NBA Championship Odds: Los Angeles Lakers Most Backed Team This Month to Win in 2023

The Lakers had an abysmal 2022 season. Bettors are expecting a bounce back in 2023 though. Possibly because of Kyrie Irving. One team stands above the rest in the Kyrie Irving Next Team odds, and that is the Los Angeles Lakers. Just over a month into the NBA offseason, rumors have pegged the Lakers as a team looking to make significant roster changes before the start of 2023. With LeBron James in the latter part of his career, the Lakers need to improve their roster in order to make a run at another NBA title in 2023. At the early stages of the offseason, bettors believe Los Angeles will make significant changes, and their NBA Championship odds will improve. Let's take a look at the latest 2023 NBA Championship odds and betting.

With the trade rumors swirling for the first month and a half of the NBA offseason, bettors are relying on the reports of the Lakers making a big splash via a trade. Over the last 30 days, the Lakers are the most backed team to win the NBA Championship next season. If you want to get in on the action, you can bet the Lakers right now at FanDuel at +1800 (Bet $100 to Win $1800) to win the championship next season.

Last week, it was reported that the Lakers were in the lead to land Kyrie Irving in a trade. As a result of this report, bettors have been rushing to get their bets in on the Lakers for next season. Despite having seven teams in front of them in NBA Championship odds, the Lakers have received 12% of all bets over the last month. With a possible big 3 of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Kyrie Irving, it's tough to argue against why people would believe in that group.

Surprisingly bettors aren't as high on the defending champion Golden State Warriors to repeat next season. The Warriors are second on the odds grid, priced at PointsBet +700 (Bet $100 to Win $700) behind the early favorite at Caesars, the Boston Celtics at +550 (Bet $100 to Win $550). Golden State has received just the fifth most bets to this point.
