As the NBA playoffs are underway, here is a look at the updated NBA championship odds.
The Milwaukee Bucks remain the betting favorites to bring home the trophy, but a couple of teams are not far behind. The Bucks ended the regular season holding on to their lead in the Eastern Conference to stay as the No. 1 seed. The Boston Celtics, the preseason title favorites, had a rocky stretch in March, causing them to lose their grip on the top seed. They ended up finishing the season one game behind the Bucks as the No. 2 seed.
Let’s dive into the updated championship futures for all teams, with odds via FOX Bet.

The Bucks claiming the top seed in the East is significant. They will have home-court advantage throughout the postseason, which has proven to be crucial in the past. Do the Celtics or Sixers have what it takes to take down the 2021 NBA champions? At +900, the Sixers and MVP favorite Joel Embiid are certainly an intriguing title bet.
The Kings ended the longest postseason drought in NBA history (16 seasons). Does the No. 3 seed in the West have what it takes to make a run? Sacramento’s odds have shortened all the way to +4500 after starting the season at +50000. Although they are young and untested, they offer great value as they’ve played consistent ball all season, and Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox have proven to be a great tandem.
With LeBron James back from injury, nobody wants to see this hot Laker team. Their odds have shortened to +1400 after being at +2200 heading into the play-in round.
So, who are you throwing some money on to win it all? The NBA postseason is here, so it’s time to get your bets in at FOX Bet!
