The 2018 National Basketball Association season ended just like the 2017 season did. In fact, it finished just like the 2015 season as well. The Golden State Warriors are NBA Champions for the third time in four seasons. Ironically, the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third time in four years as well. Now, the Warriors come into the 2019 season as the favorites to win their fourth ring. Let’s take a look at the 2019 NBA Championship Odds and Super Early Predictions.

Golden State Warriors +125Really, if Kevin Durant comes back to the Warriors – and he will – the Warriors are the head and shoulders favorites once again. Golden State is loaded with four All-Stars, and they would be crazy to break it up. They would be searching for their third straight NBA title, and fourth in five seasons.
Houston Rockets +500The Houston Rockets, if they keep their roster the same will be the second favorite to win it all. They would once again be behind Golden State. Keep in mind, the Warriors had to win the final two games of the best of 7 series to eliminate the Rockets. Houston is also in the mix to garner LeBron James in free agency.
Philadelphia 76ers +500The 76ers are going to be really good again in 2018 – 2019. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and company are ready to roll. The 76ers lost in the Elite 8 round of the NBA Playoffs to the Boston Celtics. Can the 76ers land LeBron James? That will be the question all off-season, and their odds would skyrocket if they did.
Boston Celtics +600The Boston Celtics have Brad Stevens as their head coach and will get Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward returning for the start of next season.That’s after reaching the Eastern Conference Finals and holding a 2-0 lead over the Cavaliers this season. Things will get interesting in Boston, especially if LeBron heads West.
Los Angeles Lakers +700This is strict because LeBron James is rumored to be going West. LeBron would be crazy to go to Los Angeles and play with that Lakers squad. But, crazier things have happened. He would have to go up against Golden State BEFORE the NBA Finals, which does not seem like a LeBron move to be made.
