Clippers Franchise Reaches New Heights As NBA Title Favorites

  • The Los Angeles Clippers (+400) are favorites to win the 2020 NBA Championship for the first time since 1985 after adding Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
  • The Clippers have only entered the regular season at odds shorter than 10-1 once since 1985 and that was in 2014-15 at 9-1.

2019-20 was shaping up to be just another season at the Staples Center for the “little brother” of the franchise with 16 NBA titles and LeBron James heading into the offseason … but don’t tell that to Clippers owner Steve Ballmer.

Even after the Lakers traded for Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Clippers still had odds of under 10-1 to win the title, mostly due to the fact that bookmakers were protecting themselves from exactly what ended up happening: Kawhi Leonard signing with LA’s other team.

The Clippers were as high as 16-1 to win the 2020 NBA Championship at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook and are now the title favorites after adding both Leonard and Paul George via trade in the morning hours of July 6.
