Western Conference Championship Odds (Updated)

While there are some exciting possibilities in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the options in the Western Conference looks far more predictable. Which is to say that this is the Warriors world and the rest of the teams are just living in it.

While it is true that the San Antonio Spurs at +500 have better odds to win the conference than any non-Cavs team in the East, they are still a pretty big underdog to the Warriors. Kawhi Leonard is a legit superstar in this league, but there are questions about LaMarcus Aldridge, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili in a playoff series against a younger, more athletic team. The Spurs are always going to be tough and they have the best coach in the league, but it just feels like their is an athleticism gap here that will cost them against the Warriors or Rockets in a playoff series.

The Houston Rockets +1570 are definitely an interesting team as they are the only team that can possibly beat the Warriors in a shootout. They need a lot of things to go right for them to do that, but they can do it. James Harden is one of the best offensive players in the NBA and he makes it work with Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon firing from three. Patrick Beverley brings the defense and deadline addition Lou Williams should help with the bench scoring. I like this team better than I like the Spurs to beat the Warriors, but I still don’t like anyone to beat the Warriors.

Don’t even bother asking about the Clippers +2500. They have lost ten straight regular season games to the Warriors dating back to 2015 and they just aren’t going to get it done. They will get Chris Paul back and make some noise as long as he and Blake Griffin stay happy. DeAndre Jordan will rebound like crazy and J.J. Redick will nail a bunch of threes. It doesn’t matter. Something crazy would have to happen to the Spurs, Warriors AND Rockets and that is just not worth betting on. I feel better about the Jazz +4200 than the Clips. Blow this team up already.

This is still the Golden State Warriors -305 year. They are really playing great together and should finish in the high 60s in wins again this year. They are unselfish and don’t care who gets the points. That’s good for a college team to do, it’s amazing for a team with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant. There will be a buyout guy added for sure. There will be a time in the playoffs when they are getting out rebounded and it looks bad, but this team will get it done. They are dangerous and they are the best collection of talent we have seen in years. Be afraid, be very afraid.
