NBA 2019-20 To Win Outright Odds - Lakers installed as early favourites after Anthony Davis trade

Unibrow in LA: Anthony Davis will team up with LeBron James in LA this season

Bookmakers have installed the Los Angeles Lakers as the favourites to win the 2020 NBA title following the team’s agreement to acquire Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Lakers can be backed at +275 with bet365 to emerge as champions in the coming season. Under the deal, the Pelicans will ship Davis to LA for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round draft picks. The versatile big man had requested a move to the Lakers ahead of last season’s trade deadline but the Pelicans opted to wait after the end of the season before making any moves. Davis will join forces with LeBron James, who lobbied for his acquisition last season, in their quest to give the storied franchise a 17th NBA title. The Lakers were also considered among the early title contenders last season with James’ arrival but they eventually finished with a 37-45 record and missed the play-offs for the sixth consecutive season.

The Milwaukee Bucks are the second-favourites with bet365 to win the Larry O’Brien trophy this season and they are currently priced at +650 to achieve the feat. Led by MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks recorded an NBA-best 60-22 record last season before losing to eventual champions Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference finals. 

The Raptors are the third favourites and they can be backed at +700 to repeat as champions. Their odds, however, will drastically change depending on upcoming free agent Kawhi Leonard’s decision whether he will remain with the Canadian club or sign up with another team.

The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are both priced at +900 to emerge as champions. The Warriors have made it to five consecutive NBA finals but lost to the Raptors this past season. Golden State are facing the possibility that key players Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins will not return this season.
