The Toronto Raptors knocked off the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last night to earn the team’s first Larry O’Brien Trophy in franchise history. As the celebration rages on in Canada this morning, the other 29 teams here in America and their fan bases are collectively turning the page, shifting attention to next year. Here in Philadelphia, we’ve spent over a month digesting the shock of Kawhi Leonard’s triple-clank Game 7 Eastern Conference Semifinals buzzer-beater that sank the Sixers, while debating if the team should run it back next season.

It may be early with the NBA Draft and what looks to be a wild summer of free agency still in front of us, but we already have odds on which team will be the last one standing next spring. Let’s take a look at the early 2020 NBA Championship odds and how the Sixers stack up.

Those of you in Pennsylvania, can find out more about how to get in on the action on our PA sports betting page.

TeamDraftKings SportsbookPointsBetFanDuel Sportsbook
Bucks+500+500+480
Warriors+700+600+600
Lakers+700+600+850
Raptors+700+900+600

Celtics+2000+1400+1600
Nets+2500+2000+2400
Knicks+2500+2200+2500

The Sixers (+1000) check in with the sixth-best odds overall at both DraftKings Sportsbook (+1000) and FanDuel Sportsbook (+1100), but PointsBet (+800) is a bit more bullish, giving them the fourth-best odds. The Sixers are also currently +1000 at SugarHouse, which will soon be rebranded as Rivers Casino Philadelphia. While you can get the strongest pay out on a Sixers championship at FanDuel, if you plan to back another team on this futures market, be sure to shop around for the best value.

While the other books currently offer only a champions future and some draft markets, DraftKings is also offering unique futures props that lock in only if select teams acquire certain players. For instance, you can grab the Knicks at +350 with the if qualifier of Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant each starting next season in New York, or the Lakers at +600 if Irving reunites with LeBron. There could be some value there, and at the very least, getting involved is one sure-fire way to spice up the offseasonn.

    The Sixers will never win with Embide And Brown as coach. Why are the odds even out as they only have 3 players under contract for next year. Sixers a bad bet winning the Chip next year.They will be a 5 seed in the East at best. Elton Brand panicked at the trade deadline. Oh well, most Duke alumni are bad NBA People.

    Can someone explain to me the Lakers love?? Lebron is on the back 9 of his career. He’s still good, but not exactly what he used to be, especially on defense. They have some young nice players, but no other stars. All of which they are going to trade to get Anthony Davis, who has won exactly 1 playoff series. I havent heard one single rumor of an off season acquisition other than the rumor that none of the great free agents want to play with Lebron. They hired their third choice for head coach. Their front office is a disaster. So please….help me out here. Other than the West getting worse because the Warriors split up, what do the Lakers bring to the table that scares anyone?

      Also….Durant going to the Knicks isnt going to help their case for next years championship as he probably wont play for a calendar year.

    This whole list could be affected by the draft and free agency and the Anthony Davis trade literally every team on that list could either go up or down. we won’t know really who are the favorites for the finals next year until after July 1st.
