Odds to Win 2019-20 NBA Championship: Clippers Now Favored Over Lakers To Win Title

The one thing we can all agree on about the NBA offseason is it’s rarely boring. The Los Angeles Clippers pushed their chips to the center of the table, went all-in and completely shifted the gravity of the league by acquiring both Kawhi Leonard AND Paul George. These moves have not only given the Clippers the best duo in the NBA but have also placed them as the betting favorites to win the 2019-20 championship.

Online sportsbook BetOnline has the Clippers as +350 favorites followed by their neighbors, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Milwaukee Bucks, both at +500.

After the L.A. teams and Milwaukee, the Houston Rockets (+800) are next on the oddsboard, with the Philadelphia 76ers (+900), Golden State Warriors (+1400), Denver Nuggets (+1400), Utah Jazz (+1400), Boston Celtics (+2000) and Brooklyn Nets (+3300) rounding out the top 10.

Now, the Clippers have a stockpiled roster ready to unleash on the NBA and it makes perfect sense for them to be the championship favorites. Leonard is coming off arguably the greatest postseason run of all time with the Raptors while George was in the discussion for league MVP for a large portion of the season. With these two blockbuster moves, the Clippers’ odds to win the NBA title went from +1600 to +350.

I just don't think he's as good as a lot of people seem to think he is. It seems as though a lot of his play is predetermined, which would explain why seems to get "stuck" in the paint a lot or forced to put up some garbage.

I said it earlier in the summer, but Masai goofed not flipping him for PG and Russ. His stock will never be higher.

I honestly forgot to put the Lakers in the poll :lol:. It won't let me change it now. What we can do is substitute the Lakers for the clippers and the clippers for maybe the pacers. So if you feel like the Lakers are the most overrated just vote for the clippers
