These five basketball squads are leading the league in terms of their chances at a title in 2019.

The NBA season isn't quite halfway over, yet, but a number of teams are separating themselves from the rest of the league. Below are five teams to keep an eye on as favorites to win the Larry O'Brien trophy in 2019.

1

Golden State Warriors

There's no surprise here, as Golden State remains the team to beat. The reigning champions have had their stumbles along the way, and various losses make them look beatable. However, once DeMarcus Cousins is available, this team could be truly unstoppable in the postseason. The Warriors are the 5-9 favorites to repeat.

2

Toronto Raptors

While Kawhi Leonard is a superstar, his arrival to the Raptors this offseason brought questions. Those included "How is his health?" and "Would he lead this team?" So far the answers are "Just fine" and "Absolutely!" The team has set the standard in the Eastern Conference and is clearly the top contender. They hold 8-1 odds to win it all.
