With it coming to the end of the NBA championship this season, basketball fans and looking into the playoffs to see which teams are looking likely to go on and win the title this season. Due to last season winners Los Angeles Lakers losing in the first round of the playoffs, the earliest Lebron James has gone out of the playoffs in his career, there is certainly an opportunity for a team to go on and claim a monumental win.
The big favourites for the playoffs this season is that of the Brooklyn Nets who have created one of the best rosters in recent times which includes Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Nets are heavy favourites priced at 13/8 and we believe this offers a lot of value for a win this June. The Nets have been given some bad news after their first game over the Bucks when Harden pulled up after pulling his hamstring and will most likely be out for the rest of the tournament, but the bookies don’t seem bothered.
The second favourites for the NBA championship is actually the Milwaukee Bucks who are currently 1-0 down to the Brooklyn Nets. The Bucks had a difficult season in the play-offs as they went in as favourites but were very disappointing in their performance, mainly down to the fact of the injury of Giannis Antetokounmpo but this season he is firing but will need help from the rest of the Bucks if they are going to succeed this season. They will now know they have a golden opportunity to progress due to the injury of Harden and is certainly the match to be watching. Bucks are currently priced at 13/2 to win and might be worth a punt at the bookies like these betting sites not on gamstop, which are offering not only the best odds on the NBA right now, but also a range of different sports for you to indulge into from the comfort of your own home, and all not on the gamstop market.
And finally, last year’s finalist will feel like that they have a great opportunity to go one better this year and that is the Los Angeles Clippers. We thought the Clippers were out of the play-offs having gone two games down against Dallas, but with the big turnaround has pushed them odds back into 9/2. Starman Luka Doncic has now injured his neck and looks as if he might be out for the rest of the playoffs due to this.
