    [January 13] With the Grizzlies surging towards the top of the West, their odds have shortened to +4200

    [December 16] While we haven’t seen much movement in the top ten of the title odds, the Cavaliers have proven to be a real group capable of making the playoffs – and their title odds have shortened in to the second tier at +10000

    [November 29] The Warriors continue their surge with the best record in the league, now the consensus secondary team in the NBA Championship odds

    [November 10] The Golden State Warriors hold the league’s best record as Steph Curry plays at an MVP level, and their odds have shortened as low +850 which you can find at FanDuel Sportsbook

    [November 1] Vaulting off their win in Milwaukee Sunday night, the Jazz have jumped the Warriors and shortened to odds of +1000 at the FanDuel Sportsbook to win the title

    [August 31] With reports emerging that Ben Simmons will refuse to report to Sixers camp, Philadelphia’s odds remain unchanged

    [August 4] As Kyle Lowry will be joining Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler on South Beach, the Heat saw the biggest move in the 2022 NBA title odds, now the second shortest team in the East at +1600.

    [July 30] With the reported acquisition of Russell Westbrook to join AD and LeBron, the Lakers saw their price shorten from as long as +600 at some books to an average of +410 across the web. Arizona fanatics can find the Suns remaining strong contenders after re-signing Chris Paul, at average odds of +1400

    [July 21] Despite Giannis closing out his first Finals to win in dominant fashion, the Bucks have only opened at +900 to win the title next season. The Brooklyn Nets are heavy +200 favorites at most NY sportsbooks, while LeBron & the Lakers are +525

    2018 Golden State Warriors
    2017 Golden State Warriors

    With their win in 2021, the Milwaukee Bucks broke a 49 season title drought – with Giannis Antetokounmpo now immortalized alongside Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Bucks lore.

    After coming oh-so-close in the 2021 Finals by going up 2-0, the Phoenix Suns title drought has now extended to 30 appearances in the postseason without a title win. With Chris Paul likely returning to join Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton next season, the Suns may very well end that drought.
