Biggest #NBATradeDeadline Winners per the latest #NBA Finals odds via @FDSportsbook— The Duel (@TheDuelSports) February 7, 2019
Hornets +36000 ➡️ +25000 ( 11000)
Jazz +6000 ➡️ +5000 ( 1000)
Bucks +1400 ➡️ +1200 ( 200)
76ers +1400 ➡️ +1200 ( 200)
Warriors -195 ➡️ -210 ( 15)
The Charlotte Hornets had a potential trade for Marc Gasol in the works and had that gone through, this sort of shift would make sense, but it fell apart and Gasol went to Toronto. So, Charlotte didn't make any moves and the Hornets' odds improved.
The Hornets jumped all the way up to +25000, which is still a huge longshot, but that jump might also have something to do with the fact that multiple teams were eliminated from contention in the odds at the same time.
The Warriors saw a small odds increase as they continue to win and with a couple Western Conference teams punting on the season, and Golden State just tightened its grip a little bit more.
But the real winners of the NBA trade deadline were the Bucks and 76ers, even if the odds suggest it was the Hornets and Jazz.
