
