Here’s a look at the most recent odds to win the 2016-17 NBA Finals for all 30 teams. The teams are ordered based on their current odds to win.

We are a little over 2 months into the 2016-17 NBA regular season. However, the saying is that the season doesn’t really start until Christmas. I figured what better time to take a look at the odds than now.

Unfortunately not a lot has changed since we last checked in. The Warriors remain the overwhelming favorites to win it all at -130. The Cavaliers are still a close second at +250. All signs point to these two teams meeting up in the NBA Finals for a 3rd straight season. If you ask just about any expert, that’s what you are going to get.

The only other teams with odds at 10 to 1 or better are the Spurs (+850) and the Clippers (+1000). You can’t ever count out San Antonio. If there was a team to spoil the rematch everyone wants, it will likely be Popovich and the Spurs. The Clippers are a scary team when healthy. I just don’t know if they can stay hot enough to win a 7-game series.

The other team getting some love in the Western Conference are the Rockets, who sit at +2800. Houston has certainly been one of the big surprises. Keep in mind they were sitting at 100 to 1 prior to the season starting.

The only team in the Eastern Conference with odds better than 40 to 1 other than the Cavs is Toronto. The Raptors are right there with the Rockets at +2800. Toronto is a lot better than they get credit for. However, it would like take LeBron James getting hurt for them to take down Cleveland in the playoffs.

Oddsmakers also have odds to win each conference and each division. I’ve updated the odds for them below. I’ll be back to update the odds around All-Star Weekend (Feb. 17-19).

I will continue to update the odds throughout the year. I’ve provided some key dates that you can expect to see updates. There will also be other updates throughout the year as time allows.

  • Immediately after the previous NBA Finals
  • After key free agent signings
  • Right before the season

The odds on this page are listed as 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.

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