2017-18 NBA Divisional Odds

2017-18 NBA Divisional Odds

NBA Divisional Odds came out while NBA Free Agency was in full swing but plenty has changed since the summer. We’ll continue to update odds for all teams as the season progresses.

ATLANTIC (EAST)

TeamOct 16July 2
Celtics-400-200
Raptors+450+350
76ers+1000+650
Knicks+3300+1400
Nets+20000+5000

Celtics opened -200 but have moved to -400 following the Kyrie Irving trade. Every other team in the Atlantic saw their odds get worse.

CENTRAL (EAST)

TeamOct 16July 2
Cavs-1500-600
Bucks+700+600
Pistons+2000+2000
Pacers+10000+2800
Bulls+25000+5000

Cleveland is now a massive -1500 favorite to win the Central even after the IT/Irving trade with Boston. Indiana traded Paul George which allowed their divisional odds to soar, and Chicago is unraveling quickly as well.

SOUTHEAST (EAST)

TeamOct 16July 2
Wizards-170-125
Heat+275+600
Hornets+325+650
Magic+3300+450
Hawks+5000+1200

Wizards have had a sizable move from -125 to -170 to win the division, while the Hawks and Magic have faded significantly. We’ve also seen movement on Miami and Charlotte, but that can be attributed to Atlanta and Orlando completely falling out of the picture.

NORTHWEST (WEST)

TeamOct 16July 2
Thunder-160+250
TWolves+275+220
Nuggets+500+800
Blazers+1600+1000
Jazz+2000+225

The Northwest Division is another great example of how much the Free Agency period can affect teams. OKC is now the -160 favorite again after they found themselves behind both Minnesota and Utah over the summer. From top to bottom, this is the strongest division in the NBA and full of exciting young players. Most bettors are taking OKC or Minnesota to take the division title, but keep an eye on the Nuggets +500.

SOUTHWEST (WEST)

TeamOct 16July 2
Rockets-120+125
Spurs+130+110
Pelicans+1400+1000
Grizzlies+2000+1600
Mavs+5000+2500

This looks like a two-horse race between San Antonio and Houston, both hovering around a 50% chance to win the division. The Pelicans (+1400) and Grizzlies (+2000) both have talented teams, but probably not enough to compete against the Spurs or Rockets.

PACIFIC (WEST)

TeamOct 16July 2
Warriors-5000-2500
Clippers+2000+2500
Lakers+5000+2500
Suns+25000+10000
Kings+25000+10000

The least competitive division in the NBA will be the Warriors’ to lose, and it would be a shock if any team comes within 10 games of Golden State.
