The Western Conference once again looks like the story of one team: the Golden State Warriors. They had the highest win total entering the season and they have the most stacked roster in the NBA, possibly ever. They are a favorite for a very good reason and will very likely meet the Eastern Conference winner in the Finals. That said, anything can happen between now and June and there are some interesting odds here.
The NBA Division Odds are out and we already covered the Eastern Conference division odds, now we’ll tackle the West. Last year we saw the Rockets and Warriors almost laughably win their divisions. The Warriors had a 16-game advantage over the second place team and the Rockets had 17-game advantage over the next best team. Those two divisions don’t look to change much, but the Northwest is a different story. Only two games separated the first and fifth place team in this division last year and that will likely happen again this year. Let’s take a look.
