Latest 2020 NBA Finals Odds

NBA Finals Odds 6/17/19, Warriors listed at 10/1 to win in 2020

The 2018-19 NBA Season wrapped up on Thursday night and there are a lot of wheels in motion for what is to come next season. Here is a look at the odds to win the NBA Finals in 2020.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Los Angeles Lakers are now the favorite to win the NBA Finals next season, as they have jumped up to 7/2 odds following a reported trade for Anthony Davis. The Milwaukee Bucks are listed with 7/1 odds while the Houston Rockets have 9/1 odds. The Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto Raptors are all coming in with 10/1 odds right now.

This weekend it was reported that the Lakers are sending Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first round NBA Draft picks, including the No. 4 pick in this week’s NBA Draft in return for Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans. The Lakers are giving up a lot for Davis, but expect to sign him to a massive new deal to keep him in Los Angeles for years, pairing him with LeBron James. The Lakers are coming off a 37-45 record last year, LeBron’s first with the team. They also still have a lot of cap space to work with to pursue other top free agents.

The Bucks had the best record in the NBA this past season (60-22) and they got to the Eastern Conference Finals before losing to the Toronto Raptors. Milwaukee has a talented, young roster led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, the potential NBA MVP this past season.

The Houston Rockets were disappointing in the postseason once again this year, losing in six games to the Warriors in the Western Conference semifinals. Houston had a 53-29 record during the regular season and still have some big names in James Harden, Chris Paul and Clint Capela. Those three may not remain together entering next fall.

Of the teams with 10/1 odds, which includes the NBA champion Toronto Raptors, the Warriors still remain the most intriguing. With the free agency and injuries to both Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, it changes the whole outlook for multiple teams. Durant may miss all of next season with a torn Achilles while Thompson is going to miss most of the season due to his torn ACL. Will the injuries and the loss in the NBA Finals keep this Golden State team together for another year? Can they overcome the injuries enough to still be a top team entering the playoffs?
