If there was any doubt that the NBA is a game of individual players, one just need look at the odds to win the 2019-20 NBA title, as the Los Angeles Clippers, who were +1600 on Friday, July 5, are now the favorites to win the title after news that Kawhi Leonard was going to be signing there.

The Lakers, who had previously dominated the offseason news, dropped from +175 to +375, but Los Angeles still has the top two teams in terms of betting odds. The Milwaukee Bucks also saw a drop in their odds and are No. 3 overall and the top team in the East at +600, down from +700 the previous day, while the Raptors saw their odds take a bit hit, going from +700 to +2000 on news that Leonard was leaving. These are the current odds to win the 2019-20 NBA championship at 5Dimes as of July 6.

Leonard heading to the Clippers does several things. In the East, it makes Milwaukee’s path to the NBA Finals a little bit easier and teams usually need a year or two of disappointment before they’re able to take the big leap to the NBA title, so the Bucks may not be the worst of bets at +600, as you would likely have some decent opportunities to hedge your wager if they can make it to the Eastern Conference Finals, which they should, as on paper, anyway, they should battle the 76ers for the Eastern title, which is also reflected in the odds.

In the West, it allows you you get some decent odds on a couple of the old guard teams, such as the Houston Rockets or Golden State Warriors. Everybody likes the Clippers and the Lakers and their shiny new toys, which is understandable, but don’t overlook guys like Curry or Hardin and how they can carry a team at times.

There are likely to be several other big moves taking place before the new season rolls around, so expect to see a few more changes in the odds.
