Nets +260 still Favorites to win NBA Title

December 27, 2021

The Milwaukee Bucks’ title run is in the rear-view mirror and it’s time to look at new NBA championship odds with the 2021-22 season now about a third of the way through.

The Western Conference has a couple of teams starting to separate themselves from the pack, but the East is clogged from top to bottom and has eight teams within 6.5 games of first place.

After a disappointing Game 7 loss to the Bucks in the second round of the playoffs and despite controversy around the availability of star point guard Kyrie Irving, the preseason favorite Brooklyn Nets (+260) still sit atop the oddsboard.

Next up are the Golden State Warriors (+550), the defending champion Bucks (+700) and the Phoenix Suns (+700) to round out the top four teams.

What Are The Bucks’ Chances Of Repeating?

While teams passed them in NBA championship odds, the Milwaukee Bucks entered the 2021-22 season with a very similar roster.

Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday make the Bucks one of the undisputed top teams in the league and certainly one of the top two or three on paper in the Eastern Conference.

While it makes sense that a healthy Nets team be ranked over Milwaukee, any questions about Giannis’ ability to perform come playoff time have been more than answered and it will be hard to bet against them in a seven-game series next spring.

That said, the team is still tied for third in NBA championship odds and we think there are other teams that present better value at this time.

It wasn’t the easiest start to the season either for the Bucks, but they are still near the top of the standings sitting at 22-13 and third in the East.
