Russell Westbrook Trade: Lakers Favorites to Win NBA Title

Following this year’s Finals, the Nets were quickly installed as 3/1 favorites for next season’s NBA championship. 

However, the draft day trade between the Lakers and Wizards that sent Russell Westbrook to L.A. has shaken up the odds board. 

SportsBetting now lists the Lakers as favorites with 3/1 odds. Brooklyn has the second-best odds, and then there’s a big gap between those two and the rest of the field. 

Prior to the Westbrook trade, the Lakers had 5/1 odds while Milwaukee had 7/1 odds.

Bradley Beal’s Wizards went from 80/1 to 125/1 following the trade.
