2022 NBA Championship odds: Who is favoured to win next year's title?

Even though we have yet to crown a champion for the 2020-21 NBA season, odds have already been released for the 2022 NBA title.

While the current NBA Finals feature the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks, neither team is favoured to come out of their respective conference next season. The Bucks are tied for the fifth-highest odds for next year's championship, while the Suns file in right behind them at seventh.

To little surprise, the Brooklyn Nets are the favourites to take home the 2022 NBA championship, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors and LA Clippers.

For Toronto Raptors fans wondering where their team stands going into next season, you'll have to scroll past half of the league before finding them at the 16th-best odds to win the title, wedged between the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers.
