NBA Championship Odds: Celtics and Bucks Co-Favorites After Blockbuster Trades

The NBA offseason has been full of blockbuster trades, and the latest moves have shaken up the championship odds. The Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks are now co-favorites to win the 2024 NBA title, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Celtics acquired Jrue Holiday from the Portland Trail Blazers in a trade that sent four players and two draft picks to the Blazers. Holiday is a four-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion, and he gives the Celtics a much-needed defensive boost.

The Bucks also made a major move by trading for Damian Lillard from the Trail Blazers. Lillard is one of the best players in the NBA, and he gives the Bucks a dynamic scorer and playmaker.

The other teams with the best odds to win the championship are the Phoenix Suns (+550), the defending champion Denver Nuggets (+600), the Los Angeles Lakers (+1300), and the Golden State Warriors (+1700).

The Suns are coming off a season in which they reached the NBA Finals, but they lost to the Celtics in six games. The Nuggets are led by two-time MVP Nikola Jokic, and they have a deep and talented roster. The Lakers are rebuilding, but they still have LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The Warriors are back in the mix after missing the playoffs last season.
