Amidst the outbreak of COVID-19, sporting events worldwide are being either played in front of an empty arena or cancelled altogether.

Maybe the biggest such example was the suspension of the NBA season on Wednesday night. This isn't to say the season is over, however, but the league will be on hiatus for the foreseeable future.

If and when the season resumes, taking a look at the odds can still help paint a clearer picture of where each team stands going forward. Odds for each team to win the NBA Finals are still available on FanDuel Sportsbook, and as the season goes on hiatus, the Bucks are still the favorites to win it all, at +240.

Of course, there's some stiff competition from the Western Conference as well, with the Los Angeles Lakers (+270) and Los Angeles Clippers (+340).

There's a huge drop-off following those three, though, with the Houston Rockets (+1200) still getting some respect in the West and the Boston Celtics (+2000) and Toronto Raptors (+2400) ranking fifth and sixth, respectively.

The Utah Jazz (+2400) and Denver Nuggets (+2500) round out the list of teams getting +2500 odds or better.

It's remains to be seen exactly how the rest of the NBA season will play out (if at all), but we know for sure that it's not going to follow the usual format and schedule. This could cause some big shifts in the odds as we receive more updates.
