Kate Constable: Heat to win NBA title (+1000, BetMGM) 

The Nuggets are listed as the favorites to take home the NBA title again next season, but don't overlook the 2023 runners-up. With rumors that Damian Lillard wants to be traded to Miami, the Heat's odds to win the title next season have shrunk from 20-1 to as low as +800, as the books are anticipating the move. All signs point to the trade taking place before next season and if/when that happens, the Heat’s title odds are going to continue to get significantly shorter, making now the time to jump on the value.

With Lillard potentially playing alongside Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, I think Miami will jump the Celtics (+215) and Bucks (+320) to win the East. The Heat will likely have to give up Tyler Herro, along with a number of other assets, but adding the seven-time All-Star is certainly an upgrade. Lillard takes the majority of the scoring load off of Butler and is also someone Miami can count on late in games, which has been an issue in the postseason. Lillard also fits the Heat culture, so as long as Pat Riley can figure out a way to acquire Lillard without blowing up the entire roster, Miami should have a real shot at getting back to the Finals and finally winning it all.

Lucy Burdge: Celtics to win the Eastern Conference (+215, DraftKings)

The Celtics fell short of winning the Eastern Conference this past season, but I don’t see that happening again next year. They’ve made some changes coaching-wise, putting some more experience alongside head coach Joe Mazzula, and I think that will be an important piece of helping this team succeed and get back to the NBA Finals. Plus, if Jaylen Brown stays with the team, keeping Brown and Tatum together is a huge advantage. So I think the Celtics can make a real run this season and win the East.

Brad Pinkerton: Blazers' Scoot Henderson to win Rookie of the Year (+400, FanDuel)

The Spurs' Victor Wembanyama is rightfully the clear favorite to win NBA ROY, but don't forget about Henderson, who deserved to be the No. 2-overall pick after Wemby. The Blazers seem likely to trade Damian Lillard sooner than later and essentially hand the keys to the offense over to Henderson. He definitely has the talent in that spot to push Wemby for the ROY award. However, this is really a bet against Wemby putting in a full season. An injury (can his slender frame really hold up in Year 1 of a full NBA season?) or minutes restrictions on the Spurs' prized rookie would open the door for Henderson to run away with this award, so I'll lock in +400 while I can.

Dan Karpuc: Boston Celtics To Win NBA Championship (+550, BetRivers)

After going 57-25 in last year’s regular season, the Boston Celtics’ campaign ended in a disappointing Game 7 loss to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. As a result, President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens decided to make splashy moves in the offseason, trading away veteran team leader and defensive stalwart Marcus Smart and adding lanky big man Kristaps Porzingis, who had an awesome season for the Washington Wizards. The team also selected Alabama forward Jordan Walsh in the NBA Draft and signed veterans Oshae Brissett and Dalano Banton in free agency. Also notably, star wing Jaylen Brown signed a supermax extension that will keep him in Boston moving forward while Grant Williams was traded away to the Mavericks.

After the moves, I would expect the starting five to look like this: PG Derrick White, SG Jaylen Brown, SF Jayson Tatum, PF Kristaps Porzingis and C Al Horford. I then expect reigning Sixth Man of the Year Malcolm Brogdon to be the first man off the bench, joined by Robert Williams III, Brissett, Sam Hauser and Payton Pritchard. Banton, Walsh, JD Davison and Luke Kornet will be other depth options. All in all, this is an elite core that should continue to operate at an elite level, just like last season when the Celtics ranked 2nd in Offensive Rating, 2nd in Defensive Rating and 1st in Net Rating. 

Signing Porzingis was a fantastic move and he will give Boston a much-desired new look on both ends of the floor. Now second-year head coach Joe Mazzulla will be able to go to a very lengthy lineup if he chooses, which could come in handy against top Eastern Conference foes like Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks and Joel Embiid and the Sixers. Not only that, but all five starters will be able to stretch the floor offensively, which will make that unit extremely difficult to defend. As soon as the defense collapses on anyone driving into the lane, there will be a reliable open shooter on the perimeter and if nobody helps, high-percentage looks around the rim will be available.

After making the NBA Finals in 2022 and then losing in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals in 2023, this group is ready to get over the hump and I expect them to in 2024.
