Online Sports Betting’s Weekly NBA Power Rankings (November 13 Edition)
5. Atlanta Hawks
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 33/1
Same as last season, Atlanta sports a sparkling W-L record (8-2 by our count) but no one seems to take ATL seriously as a threat for some playoff progress. The Hawks have been lighting up opponents for 104.4 points-per-game this year, a total that’d be the best in the Association if the Warriors weren’t torching everybody they faced. One area where Atlanta needs to improve is on the boards. They’re ranked nearly dead last in the league in that department.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Hawks at Celtics – Friday
4. Oklahoma City Thunder
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 9/1
It’s tempting to look past the regular season and wonder what will become of Kevin Durant, isn’t it? Well, there’s still a campaign to go and OKC’s doing alright so far. The Thunder appear to have bounced back from a rough stretch that saw Ls racked up versus Houston, Toronto and Chicago. Frustrations were taken out in blowouts of Phoenix and Washington. Getting back to Durant, his injury woes continue and a hamstring issue will keep him on the shelf for about a week. It looks like Russell Westbrook will shoulder the load once more.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Thunder at Grizzlies – Monday
3. San Antonio Spurs
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 21/4
The Spurs continue their ageless run. although the new blood’s certainly helped. LaMarcus Aldridge led both sides in scoring when he returned to Portland to hand his old team a 113-101 victory on Wednesday. Additional good news for Spurs fans: Kawhi Leonard escaped injury after going down in a troubling way in the game’s 4th quarter. The degree of difficulty for the Spurs this week is pretty low. A homestand with Philly, Portland and Denver coming to visit is what’s on the agenda.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Trail Blazers at Spurs – Monday
2. Cleveland Cavaliers
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 3/1
Imagine how good they’ll be when Kyrie Irving’s back. Cleveland’s morphed into a beast after that season opening loss to Chicago. The Cavs haven’t lost since and King James has been putting up over 25 points a night. Speaking of LeBron, he’s only 77 points away from passing Jerry West on the all-time scoring list. There’s a strong chance he’ll pull it off this week which features Cleveland playing New York, Milwaukee (twice) and Detroit.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Cavaliers at Pistons – Tuesday
1. Golden State Warriors
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 2/1
Maybe the NBA should just shut things down and crown Steph Curry the NBA MVP in November. #30 is continuing to play basketball at an insane level and has been comfortably above the 30 points-per-game mark in his output. No title hangover here, just 100-84 beatdowns of Memphis. Outstanding.
