The odds that the 2020 NBA Championship heads to Los Angeles this postseason are strong, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Currently, the Los Angeles Clippers hold the best odds to win it all, at +330, with the Los Angeles Lakers not far behind at +440.

Making a ton of headlines this offseason, the Clippers went out and traded for Paul George, while also signing Kawhi Leonard to join Doc Rivers' team. The acquisition of these two made them immediate title contenders and also one of the most feared defensive units in the league.

While the Clippers stole the show, it was the Lakers that made all of the noise in the early goings of free agency, trading for All-Star big man Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans, in a trade that was a big shake-up for both teams. This rivalry in LA should feature some of the most competitive matchups of the season.

With the reigning MVP on their team, the Milwaukee Bucks hold the third-best odds to win it all, at +600, while the Philadelphia 76ers sit at +750. The road to the NBA Finals through the Eastern Conference is expected to run through one of these teams, with the East projected to be much weaker overall than the West.

The biggest movers since the last update are the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, who each improved by 200 in the odds to +1200 and +2500, respectively. The Utah Jazz saw the biggest drop, falling from +1200 to +1700.

With the league featuring power duos instead of trios this season, it should be a fun, competitive one to watch, with the overall odds moving throughout.
