The NBA inches closer to returning, which will happen July 30 in Orlando, Florida. If you missed the details, we’ve got you covered here, including schedules for all 22 teams, play-in scenarios and more.
There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the end of the season, most notably who will actually play, but the three favorites before the COVID-induced hiatus are still the favorites now: The Bucks are at +240 at FanDuel, while the Lakers (+260) and Clippers (+320) are close behind.
After those three teams, it’s a steep drop down to the Rockets at 13/1, and they’re the only team below 20/1. In that next range are the Celtics (20/1), Raptors (24/1), Nuggets (25/1), Heat (27/1) and Sixers (27/1).
The biggest change over the last few weeks has been the Brooklyn Nets, who initially saw their odds move from the 200/1 range all the way up to 50-60/1 when the season was suspended. There were speculations that the hiatus could give time for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to get healthy, but reports are that they will not play in Orlando. As a result, the Nets are back down to 160/1.
While the season restart will feature a unique format — all 22 teams will play eight final regular season games and then a potential play-in scenario for each conference’s 8-seed — the playoffs will remain the same. It will be segmented by conferences with seven-game series each round.
