The Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns are looking at the favorites to win the NBA title 2021-22 according to the first odds published by the sportsbooks on Tuesday.

Leading the pack as the favorites for the Larry O’Brien Trophy next summer are the Brooklyn Nets at +210. The Nets lost a seven-game series to eventual champion Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals last month.

The Suns eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of this year’s Western Conference playoffs, but it’s LeBron James’ team that has the best title odds in the West for next season, according to DraftKings.

PointsBet ranks the top three in the same order: Nets (+250), Lakers (+650) and Bucks (+800), and the Golden State Warriors are tied with the Suns in a tie for fourth at +900.

At +475 through DraftKings, the Lakers are ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers (+800), Golden State Warriors (+1200) and Suns (+1400). Golden State missed the playoffs due to a loss to the Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies in the entry tournament, but the Warriors await the return of guard Klay Thompson and are No. 7 in the 2021 draft.

The Suns eliminated the Clippers in the 2021 conference finals.

Philadelphia was the top seed in the Eastern Conference entering the 2021 playoffs, but the 76ers have only 1,600+ in DraftKings to claim the championship with uproar on the roster and the future of 25-year-old point guard Ben Simmons is unclear. The Sixers lost to the Atlanta Hawks in a second-round series last month.

At the back of the NBA DraftKings title odds chart, the Detroit Pistons own No. 1 in next week’s draft and share +50,000 odds with the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets.
