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.

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.
