These Teams Have the Best Odds to Win the 2022 NBA Season

The 2020-2021 NBA season isn't yet over but some people are already focused on the season that's ahead. In many ways, the 2022 season is going to be the first normal NBA season in a couple of years. Hopefully, the coronavirus pandemic will be mostly a memory and hopefully, the plague of injuries bothering the association will be addressed. Many stars - like Klay Thomspon - are set to return next season and that alone promises to make things very, very interesting.

Already, there are predictions on who will come out triumphant when next season concludes. According to sports betting site PointsBet, there is a good chance that some familiar teams will sit atop the pack when all is said and done.

PointsBet finds that the Brooklyn Nets have the best chance to conquer the 2022 season. They have placed the team at +250, which puts them as the clear frontrunners. Behind them, the Los Angeles Lakers sit at +650, while the Bucks and Golden State Warriors are +800 and +900 respectively.

Including the Warriors is just another reminder of how formidable that team will be in the months ahead. With Thompson on the court again, Steph Curry and Draymond Green have every reason to believe their squad could go all the way.

Surprisingly missing from the top four are the Phoenix Suns, who are just two games away from winning this year's trophy.

Of course, these are all predictions and a whole lot can change before next season kicks off. As we have learned this year, just one injury can change everything in a single instant.
