Thinking about placing a wager on who is going to take home the NBA Finals this year? You have come to the right place. Each year I take a detailed look at the future odds for every team to win the championship. Not only does this page look at who will win it all, I also provide the betting lines on winning each conference and division. Plus I give out my predictions on who I think will win the title. You can also check out our NBA handicapping page for even more information on betting pro basketball.

Update Schedule

I continuously update this page throughout the year. I’ve provided some key dates that you can expect to see them. There will also be other updates throughout the year as time allows. With each update we will create a checkpoint from the last time we looked at the lines. This way you can easily see how the oddsmakers have adjusted the numbers on each team.

  • Immediately after the previous NBA Finals
  • After key free agent signings
  • Right before the season
  • Christmas/New Year
  • All Star Break
  • Start of Playoffs

Understanding the Odds

The odds format 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 profit that amount. If the number is negative you have to bet that amount in order to profit $100. For example, if it was -300 then you have to bet $300 to cash $100. If it was +200 then a $100 bet would win you $200.

If you want to convert the money line into fractions. Simply take the line and divide it by 100. For example, if a team is +300, their fractional odd would be 3/1 (300/100).

Favorites to Win 2020 NBA Championship & Betting Predictions

The wait is finally over. Kawhi Leonard finally made his decision. It seemed like everyone thought that it was either going to be Kawhi joining forces with Lebron James and Anthony Davis on the Los Angeles Lakers or returning to the Toronto Raptors.

Turns out the soft-spoken Leonard had a trick up his sleeve. The reason he made everyone wait, is because he was recruiting Paul George to come with him. Once the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers worked out a trade for George,  Kawhi made it official that he was signing with the Clippers.

While it would have been something to watch James, Leonard and Davis cruise to an NBA title, you have to be excited about the new make-up of the NBA. It finally feels like there is some legit parity in the league with multiple teams in both leagues that feel like they got a legit shot to win it all.

According to the oddsmakers, the two best teams in the league are both in Los Angeles. The Clippers come in as the new odds on favorite to win the title at +300 with the Lakers right on their heels at +350.

You then have the Milwaukee Bucks at +600, 76ers at +1000, Rockets at +1200, Warriors at +1400, Raptors at +1600, Jazz at +1600, Nuggets at +2000, Celtics at +2000 and the Nets at +2200.

The only other teams with odds better than 100 to 1 are the Trail Blazers (+3300), Pacers (+4000), Thunder (+5000), Mavericks (+5000), Spurs (+6600), Pelicans (+6600) and Heat (+8000).

There could be another big shakeup on the way, as there is some belief out there that OKC is looking to trade Russell Westbrook. You have to think it’s legit. No way Westbrook wants to be on a rebuilding team and part of the haul they got for George was All-NBA Rookie point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Right now the Rockets, Heat and Pistons have all been linked to Westbrook, but there’s surely a few other suiters in the mix.

If anything happens we will be back to update the odds, otherwise we will wait to see if there’s any other big moves before the new season starts on October 22nd.
