Currently on a league-best 17-game winning streak, the Milwaukee Bucks are the hottest team in the NBA. Their odds to win the NBA Finals have improved to +480 (from +550 two weeks ago), according to FanDuel Sportsbook, which trails only the Los Angeles Clippers (+320) and Los Angeles Lakers (+390).

The Bucks are tied for the best record in the league, at 23-3 with the Lakers, but Milwaukee has an NBA-best +13.4 point differential.

The Bucks also have the reigning MVP in Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has improved on his range during the offseason to average 1.6 made 3-point shots on 31.9 percent shooting from deep, making him that much more lethal. This, in part, is what also has him leading in the MVP race.

At one and two in the Western Conference, the Lakers and Clippers are battling for the top spot, making it look like the road to the NBA Finals in the west will indeed go through LA.

Rounding out the top five in odds to win the NBA Finals is the Philadelphia 76ers (+700) and Houston Rockets (+800). The reigning NBA champions, the Toronto Raptors, currently have +4200 odds to repeat.
