A marketplace once barren of perceived value may be more than a three-team race these days with teams like the Rockets, Celtics and Wizards making some late regular-season noise as the NBA playoffs are now just a month away. Let’s look at fresh NBA championship odds from Bovada.

<h2>Rockets, Celtics, Wizards Seeing Money In NBA Championship Futures</h2><p>What once looked like a three-team race for the NBA championship has suddenly turned into a potential reality where maybe seven or eight teams could have a semi-realistic shot of winning four straight NBA Playoff series. ... if everything goes their way. And a look at the current <a href="">NBA Championship marketplace</a> and its numbers reveals that sentiment with James Harden (+110 to win NBA MVP, <a href="">BetOnline)</a> and the upstart Houston Rockets, Isaiah Thomas (10/1 to win NBA MVP, BetOnline) and the Boston Celtics, and John Wall (50/1 to win NBA MVP, BetOnline) and the Washington Wizards have seen money in Futures Books.</p><p> </p><p><img src="" style="height:401px;width:400px" /></p><p>Here are the latest NBA championship odds from <a href="">Bovada</a> with the opening odds from 10 months ago in parentheses from the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook:</p><p>Golden State Warriors -120 (3/2)</p><p>Cleveland Cavaliers +250 (5/2)</p><p>San Antonio Spurs 6/1 (6/1)</p><p>Houston Rockets 12/1 (60/1)</p><p>Boston Celtics 18/1 (20/1)</p><p>Washington Wizards 33/1 (100/1)</p><p>Los Angeles Clippers 40/1 (16/1)</p><p>Toronto Raptors 50/1 (25/1)</p><p>Utah Jazz 50/1 (80/1)</p><p>Oklahoma City Thunder 75/1 (8/1)</p><p>Atlanta Hawks 100/1 (40/1)</p><p>Memphis Grizzlies 100/1 (80/1)</p><p>Indiana Pacers 150/1 (100/1)</p><p>Chicago Bulls 200/1 (40/1)</p><p>Detroit Pistons 200/1 (100/1)</p><p>Miami Heat 200/1 (25/1)</p><p>Milwaukee Bucks 200/1 (100/1)</p><p>Dallas Mavericks 300/1 (100/1)</p><p>Denver Nuggets 300/1 (200/1)</p><p>Portland Trail Blazers 300/1 (60/1)</p><p>New Orleans Pelicans 500/1 (60/1)</p><p> </p><p><img src="" style="height:217px;width:372px" /></p><p> </p><h2>Taking A Shot Fading Warriors, Spurs In West Seems Worth It</h2><p>As you can see, Stephen Curry (50/1 to win NBA MVP, BetOnline) and Golden State are still prohibitive favorites, but the knee injury to Kevin Durant and a certain lackadaisicalness and fatigue seems to be permeating Golden State’s fairly thin-looking roster. Can the Dubs even get out of the West this year? And over in the East, LeBron James (10/1 to win NBA MVP, BetOnline) and the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers look like they could possibly be had in a 7-game series if everything goes right, with Washington and Boston looking like the two best candidates to match up man-to-man with Cleveland (-275 to win Eastern Conference, BetOnline).</p><p>Big movers since last update include the Rockets (12/1 from 25/1), Wizards (33/1 from 200/1), Mavericks (300/1 from 5,000/1), Nuggets (300/1 from 1,000/1), Pelicans (500/1 from 1,000/1) and Heat, who went from no-chance-to-make-the-playoffs (9,999/1, SuperBook) to their current 200/1. And Miami still won’t win jack, right?</p><p> </p><p><img src="" style="height:220px;width:400px" /></p><p><br /><strong>NBA CHAMPIONSHIP FUTURES BOOK PICK:</strong> Houston Rockets 20/1 (5Dimes)</p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="">Bet On NBA Futures At SBR's Top Sportsbooks</a></h2>
