The Phoenix Suns championship odds are not as high as you may think. According to Bovada, the Suns currently have 100/1 odds to win the championship. The long odds probably have something to do with the uncertainty of Eric Bledsoe’s situation, though even if his deal was secured for next year I wouldn’t think they’d be too much higher than they are.
One thing that sticks out to me is the Los Angeles Lakers having much better odds (66/1) than the Suns do. The Lakers will be an improved team next season, but I think having higher championship odds than the Suns is a bit much. Teams that have the same 100/1 odds as the Suns are the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets and New Orleans Pelicans.
Atop the list to no one’s surprise is the Cleveland Cavaliers with 5/2 odds, ahead of the reigning NBA champion San Antonio Spurs who sit in second with 4/1 odds. You can check out the rest of the list here.
