“I’d say it’s more wide-open at the top now than it was in previous seasons,” Adam Pullen, Caesars Sportsbook assistant director of trading, said in a press release (h/t David Purdum of ESPN). “Usually with the NBA, you can count the title contenders on one hand. Here, you can look at 10 teams that you can make a legitimate case for.”

The Warriors opened the 2021-22 season with 10-1 odds to win the NBA title, which put them behind the Los Angeles Lakers, Nets and Bucks.

The teams with the longest shot to win a championship next season are the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets and Detroit Pistons, who all open with +50,000 odds.
