The Warriors were seen as unbeatable, and that was mostly the case until Durant went down with his injuries this spring.
There is still a whole hell of a lot to be decided in NBA free agency over the next month, but no matter what happens there should be one of the most wide open fields to win the title in pro basketball history at the start of the 2019-20 season.
Today, we’ll take a look at the early, early, NBA Championship futures odds at MetroBet.us/Sugar.
Getting futures bets in early is always a good strategy, as bookmakers set most odds pretty low with such uncertainty.
Here are the current odds to win the NBA title at MetroBet.us/Sugar in June 2020. You can find them by going to the NBA tab in the left hand column at MetroBet.us/Sugar and then scrolling all the way to the bottom to June 13, 2020.
LA Lakers +350
MIL Bucks +500
TOR Raptors +750
GS Warriors +800
HOU Rockets +800
PHI 76ers +1000
DEN Nuggets +1200
LA Clippers +1600
BKN Nets +2500
BOS Celtics +2500
NY Knicks +2500
If you bet $25 on the Sixers to win the 2020 title at MetroBet.us/Sugar right now and Joel Embiid and company come through a year from now, you would win $250 with a payout of $275. That’s a pretty good return on investment for a team that was a couple rims bounces away from beating this year’s eventual champions.
These odds will definitely fluctuate over the next few weeks with all of the player movement and the draft this week (a week ago, who had the Lakers with the top odds?). If you see something you like on the board now at MetroBet.us/Sugar, now’s the time!
