Thursday's NBA trade deadline did not disappoint.

If you missed any of the deadline's transactions, we had you covered with every finalized deal around the league.

A lot of NBA Finals contenders, especially in the Eastern Conference, were extremely active over the past few days.

With the dust settled and the deadline behind us, let's take a look at who now has the best odds to win the NBA Finals.

(All numbers are per Action Network's Darren Rovell and SuperBookUSA.)

10 best odds to win the NBA Finals
Team Odds to win
Golden State Warriors 2/5
Milwaukee Bucks 10/1
Boston Celtics 10/1
Toronto Raptors 10/1
Philadelphia 76ers 10/1
Houston Rockets 12/1
Oklahoma City Thunder 16/1
Denver Nuggets 30/1
Los Angeles Lakers 40/1
Utah Jazz 40/1

The Warriors, as you would expect, retain the top spot as favorites to win the NBA Finals, but after that is where things get interesting.

The top-four teams in the Eastern Conference now all have the same odds to win the Finals at 10/1.

The Bucks brought in sharpshooting forward Nikola Mirotic, the Raptors added centre Marc Gasol and the 76ers acquired forward Tobias Harris (among others) to increase their chances at winning the title.

As for the Celtics, they elected to stay quiet at the deadline - their only move was sending reserve guard Jabari Bird, who hasn't appeared in a game this season, to the Atlanta Hawks to free up a roster spot for a potential buyout candidate.

The next three best odds come from the Rockets, Thunder and Nuggets.

It's a surprise to see the Nuggets, who have seesawed with the Warriors for the top spot in the West all season, come in as the eighth best odds to win The Finals. James Harden's Rockets added some wing depth in acquiring Iman Shumpert while the Thunder stayed put with their current roster.

The Lakers and Jazz close out the top-10 at 40/1 odds. Los Angeles did not reel in Anthony Davis like they had hopes of doing, but they did get Reggie Bullock and Mike Muscala while the Jazz did not make any moves amid the Mike Conley trade rumours.

The Portland Trail Blazers (200/1) and Indiana Pacers (300/1) have the next best odds outside of the top-10 with the Miami Heat, New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves, Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets all tied at 500/1.
