After scoring two-time NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to go with their young nucleus, the Los Angeles Clippers are now the +300 “chalk” to win the 2020 NBA championship at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
Milwaukee, fresh off a trip to the Eastern Conference finals, has 9/2 odds (+450). The Bucks added Robin Lopez and Wesley Matthews in free agency, in addition to re-signing Brook Lopez and Khris Middleton.
The next-shortest odds belong to the Lakers (5/1), 76ers (8/1), Warriors (12/1), Rockets (12/1), Nuggets (14/1), Jazz (14/1), Celtics (25/1) and Trail Blazers (30/1).
Brooklyn, Indiana and Miami share 40/1 odds, while the Mavericks and Spurs are at 50/1.
After the Clippers pulled their coup late Friday night on the West coast, the Lakers did their best to respond today. They’ve signed DeMarcus Cousins and Quinn Cook, in addition to re-signing Rajon Rondo.
According to the Westgate’s Jeff Sherman, the popular Las Vegas betting shop didn’t get hit hard with future bets on the Clippers at the generous 16/1 odds before last night’s news rocked the NBA landscape.
