The Milwaukee Bucks are the 2020-2021 NBA Champions. Milwaukee cashed at +550 ahead of this past season, but now we look ahead to next year.
Here are the current odds, per BetMGM.
Injuries derailed the Nets title run this season, losing to the Bucks in seven games in the Eastern Conference semifinals, but oddsmakers are keen on the talent on Brooklyn with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden all set to return.
The Los Angeles Lakers, expecting better health from both their stars, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, are +450, while the Bucks are 8-1 to repeat as champions.
The Warriors and Jazz are both +1200 heading into next season while this season’s Western Conference Champions Phoenix Suns are +1400.
The Philadelphia 76ers may have a big move to make with Ben Simmons reportedly on the trading block, and oddsmakers are not too high on last season’s No. 1 seed in the East, listing them at +1600.
Kawhi Leonard may be out for most of next season with a partially torn ACL, but the Clippers are +1800 to hoist the trophy next season.
Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets are 20-1 to win the NBA title.
The Dallas Mavericks are +3000 with next season's betting favorite to win MVP Luka Doncic in the fold, while the Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat are each +3500.
However, it’s the Celtics at 40-1 who provide some interesting value. With new coach Ime Udoka taking over to lead two budding stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the Celtics can be right back in title contention after making the Eastern Conference Finals two seasons ago.
The Pelicans, with Zion Williamson and new coach Willie Green, are 125-1.
