Odds To Win The NBA Championship

NBA Finals Futures 2019 Championship Odds

Betting odds to win the NBA Championship have never been easier to access and are available year-round thanks to top ranked online sportsbook. Shortly after each NBA Finals Champion is crowned, bookmakers post lines on the following season and those prices are available LIVE 365 days per year. We love hoops wagering action!

Various levels of "people in charge" protest betting being tied to their sports. We would have bought that, back when the Mob were running books, but that is simply not the case any longer. That is primarily due to exciting advancements that are being made in the online sports betting industry. Now they all say it (but don't mean it) as North American Pro, College and Amateur sports receive global publicity since odds for their games are posted every day. Our 2019 NBA Finals futures board receives weekly updates once regular season contests begin.

NBA Hot and Not: 2018-19 Championship Finals Week 23 Price Update

Hoop it up everyone, as it is a fantastic time to be a fan of betting on basketball. In addition to March Madness being underway, the National Basketball Association playoff picture is starting to round into shape. Five teams have now clinched a postseason berth while another eight have been officially eliminated. With most teams having ten or less games left on their regular season slate - the current top eight squads in both conferences appear headed to the NBA Finals playoffs that begin with quarterfinal action on April 13, 2019.

“Utah, Toronto and Philadelphia have the “easiest” remaining strength of schedule”

Not giving an inch, Milwaukee and Toronto continue to battle for the NBA regular season crown, as the Bucks have a two game lead on the Raptors. Both squads appear to be feeling the affects of the long season as Milwaukee is 5-5 and Toronto is 6-4 over their last ten contests. Odds from the bookmakers at Bet365 reflect how close the Raptors and Bucks are as they have an identical +900 money line to claim the Larry O’Brien trophy. Those odds are still well below the tiny (-220) price that Golden State is tagged with.

“NBA Playoff Prep: Register a private betting account at top online sportsbooks”

Playing at the same middling level as the Eastern Conference leaders, the Warriors and Denver are longshots to claim first overall as they are running out of games and sit 4 and 4.5 games back respectively. Running hot, Philadelphia has moved into fifth overall as they have a two game lead on Houston. The Rockets (+1100) and 76ers (+1200) are close on the NBA Championship futures betting board at Bet365. Boston (+1600) is the sixth favorite and we don’t recommend spending hard earned cash on any team below the Celtics.

Week 23 Observation: With a fabulous “Big Five” Philadelphia is a strong NBA title longshot bet.

Eastern Conference 2019 Championship: Week 23 Odds Update

Mirror images of each other, when looking at the expanded NBA standings, there isn’t a lot separating Toronto and Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference fight for first. Both teams have near identical Home, Road and Division records with ten games remaining. The Bucks (35-10) have been slightly better than the Raptors (30-14) in conference games. Toronto has a shot at catching Milwaukee as the Raptors slate ends with contests against teams with a combined .416 win percentage while the Bucks will face squads with .488 WP.

“Milwaukee as an 89% chance at finishing first in the Eastern Conference”

Firing off some warning shots, Philadelphia has won six straight and they are red-hot with super-center Joel Embiid back in the mix. The 76ers won’t catch Milwaukee or Toronto, sitting six games back, but the 76ers knocked off the East contending Pacers, Bucks and Celtics during their winning run. Separated by one game, Indiana and Boston are fighting for the fourth seed and they will most likely face each other in the opening round of the playoffs. Based on the remaining games – here are the projected first round matchups.

“Bucks vs Heat – Raptors vs Nets – 76ers vs Pistons – Celtic vs Pacers”

High priced longshots, Detroit, Brooklyn and Miami round out the current top eight. The Pistons and Nets are separated by just a half game and both appear NBA playoff bound. The Heat are in a fierce battle with Orlando for top spot in the Southeast Division as those two squads are separated by just 1.5 games. Charlotte has fallen 3.5 games off the pace in the race for the final East playoff berth. We can’t see any of those teams winning a first round playoff series and suggest avoiding their lofty, though tempting, East title lines.

Western Conference 2019 Championship: Week 23 Odds Update

Similar to the East race, Golden State and Denver continue their ultra-close first place battle in the Western Conference. Both playing decent recently, the Warriors defeated Houston and Oklahoma City during a 3-1 run while the Nuggets topped Indiana and Boston during a 4-0 winning streak. The Warriors have 12 matches left on their slate and just four of them are against playoff contending teams. Facing a much tougher road, nine of the Nuggets last 13 matches are against teams currently holding a postseason position.

“Golden State has a 75% chance of earning home court advantage in the West”

Trailing the West leaders, by 4 and 4.5 games respectively, Houston and Portland remain separated by just a half game in the fight for third place. The Rockets are on a 12-2 winning run while the Trail Blazers have posted an 11-4 mark over their last fifteen contests.  Utah leads the bottom four West contenders as the Jazz have a half-game lead on the Spurs, Clippers and Thunder. Those four teams are close to clinching a playoff berth but where they finish overall won’t be decided until the season ends on April 10, 2019. 

“Eighth in the West, Oklahoma City would be two games out of fourth in the East”

Though not officially eliminated, the end is near for Sacramento, Minnesota and the LA Lakers, as they will not climb into a playoff position. Of those teams, LeBron James and the Lakers are the biggest disappointment as they have posted a dismal 3-14 recent record. While they certainly haven’t looked invincible lately, it remains difficult to look past Golden State as West champions. The Dubs are aiming at becoming the first team in modern NBA history (since 1971) to claim five straight conference championships.

West Observation Week 23: Laying $350 to win $100 makes Golden State a tough buy.
