The Los Angeles Clippers saw a bit of a reduction in their odds and are now firmly the favorites to win the 2019-20 NBA championship. The Lakers are still No. 2 and stayed pretty much the same, while Milwaukee is still predicted to be the top team in the East and is No. 3 overall.

The Western Conference is expected to be much better than the East this season if the championship odds are any indication, as six of the top eight teams come from the West. Other than Milwaukee and Philadelphia, it’s hard to see anybody else from the East pushing for the title. The Celtics are the No. 3 team from the East, but are No. 9 overall and I’m not sure they’re better than a team like Portland, who is No. 10 at +4000, but the Blazers do have a much more difficult path to advance to the NBA Finals.

These are the current odds to win the 2019-20 NBA championship at 5Dimes as of Sept. 2

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 (now +635) as you would likely have some decent opportunities to hedge your wager if they can make it to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bucks have a decent chance to do so, 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 moves taking place before the new season rolls around, so expect to see a few more changes in the odds.
