NJ Sportsbooks NBA Champion Betting Odds 2020
The latest odds to win the NBA Championship from NJ Sportsbooks are updated daily.
The LA Clippers, yes, the LA Clippers are now favored to win the 2019-2020 NBA finals. The addition of Kawhi Leanord and Paul George has set up a “battle for LA” between the Clippers and Lakers. The LA Lakers led by Lebon James and Anthony Davis, are now the 2nd favorites to win the 2020 NBA Finals at FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Bucks, 76ers, and Warriors are a consensus 3-5 at most NJ Sports Betting Apps, but we see some variance after those positions. While DraftKings Sportsbook NJ has the same top 5 favorites to win as FanDuel, Caesars Sportsbook NJ has the Rockets listed ahead of GS Warriors.
Aside from the latest NBA champ odds for 2020, we also track NBA Consensus Picks on a daily basis during the regular season and NBA Playoffs.

NBA Free Agency Impact on Odds
An unpredictable end to the NBA season seeing the Toronto Raptors become NBA Finals Champions, lead into a wild NBA free agency period that has changed the landscape of the league heading into the 2019-2020 season.
The NBA Champion odds have changed swiftly with each signing, as the top-five (Clippers, Laker, Bucks, 76ers and Warriors), or the cream of the crop in the NBA is going through many iterations of itself.
Most notably, the top-five does not even include teams like the Celtics, who brought in Kemba Walker to replace Kyrie Irving or the Brooklyn Nets who brought in Kevin Durant, who is coming off what could be considered a death-knell injury to an athlete, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan.
Picking the Clippers as the early favorites could be easy with Kawhi Leonard coming aboard and bringing in Paul George (who does need shoulder surgery). However, a Lakers team of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Kuzma and Rajon Rondo could result in the battle for Los Angeles when it comes to the Western Conference Finals.
The Milwaukee Bucks did not do much, but by virtue of being in the East and having Giannis Antetokounmpo, they’ll be in the hunt with a 50+ win season.
After a season that did fall short in terms of expectations, the 76ers did add Al Horford and Jason Richardson, adding to a young and talented team. However, when it’s all said and done, they’ll have difficulty getting past teams like the Celtics, Bucks and even the Nets could give them a run for the money, even without Kevin Durant for this upcoming season.
Lastly, we have to discuss the Warriors. They’ve lost Kevin Durant to the Nets, Cousins to the Lakers and Klay Thompson tore his ACL in the NBA Finals. However, with loss comes gain. They brought in DeAngelo Russell to add to Stephen Curry and Draymond Green.
The Warriors will definitely be in the conversation, but it’s tough to imagine them competing with so many heavyweights. It seems their time in the spotlight is fading.
NBA Champion Prediction 2020
When it comes down to it, I’m just not one to pass on the Lakers, even with an aging Lebron James. Adding Anthony Davis and Boogie Cousins along with Kuzma is simply a loaded team, even against the Clippers Leonard and George.
The duo of Davis and Cousins on the floor at the same time, with James who basically plays all five positions at once, may just be too much for Leonard and the Clippers when it is all said and done.
Lay the money on the Lakers to win the 2020 NBA Finals!
