Online Sports Betting’s Weekly NBA Power Rankings (November 6 Edition)
5. Atlanta Hawks
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 40/1
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before… The Atlanta Hawks are off to an impressive start (5-1) as they look likely to dominate the Southeast Division for another year. It’s a bit difficult to be bullish on their playoff prospects considering they’re the Hawks, but as long as they’re enjoying balanced scoring and big games from Jeff Teague and Al Horford, they’ll be a major regular season threat.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Wizards at Hawks – Saturday
4. Los Angeles Clippers
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 8/1
The Clip Show continues to dazzle in Los Angeles, although they suffered their first L of the year courtesy of a 112-108 defeat at the hands of Golden State. Cheer up, Clips fans. EVERYBODY loses to the Warriors these days. Things have been going relatively swimmingly otherwise. Blake Griffin is close to averaging a double-double per game and the club’s averaging a robust 107.8 points a contest. DeAndre Jordan’s 13.4 rebounds-per-game would be the best total in the league if Pistons center Andre Drummond wasn’t collecting nearly 20 boards a night.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Rockets at Clippers – Saturday
3. Toronto Raptors
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 33/1
The Raptors flamed out in an ugly way last postseason, but they seem to have bounced back in 2015-16. The NBA’s only Canadian club is now a pristine 5-0 with impressive victories over Milwaukee, Dallas and Oklahoma City under their belt. Guard Kyle Lowry is also morphing back into his former high quality play. #7 leads the league in steals with 2.80 per contest and hovers around 20 points and 7 assists a night.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Raptors at Heat – Sunday
2. Cleveland Cavaliers
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 3/1
It’s hard to picture the Cavs not scoring squatters rights in the Top 5 this season. Cleveland still aches for the return of Kyrie Irving, but LeBron, Love and Matthew Dellavedova (really!) have been keeping the Cavaliers at elite squad status. The Cavs have won four straight following their disappointing season opener loss to Chicago and could see that streak grow against some underwhelming competition this week.
Intriguing Showdown Coming Up This Week: Jazz at Cavaliers – Tuesday
1. Golden State Warriors
Odds To Win The NBA Championship: 7/2
Steph Curry has been operating on a whole other level this season and when you’re the reigning league MVP that’s saying something. The Warriors guard is averaging close to 36 points-per-game as Golden State’s steamrolled the competition with an average 117.6 scoreboard total a night. Their 5-0 record isn’t the subject of a cupcake schedule, either. They’ve topped Houston, Memphis, New Orleans (twice) and the Clippers while scoring 111 points or more in every single outing. That 119-69 win over the Grizzlies should give every team in the league nightmares.
