The Brooklyn Nets are the main favourites of the coming NBA 2021-22 season at the moment. According to the international betting sites, their closest competitors are the Los Angeles Lakers, the most successful NBA team in history. And the Golden State Warriors, who haven’t qualified for the playoffs last time, were named the third favourite.
The Brooklyn Nets were beaten in the quarter-finals in the 2020-21 season. Kevin Durant’s trio averaged 85.2 points per game, which is an absolute record in the playoffs. They finished second in the Western Conference, and lacked only 1 win to finish first.
The Brooklyn Nets to win the next season are priced with the odds of 3.75 (+275 American; 11/4 Fractional), which equals an approximate probability of 27%.
The Los Angeles Lakers are the second favourite of the NBA 2021-22. They have disappointed their fans finishing in 7th in the Wester Conference and losing in the Round of 16. In spite of this failed season, bookmakers kept the chances of the Lakers’ triumph in the next season priced high, with the odds of 4.50 (+350; 7/2). Chances are around 22%.
The Golden State Warriors had won Western Conference for 5 years in a row, but the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons were a failure for them. In the NBA 2019-20 they finished last in the Western Conference, whereas in 2020-21 they did not qualify for the playoffs. Despite this, the roster of the Warriors is still the most expensive in the league at the moment. Betting sites priced their win at 8.00 (+700; 7/1), which is 8% probability.
The fourth by the chances of winning the league, and also of the Western Conference are the Los Angeles Clippers. They have been showing a strong performance throughout the last season. They finished second in Pacific Division and third in the playoffs.
The LA Clippers to win the title for the first time come with the odds of 10.00 (+900; 9/1). Chances are around 10%.
Finalists of the last season will not be significant rivals, according to the bookies. The Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns odds and chances are as follows: the Bucks — 12.00 (+1100; 11/1) and 8% probability, the Suns — 14.00 (+1300; 13/1) and 7% probability.
