2022-2023 NBA Conference Championship Odds & Betting Futures
As the playoff picture in the NBA has evolved over the past few months, the list of NBA conference championship odds for this season accurately reflects what we see in the chart. However, the top seeds in each conference could face serious challenges in the postseason, and we still don’t know who will represent each conference in the NBA Finals. Here we look at the odds of winning every conference in the NBA this season.
2022-2023 NBA Eastern Conference Odds
In the Eastern Conference, only three teams have a chance to win both the conference and this year’s NBA Championship Chances. These teams are the Milwaukee Bucks, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics. They are the top three teams in the conference standings and have a huge advantage over the rest of the competition.
Boston, of course, represented the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals last season. They’ve only improved from there, with Jayson Tatum emerging as a legitimate MVP candidate. But the Bucks have championship experience, having won the title in 2021. Philadelphia might be a tougher sell since they didn’t make a conference finals in Joel Embiid’s era, but all three of those teams could reasonably make it to the finals.
2022-2023 NBA Western Conference Odds
In the Western Conference, it’s much more open as to which team will make it to the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns, Denver Nuggets, LA Clippers, Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies all have a shot at winning the conference this year. And if you also count the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers among the contenders, you have up to eight teams with a realistic chance of winning the West.
The key to winning the Western Conference will be efficiency in the early playoff rounds. Teams that have to play grueling seven-game streaks will have a harder time in later rounds than teams that can progress in four or five games. Conserving energy during the regular season will also be important, as much as basketball fans hate the term “load management.”
