The regular season has finally come to a close and the 2021 NBA Playoffs field is finally set. With playoff basketball finally upon us, the Brooklyn Nets (+210) enter the playoffs as the favorites to win the 2021 NBA Championship. However, five other teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers (+500), own favorable odds according to the latest NBA futures on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Western Conference has a tight race at the top with three teams, including the Lakers, entering the playoff tournament with odds less than +1000. The Lakers are the slim favorites with their +500 odds, despite entering the Play-In Tournament as the No. 7 seed in the West.

The Utah Jazz (+600) wrapped up the conference's No. 1 seed while the Los Angeles Clippers (+600) earned the No. 4 seed. Still, both trail the Lakers in terms of championship odds.

For the Eastern Conference, Brooklyn leads all other teams with their championship odds although the Philadelphia 76ers (+800) earned the conference's No. 1 overall seed. The Milwaukee Bucks (+800) finished at 46-26 and the No. 3 seed in the playoff bracket.

Here's a look at the updated NBA championship odds for every team in the playoffs on FanDuel Sportsbook.
