The Lakers are one of the heavy favorites to win it all and this odds boost only increases the likelihood that bettors will continue dumping money into the purple and gold. So far, the betting splits indicate that the Lakers are garnering a huge chunk of money put down. This odds boost, however little it may seem, might be enough to convince players to go with LeBron James and the Lakers over the Milwaukee Bucks (+250) or Los Angeles Clippers (+300).
Philly and Denver aren’t favorites to win it all, but they are both legitimate contenders. The Sixers are going to enter the NBA restart with a healthy Ben Simmons and a fully rested Joel Embiid. The Nuggets are returning with a skinny Nikola Jokic who should be in great shape for a long run into the summer.
A championship run would appear less likely for Denver given the brutal nature of the Western Conference, but Philly has no easy path to the NBA Finals. The Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, and Toronto Raptors are all dangerous teams with championship aspirations. And even though Embiid, Simmons, and the Sixers might be best equipped to knock off Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks in a seven-game series, that is a task that’s much easier said than done.

This odds boost is no accident by FoxBet, which is currently available to bettors in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Obviously, the Lakers are the outlier, but there are plenty of Sixers fans in Pennsylvania and New Jersey who can take advantage of this special offer. Likewise, Coloradoans can jump on these boosted odds for their hometown Denver Nuggets. Colorado legalized online sports betting in May.
