Listed below are the updated Las Vegas odds to win the NBA Championship. This seemed like a good point to look at the odds, as a number of teams are right around the halfway point of the season (41 games).

As you might expect given what we have seen so far, the Golden State Warriors (38-4) are the favorites to win it all at +150, followed by the San Antonio Spurs (36-6) at +240 and the Cleveland Cavaliers (28-11) at +325. The only other team that has odds of 10 to 1 or better are Oklahoma City Thunder (30-12) at +900.

Now that we are in the stretch run of the 2015-16 NBA campaign, we will be updating this page more frequently over the rest of the season. The next update will come at the All-Star Break.

The odds on this page are money lines.  It’s pretty easy to understand, it basically means if the number is positive you have to wager $100 to win that amount.  If the number is negative you have to bet that amount to win $100.For example, if the odds are -300 then you have to bet $300 to win $100.  If the odds are +200 then a $100 bet would win you $200.

So which teams have the best odds of making it through the playoffs and to the NBA Finals?  You can have Vegas help you to figure that out below.  These are the teams that are most likely to win each conference.

The odds above are all current, but we like to take a look at how they may have changed over time.  So, we are going to keep an archived list down below.

We are going to update the list following key dates like:

  • Immediately after the previous NBA Finals
  • After key free agent signings
  • Right before the season
  • Christmas
  • All Star Break
  • Before Each Playoff Series Begins

It’s no surprise that the Cleveland Cavs are one of the favorites to win the NBA Finals in 2015-16.  As long as they have LeBron James they will continue to be a contender.

The San Antonio Spurs had the best offseason of any team in the league.  Once again they should be a force to be reckoned with in the NBA.

Golden State was too tough for anyone to beat last season and it looks like they have a good chance to make a run again.

The Oklahoma City Thunder is a team that you shouldn’t sleep on.  They made it to the Finals back in the 2011-12 season but have dealt with some injury issues the last couple of seasons.  If Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant can stay healthy then it’s as good of a 1-2 punch as there is in this league.
