The 2020 season brings many excitements. The fight for the title will be great to watch because the competition is fierce and all teams are as motivated as ever. Although we can’t exclude any team as a potential winner, we have picked a couple of teams that are most likely to win the championship. If you picked your favorite and are willing to place a bet, you can visit NetBet to check out some of the latest odds.
Houston Rockets are the first team in the shortlist for the championship favorites. They are currently on the second spot, right behind the Mavericks in the Southwest Division. Their schedule for the next few games is looking tough. They are facing Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2 out of the 4 matches. Nevertheless, the Rockets are a formidable team with great odds of winning the championship.
With 3 Championships won, 9 conference titles, and 5 division titles, Philadelphia 76ers are a team with an excellent history. This year, the team had an excellent streak of 5 wins before losing to Phoenix Suns 114-109. Even though the loss came as a small surprise, the team is not ready to give up and are keen on going to the top.
The Bucks are currently leading the Central Division with 5 wins and 2 losses. They are currently on a 3-game winning streak and are looking sharp. They managed to win the last season’s division title, but are on a big drought when it comes to the championship trophy. They’ve only managed to win it once and that was back in 1971. Nevertheless, the team is strong and as we mentioned earlier, the competition is fierce and we cannot exclude anyone.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers are dominating the Western Conference at the moment. With a 6-game winning streak and just one lost game, the team is marching towards the top. Their last game was against Chicago Bulls, which they managed to win after being 19 points behind. LeBron James, Anthony Davies, Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard, and the rest of the team are in perfect form, which is why the team is a formidable opponent and one of the biggest favorites to win the championship.
Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard was a big refreshment to the team. When he announced that he will be moving to LA, everybody thought that the Lakers is his next destination. Instead, he chose the Clippers. The team had a slow start with 2 lost games, but they are getting back on track after winning their last two matches against the Spurs (103-97) and Utah Jazz (105-94).
