Odds to Win the NBA Eastern Conference: Bucks Back On Top

Even the NBA’s Eastern Conference can sometimes be seen as the”diminished” convention on account of the crappy teams at the base but there’s still some dominant teams at the top like the Milwaukee Bucks, that are favored to win the East crown for the 2019-20 NBA season.
Online sportsbook BetOnline gets the Bucks as +200 faves to acquire their first Eastern Conference title in franchise history. Observing the Bucks will be the Philadelphia 76ers (+275), Boston Celtics (+700), Brooklyn Nets (+800) and Toronto Raptors (+800) to round out the top five.
After leading the NBA standings and receiving a top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs this past year, the Milwaukee Bucks have been ready to be back in the mountaintop. For starters, they’ve arguably the best player in the league in Giannis Antetokounmpo, who’s the Fave To Acquire MVP for another year in a row.
In addition they have a fairly profound roster despite having to allow some key players such as Malcolm Brogdon and Nikola Mirotic walk. They re-signed Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez while incorporating Wesley Matthews to their current core. With that group, the Bucks owned the ideal point differential in the NBA last year while also holding competitions to 43.3 percent shooting in the field.
Up until Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final??vs Toronto, the Bucks have been in the driver’s seat to win. Now that Toronto doesn’t have Kawhi Leonard, I believe Milwaukee is your best bet to make it from the East.
The two main challengers??to the Bucks winning the Eastern Conference would be Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers, who retooled from the offseason. The Sixers will be +275??while the Celtics are +700, to win the East.
The Sixers may have dropped Jimmy Butler but were able to include Josh Richardson in the Heat in a sign-and-trade while at the same time adding an extra stud big man in Al Horford. Richardson can shoot from heavy and guard perimeter players while Horford may play center and also become a safety valve if anything happens to Joel Embiid.
I’m still somewhat worried about their deep shooting because shedding JJ Redick has been a major blow, but if they stay healthy and maybe Ben Simmons grows a jump shot, they should be a force in the East.
The Celtics are intriguing mainly because they won’t have Kyrie Irving within their locker area to kill the mood. Boston might have lost Al Horford into the Sixers but added Kemba Walker, that surely will not pout in media conferences whenever the Celtics lose.
However, the only means the Celtics can win the Eastern Conference comes down to their own stable of swingmen at Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward.
Tatum and Brown regressed last year the way in which they develop must be a key focus for bettors looking to invest in the Celtics and also after a promising run to the Eastern Conference final in 2017-18.
I expect them to be better this season as those will??find the vast majority of the offensive appearances but if Brad Stevens can’t work out the proper rotations, it might be another disappointment in Beantown.
