Warriors, Bucks Enter 2019 NBA Playoffs as Favorites

The Warriors remain extremely short favorites to win the 2019 title, to no one’s surprise betting on sporting events is more popular than ever – especially the NBA playoffs. The more interesting debate is in the Eastern Conference, where sportsbooks are finally buying into the Bucks’ historic 60-win season. It wasn’t until mid-March that Milwaukee became the betting favorite in the East, finally surpassing the Raptors. At full strength, they have been borderline unbeatable, going 56-16 with Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup (and just 4-5 without him). The top-ten in the odds are as follows entering the final days of the regular season:

Golden State Warriors-220
Milwaukee Bucks+675
Toronto Raptors+1000
Houston Rockets+1100
Philadelphia 76ers+1500
Boston Celtics +1600
Denver Nuggets+1700
Oklahoma City Thunder+3200
Portland Trail Blazers+4000
Utah Jazz+6500
