NBA 2018-19 season: Top 5 team odds to win NBA Finals

These are the teams with the best overall odds to win it all this coming NBA season.


Golden State Warriors (-160)

Is there any surprise that the Warriors once again lead the odds to win the NBA finals? They're back, but this time with some help, as big man DeMarcus Cousins joined the cause. That has fans wondering if any team is capable of taking down a mighty Warriors five-some featuring All-Star players.


Boston Celtics (+600)

However, if one team is capable of taking out the Warriors in the finals it could be Boston. They were on the verge of knocking LeBron James and the Cavs out of the Eastern Conference finals last season, and that was without two stars. Those stars, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, are both healthy and ready to go with the full team this season.


Houston Rockets (+800)

The team that came closest to taking the Warriors out of the playoffs was the Houston Rockets last year. However, they had CP3 out of action when he was needed. They'll hope they get back to that Western Conference finals with Chris Paul, James Harden, and new addition Carmelo Anthony ready to ball.


Los Angeles Lakers (+1000)

Have you heard the news? LeBron James has officially joined the Lakers. That means the East may have become a bit easier, and the West became even more stacked. However, this man has taken his team to the NBA finals in the last nine attempts. Now, he's teaming up with Lakers' emerging young stars and a batch of skilled veterans, rookies, and playmakers. Can LeBron deliver another title to Los Angeles?


Philadelphia 76ers (+1200)

Philly was quiet over the offseason, but kept their two biggest stars on the roster with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Both are due for All-Star appearances in the coming season. Depending on what former No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz brings this season, they could make for one powerful trio of stars. Philadelphia looked capable of making a run last season, but ultimately experience caught up with them. Will this season prove better?
