Congratulations to the Denver Nuggets for winning its first NBA title in franchise history on Monday night in a 94-89 win at home over the Miami Heat. With Denver winning it all, it is never too early to talk about the 2024 NBA Championship odds for next season.
Currently, the Milwaukee Bucks have the same odds as the Denver Nuggets at +460 on FanDuel Sportsbook to win the 2024 NBA Championship.
2024 NBA Championship Odds: Bucks Open As Co-Favorites With the Nuggets
There are already talks about a potential back-to-back for the Nuggets, but it is hard to do it. There has been a different NBA Champion for the past five seasons and it appears as if the days of having an NBA dynasty are over. The Milwaukee Bucks being tied with the Denver Nuggets in the 2024 NBA Championship odds speaks volumes of how great Giannis Antetokounmpo is an NBA player.
Nikola Jokic is currently one of the best players in the NBA and also just won an NBA Finals MVP. The Milwaukee Bucks just won the NBA title two seasons ago against the Phoenix Suns in six games. It appears as if Milwaukee has regressed and gotten old quickly, and they will make the necessary changes to compete for an NBA title moving forward.
Jrue Holiday will be around. However, will Khris Middleton pick up his player option for the Milwaukee Bucks, sign a long-term contract, or not come back? It remains to be seen. In addition, Brook Lopez will be a free agent and seems to have plenty of good basketball left. Bobby Portis Jr. and Grayson Allen are also important players on this basketball team moving forward.
2024 NBA Championship Odds: Who Else Is in the Running?
The Boston Celtics have the second-best odds to win the NBA Championship at +500. Boston has been in the Eastern Conference Finals in five of the last seven seasons, with only one NBA Finals appearance to show for it. Will the Celtics break up the core of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart, or will they keep it together thinking results will finally happen?
This franchise has faced the Milwaukee Bucks a couple of times before in the NBA Playoffs. It will probably happen once again in the immediate future.
The Phoenix Suns have the third-best 2024 NBA Championship odds at +700. They have Kevin Durant and Devin Booker as their dynamic duo, but they have to figure out what they’re doing with Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton. Phoenix hired a new head coach in Frank Vogel. They also need a much better bench around them than they did after Durant was acquired via trade from the Brooklyn Nets.
