After one of the most exciting NBA All-Star games in recent memory, the basketball world will once again turn its attention toward the rest of the regular season.

And now that we're officially past NBA All-Star Weekend, the latest odds to win the NBA Finals still favor the Milwaukee Bucks (+270), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Bucks have some stiff competition atop the odds though, as both the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers are right behind Milwaukee at +300.

Both the Lakers and Bucks are atop their respective conferences, while the Clippers are currently sitting in third in the West at 37-18. But after that top three, there's a pretty significant drop-off in the odds.

There's a three-way tie for the fourth-best odds, with the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and Houston Rockets all sitting at +1700. Interestingly, the Celtics are the only one of those three teams currently positioned to have home-court advantage in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

The Utah Jazz are just slightly behind these three at +1800.

The next tier of teams brings bettors another three-way tie, with the Denver Nuggets, Miami Heat and reigning champion Toronto Raptors all available at +2500.

Even though the Bucks, Clippers and Lakers have all built a pretty well-defined lead over the rest of the league, these odds will surely continue to shift as the season progresses.
