- The Los Angeles Lakers have +190 odds to win the NBA Championship odds.
- These Lakers’ betting odds are the shortest of all teams.
ORLANDO, Fla. – The NBA recently finalized its return to play plan that features 22 teams finishing the 2019-2020 season at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World with no fans allowed to attend the games.
As the reboot of the NBA season approaches, the Los Angeles Lakers remain the favorite to be the 2020 NBA Champion sat +190 odds.
However, this marks the first time the Lakers odds have been below +200 since the season halted and this comes despite the team has confirmed that Avery Bradley will not be playing in Orlando.
In replacing Bradley, the Lakers have reportedly signed J.R. Smith to a 1-year deal.
This signing still shouldn’t sway the team odds as LeBron James and Anthony Davis will be the biggest factors in the team’s success.
Lakers and Smith have been in talks since Avery Bradley opted-out of the restart, and those will culminate with a deal that will include him on the roster Lakers will submit to NBA on Wednesday, per sources. https://t.co/vtiqcfBvCm
