Challenging them for the top spot in the East is the Philadelphia 76ers (+750), who return their young core of stars complimented by an offseason addition of their own, All-Star Al Horford.
Rounding out the top five are the new look Houston Rockets, with their star-studded backcourt of James Harden and Russell Westbrook. At +800, they are the only other team with less than 10-to-1 odds.
Overall, though, the message is clear. This season, the road to the finals goes through LA.
