NBA 2022/23 Winner Odds – Boston Celtics backed to end NBA title drought in 2023
- Boston are favourites to win 2023 NBA Finals
- Celtics 21/4 to claim basketball crown with Stake
- Defending champs Golden State 31/5 behind 28/5 Phoenix
The Boston Celtics are backed to end a 15-year wait to be crowned NBA champions in 2023.
The Celtics have not lifted the trophy since a 4-2 series win over the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008.
They went agonisingly close last season though, making it to the finals where they lost 4-2 to Golden State.
The bookmakers are predicting another deep postseason run for Boston next season though, and make them the favourites to go all the way.
Boston are 21/4 to win the NBA title with Stake, while the Warriors are 31/5 to win back-to-back titles.
Phoenix are the team currently separating Boston and Golden State in the outright betting.
The Suns ended the 2021/22 regular season with the best record in the entire league, but that did not translate to playoff success.
They suffered a surprise 4-3 series defeat to Dallas but are 28/5 to put that disappointment behind them to win the NBA Finals in 2023.
The Los Angeles Clippers failed to get past the Play-In Tournament last season as injuries took their toll.
They are a contender for 2023 though, with Stake pricing them up at 31/5 ahead of 2021 champions, the Milwaukee Bucks, at 34/5.
The Miami Heat are 101/10 to claim the NBA crown, while the Los Angeles Lakers are 54/5 despite a miserable 2021/22 campaign that saw them miss out on the playoffs.
The Brooklyn Nets are out at 31/1 amid reports that star man Kevin Durant wants out, while the Minnesota Timberwolves are at 38/1 after landing Rudy Gobert.
The Chicago Bulls, who held on to Zach LaVine in free agency, are 57/1 after ending their playoff exile last season.
