With the basketball season set to resume on July 31 in Orlando, we have the latest 2020 NBA Championship odds with news and notes on LeBron’s Lakers (+225), Kawhi’s Clippers (+300) and Giannis’ Bucks (+325).
Given we still don’t know if the NBA season will resume or if there will even be playoffs this year, there’s no telling when the draft might take place. However, that didn’t stop oddsmakers from installing Georgia shooting guard Anthony Edwards (-110) as the early favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick ahead of fellow teens James Wiseman (+200) and LaMelo Ball (+400).
After leading his Lakers to big wins over the league-leading Bucks and rival Clippers last week, LeBron James has improbably swung an MVP race that looked all but over just a week ago.
Odds list Montrezl Harrell (+125) as the slight favorite to win Sixth Man of the Year in 2019-20. Is he the best bet? Read on to see who else is contending for the award.
Odds have Giannis Antetokounmpo (+100) and Anthony Davis (+100) as co-favorites to win the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award. Are either a good bet?
After being shipped to New Orleans for Anthony Davis in the offseason, the Pelicans’ Brandon Ingram is the favorite to win the NBA’s Most Improved Player of the Year Award, but is Miami’s Bam Adebayo the better bet?
Mike Budenholzer was named the NBA’s Coach of the Year in 2018/19 after leading the Bucks to a league-high 60 wins, so with Milwaukee flirting with 70 Ws this season, logic would suggest he should claim the honor again. See the latest odds here.
The Toronto Raptors are the new favorites to win the Atlantic Division after reeling off a 15-game win streak. Will the Boston Celtics be able to make up 1.5 games in the standing over the season’s final two months?
