The top contenders for the 2021-22 NBA title have been well-placed, and Personally I bet on Milwaukee Bucks to win NBA title after the All-Star break.
The Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets and Bucks are the top four on the latest odds, but there aren’t really many teams that bookmakers think can win the title, as only five have Odds shorter than +1200 at WynnBET.
If you’re looking for a long-range team to bet on to win the title, I have three teams that could be worth betting on as we get ready for a crazy comeback to the NBA knockouts.
The Chicago Bulls have weathered a storm of injuries this season, and they’ll likely bring back all three of Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and Patrick Williams after the season.
Despite the injuries, Chicago is the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference entering the final stages of the season and it has a legitimate MVP candidate in DeMar DeRozan.
The Bulls are still sixth in odds among Eastern Conference teams, behind the Heat, Nets, Celtics, Nets and Bucks.
I think the right combination in the first round can prompt the Bulls to run away, and I think they’re worth it considering their current position in the game.
It’s definitely a long shot, as the Nuggets are the No. 6 seed in the West as we get ready to step out of the All-Star break, but it could be a play when Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr return competition. Nikola Jokic’s post-season.
The Nuggets have the easiest eight fixtures left this season, and they could move up the leaderboard to claim home in the first round.
If Murray and MPJ return, you could argue that Denver is the third best team in the West, since the last time they were on the roster, the Nuggets made it to the Western Conference finals.
I trust Jokic to keep this team from being eliminated in the play-inand I wouldn’t be surprised if they win the first series even if Murray and MPJ don’t come back.
The Memphis Grizzlies remind me a lot of last year’s Atlanta Hawks, as they were a young and growing team led by a young keeper in Ja Morant.
The Grizzlies have a chance to take advantage of the Warriors without Draymond Green and the Suns without Chris Paul to move up the Western Conference rankings, but even now they’re sitting in third place.
The West is the top heavyweight team, but I don’t think people recognize the Grizzlies as the third best team in the West.
