Here in the USA, we used the “American” format. This works by showing the odds as a three (or more) digit number and a plus or minus sign before it. Often (but not always) the favorite will be shown with a negative number, while the others are positive. In instances where all teams have positive odds (or more than one has negative odds), then the favorite is the team with the smallest odds.
Let’s take a look at an example.
● Los Angeles Lakers -100
● Los Angeles Clippers +275
● Utah Jazz +800
● Denver Nuggets +1100
● Dallas Mavericks +1500
In this case, the Los Angeles Lakers are the favorite because they have the lowest NBA West Conference odds and because they’re the only team with a -. In contrast, out of the five teams, the Dallas Mavericks are the least likely to be the winner of the Western Conference NBA.
The odds also allow us to understand how much we can expect to receive if our bet is successful. A $100 bet on the Lakers would yield a $200 payout (comprised of $100 of winnings and your $100 stake), while a $100 bet on the Utah Jazz would payout $900 ($800 plus $100).
As soon as the 2020-21 NBA Finals have been decided, the markets for the following season open. Sportsbooks will indicate which teams they believe have the best chances with their odds to win the Western Conference NBA.

Each team’s NBA Western Conference odds will fluctuate before and throughout the season as new information becomes available. Factors like injuries, the NBA Draft, trades, and game results will influence the NBA West Conference odds that each team has over time.
The performance in the previous season can often influence the opening odds from the previous season, though this isn’t always the case.
The Utah Jazz had the best record in the conference last year, but were knocked out of the playoffs by the LA Clippers 4-2 in the semi-finals. After that performance, the Jazz were given decent NBA West Conference odds when markets opened for the 2021-22 season with oddsmakers believing they could make it all the way this season.
The Golden State Warriors finished 9th last season, earning a play-in position but being knocked out by the Lakers and the Grizzlies. With a mediocre season, they were given mediocre NBA West Conference odds when markets opened.
Having dominated the conference in the last decade, the Warriors shouldn’t be completely written off.
In 2020-21, the Houston Rockets finished dead last with a 17-55 record. Sportsbooks, therefore, had little choice but to give them long NBA West Conference odds when markets opened.
The Denver Nuggets had a good run last season, finishing third in the conference, and reaching the semifinals. However, a 4-0 defeat to the Phoenix Suns who went on to win the conference saw their run come to an abrupt stop. They’ve still got decent NBA West Conference odds for this season though, so watch this space.
The Dallas Mavericks clinched a division title last season but were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the LA Clippers. They’ve earned reasonable opening NBA West Conference odds for this season, so they’re definitely contenders.
Having won the conference finals last season, the Phoenix Suns have earned decent NBA western conference finals odds for 2021-22. Whether they can remain in contention is another matter, so keep a close eye on them in the upcoming games.
When looking at NBA West Conference odds, it’s also helpful to consider the recent history of the conference. A team’s past performance doesn’t guarantee their future success, but ones that have a proven track record of winning conference titles are likely to have what it takes to do it again. This is why handicappers pay close attention to past performance when calculating Western Conference odds.
The Golden State Warriors have been the most frequent winner of the Western Conference NBA in the last decade, though the Lakers added to their all-time record in 2019-20 and the Phoenix Suns took their third-ever title last season.
