Paddy Power is currently offering odds on whether each NBA team will make the playoffs or not this upcoming season. Here is a look at last year’s standings.
Each conference has a few similarities, especially towards the top of the list.Both the Warriors and Cavaliers do not have a “Yes” option posted, as the payout would be essentially nothing. The Celtics and Spurs have the highest odds posted in each conference at -10,000, while the Raptors and Clippers are the third highest in their respective conferences at -2,500.
Beyond that, there are no teams listed higher than -350 to make the playoffs. Both teams listed at +100 provide some value in my mind. The Knicks are already getting a lot of action in Vegas to win the NBA title at 80/1, while the Timberwolves have a young core of budding superstars that may make the next step this season and help the team sneak into the playoff picture.
