While the Golden State’s presence at the top of this list was a given, Brooklyn could be a little more surprising. The Nets have only won one playoff series since signing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, and Ben Simmons didn’t even play last season. However, bettors believe in their talent, which is why Vegas made them one of the early Eastern Conference favorites along with the reigning Eastern Conference champion Celtics.

Milwaukee might well have won the East if Chris Middleton was healthy, but without him, the Bucks lost to the Celtics in the conference semifinals. They are second only to Boston and Brooklyn at plus-750. The Suns and Clippers, two finalists in the 2021 Western Conference, are over 800 points behind them.

If you’re curious about the 2020 Lakers champion, they’re almost minus 2,200. You might argue that their chances should be significantly worse. They missed the playoffs last season, and with all the reports indicating they’re unwilling to give up assets to move Russell Westbrook, their interest in fixing last season’s problems seems pretty limited. In fact, judging by the way the Nuggets looked the last time they were healthy, the idea of ​​them being even is a bit offensive to Denver. But LeBron James has reached the NBA Finals 10 times. Vegas needs to protect himself from the risk he poses when he’s healthy.

From there, the chances drop significantly. No team other than the Nuggets or the Lakers has a 50-to-1 odds. Remember, though, that these odds only take into account what’s in store for Vegas at the moment. All it takes to shake things up is one blockbuster move. If you think you have an idea of ​​how this off-season will go, you can take advantage of that by placing a bet right now.
