The Milwaukee Bucks have been tearing it up early this season. They’ve hit a 13-game winning streak, and have beaten Chicago, Detroit, and Atlanta twice apiece during their win streak. It isn’t just NBA Power Rankings that the Bucks have seen themselves climb in, they’ve also seen their futures odds grow better with each game they win. They averaged about +538 to win the 2020 NBA Playoffs on November 24th from various sportsbooks and now have shot up to +450 on December 3rd, good enough for third-best odds in the league. With Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the way, the Bucks have a good shot at making some noise come time for the postseason.
Their conference foe, the 76ers are falling off in the opposite direction, however. The Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers will meet for an exciting Christmas Day showdown later this month, it will be their first matchup of the season against one another. As for their title odds, individual games and more, get all of the latest NBA odds in real-time from SBD (SportsBettingDime). In late November Philly was sitting at a good +650 but has since dropped to a respectable +900 due to their struggles on the road, they currently have a losing record of 5-6 away from home, which is concerning.
In the Western Conference, we see that the Staples Center is the place to be if you want to be favored to win the 2020 NBA Playoffs. Both the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers are tied for first, both right at +300 to win the title. We also see a struggling Jazz team, who were caught in some controversy earlier this week when they took on LeBron and the Lakers. Speaking of the Jazz, they were at a +1200 bet in early November, and a month later they sit at +1800 and will more than likely fall further down. If you can’t win games on the road, the Jazz are 4-8 in away games, there’s no hope for a team to win a 7-game series come Playoff time.
