The Pistons are currently on the outside looking in of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, three games behind the eighth-place 76ers.
Prior to the trade, Detroit was listed at +25000 to win the NBA title at 5Dimes. Now they’re at +21000, meaning their implied probability has improved slightly from 0.40% to 0.47%.
The Clips’ odds were barely affected, going from +30000 to +31000 following the move.
In another year, a trade of this magnitude would likely have caused a much more significant market shift. But with such a top-heavy league led by the Warriors, even trades involving perennial All-Stars like Griffin have very little effect on the overall championship picture. — Danny Donahue
