2016-17 NBA Divisional Odds

The NBA offseason is almost over and summer doldrums for basketball fans are coming to a close. On Tuesday afternoon, Irish sportsbook Paddy Power became the first book to post odds for all six NBA division winners.

According to these oddsmakers, both the Northwest and Southeast Divisions will be hotly contested. In each of those divisions, four teams are listed at 9/2 or better.

The Pacific Division, home of the Golden State Warriors, projects as the least competitive division. The Warriors, who added superstar Kevin Durant to their already strong core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, are listed at 1/100, which is an implied probability of roughly 99%.

The tables below capture the current divisional odds at Paddy Power and will be updated throughout the season.
