The Golden State Warriors fell one game short of back-to-back NBA titles last month, but oddsmakers are confident of a bounce-back 2016-17 season after the Dubs agreed to a two-year contract with superstar free agent Kevin Durant on Monday.
Golden State is a huge favorite to win the 2017 title at -115, per Oddsshark. The only other team oddsmakers like is the Cleveland Cavaliers, who currently stand at +350.
It’s probably going to take a major injury or a blockbuster trade, or perhaps both, to knock the Warriors off their perch as championship favorites.
Here’s a list of the teams with the best odds to win the NBA Finals next season.
- Golden State Warriors, -115
- Cleveland Cavaliers, +350
- San Antonio Spurs, +800
- Oklahoma City Thunder, +2000
- Los Angeles Clippers, +2000
- Boston Celtics, +2000
- Miami Heat, +2500
- Toronto Raptors, +2500
