Celtics, Bucks new betting favorites to win 2023 NBA title

After a frenzy of NBA transactions, BetMGM’s updated title odds point to the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks as new favorites to take home the title in 2023.

The Golden State Warriors opened the offseason as favorites to repeat their championship efforts as +550 favorites. But the trade of Malcolm Brogdon at the Celtics and Joe Ingles at the Bucks, while both teams kept their cores intact, boosted both teams’ odds to +550 while the Warriors rose to +650.

The Clippers and Suns also saw their odds drop to +650 after opening at +700 and +900 respectively. The Lakers and Heat also improved their title odds, each falling from +1400 to +1100.

Not surprisingly, the biggest shift in odds came from Brooklyn, where Kevin Durant’s trade request dashed Nets bettors’ hopes. After opening at +700 last month, the updated odds are +3500.
