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 less than a month away from opening night. Which is October 25th. It features 3 great games. The Knicks visit the Cavs, the Jazz are at the Blazers and Warriors host the Spurs.
Now is a great time to take a look at how the odds to win it all have changed since the summer. We last check in back on July 5th. At that time the Warriors were the odds on favorite at -145. Golden State remains on top the list, but their odds have dropped some. The Warriors are currently listed at -125.
No surprise that Cleveland has the second best odds at +300, slight down from +350. The only other team with odds at 15 to 1 or better are the Spurs at +900.
After that we have the Celtics at +1800 and the Clippers at +2500. Then comes another big gap. The Thunder, Raptors and Bulls all come in at +4000. No other team is currently listed better than 50 to 1.
If someone surprises outside of the Top 3, there’s going to be quite a nice payout. However, it does seem unlikely that the team who wins it all won’t be either the Warriors, Spurs or Cavs.
Oddsmakers have also recently released odds to win each conference and each division. I’ve included the updated odds for them below. Now is also a great time to get in your wagers in on the NBA win totals for each team.
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
- All Star Break
- Start of Playoffs
Odds to Win the 2016-17 NBA Finals
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).
