Oklahoma City Thunder — Northwest Division winner (+550)
The Thunder have gone from being the youngest 👶 team in NBA history to one of the most exciting in the league. Oklahoma City improved by 16 wins from two years ago to last season, and now add Rookie of the Year candidate (+225) Chet Holmgren. The 7-footer is ready to hit the ground running with the rest of the Thunder’s talented starting lineup.
Headlined by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is +1600 to win NBA MVP, the Thunder have only one team they need to leap to win this division — the defending NBA champion Nuggets. But there is always a possibility of a championship hangover for Denver to start the season. I expect the young Thunder to shoot out of the gates on fire, with their odds to win the division shortening with each October victory.
