The 2021-22 NBA season is winding down with less than 10 games remaining in the regular season. The odds to win the NBA championship on FanDuel Sportsbook are tight at the top but still favor the Phoenix Suns (+300), who have the best record in the NBA (59-14).

The Memphis Grizzlies (+1900) have nearly secured the Southwest Division with the second-best record in the Association (51-23), but the Grizzlies have the eighth-longest odds to win the NBA Championship.

With the Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry (foot) now out until at least the beginning of the postseason, Golden State (+650) has fallen to third in the odds. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets (+550) regain the second spot despite sitting in fourth place in the Atlantic Division with the eight-best record in the Eastern Conference.

The Miami Heat (+1100) remain top championship contenders with the best record in the East at 47-26 and just a game better than the defending champions and Central Division-leading Milwaukee Bucks (+650) who are leading favorites to repeat as champs.

But the hottest team in the NBA is the Boston Celtics (46-28), whose championship odds are soaring since Jan. 1 with a 29-9 run. Boston is +950 to win the title after sitting near 65/1 to win the championship in early January. The Celtics are tied atop the Atlantic Division with the Philadelphia 76ers (+1200), whose odds surged to +550 after trading for James Harden in February but have since dropped to +1200.

The Utah Jazz (45-28) are Denver Nuggets (43-31) still quietly in the hunt with top-10 odds. But the LA Lakers and LA Clippers are both below .500 and have seen the biggest drop in odds among the early-year contenders with both teams now big long shots along with the improved Minnesota Timberwolves (+10000), who are 42-32.

Here are the updated NBA championship odds on FanDuel Sportsbook for the teams still in playoff position.
