Early on Tuesday afternoon, the Westgate Superbook became the first major oddsmakers to post win totals for the upcoming NBA season. Several hours later, they posted for all six division winners.
Based on these odds, the Southwest is expected to be the most competitive division with four teams listed at 8/1 or better. The Northwest is far and away the least competitive division, with the Thunder listed at 1/50 — an implied probability of more than 98%.
The tables below examine the current divisional odds at the Westgate and will be updated throughout the offseason as more sportsbooks post their odds.
|New York Knicks||+1200|
|Oklahoma City Thunder||-5000|
|Portland Trail Blazers||+10000|
|Golden State Warriors||-200|
|Los Angeles Clippers||+150|
|Los Angeles Lakers||+20000|
|San Antonio Spurs||-160|
|New Orleans Pelicans||+800|
