Updated odds to win the 2019-2020 NBA championship
The Golden State Warriors opened as the favourites to win the 2019-20 NBA title, but their odds dropped shortly after the news of Klay Thompson’s torn ACL. Who took over the top spot?
The odds to win the 2019-2020 NBA title were released moments after the Toronto Raptors were crowned champions, but they’ve already changed.
According to SuperBook USA’s Vice President of Risk Management Jeff Sherman, the Golden State Warriors opened up as 7/2 favourites to win next season’s title. Once the report came through that Klay Thompson had been diagnosed with a torn ACL, those odds changed in a hurry.
The Warriors dropped to 14/1 odds, the eighth-best in the league.
The Los Angeles Lakers, who are in trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans to land Anthony Davis, have taken the top spot as favourites to win next year’s NBA championship.
