After two months, the NBA regular season will start, with two games on the opening night, on Tuesday, October 19, and another 11 on Wednesday, the following day.

It was possible to see all of the franchises practicing and playing in preseason matches in past days. But if some teams have reasons to celebrate those games and want to keep doing the job in the entire season, others don’t want to repeat the terrible retrospect.

Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, and Golden State Warriors were the preseason best teams, with at least three victories.

On the other hand, Cleveland Cavaliers, Washington Wizards, Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, Denver Nuggets, Charlotte Hornets, Orlando Magic, New Orleans Pelicans, Los Angeles Lakers Clippers surprised negatively, with three losses or even more.

But it doesn’t mean the best preseason teams are favorites for the NBA 2021-22 title. Last year, Phoenix Suns went 0 – 4 in the preseason, while Milwaukee Bucks went 0 – 3, and both reached the Finals. Better for the Bucks, winning its second NBA championship.

Favorites for the season

According to Bovada, Brooklyn Nets is the favorite to be the Champion at the 2021-22 NBA season, with +250 odds, followed by the Lakers, with +375 odds, and Milwaukee Bucks, +900 odds.

The favorites for the MVP race are Luka Doncic, with +400 odds, Giannis Antetokoumpo, +650 odds, Joel Embiid, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry, with +700 odds. At the same time, the Rookie of the year must go for Jalen Green, with +250 odds, Cade Cunningham, +300 odds, and Jalen Suggs, +700 odds.

Spoelstra and Nash are the Coaches of the year prize favorites, with +900 odds, followed by Donovan and Williams, with +1000 odds.


On the opening night, Brooklyn will face Milwaukee, at Fiserv Forum in a levelheaded match, with no favorite, for a while. And Golden State will travel to Los Angeles to face the Laker at the Staples Center. For Bovada, the home team is the favorite, with -175 odds.

Brooklyn Nets

With Kevin Durant, James Harden, Patty Mills, Blake Griffin, the return of LaMarcus Aldridge, one of the best NBA teams, start the season as the main favorite and will be very disappointing if they don’t reach at least the Finals. Last year, the franchise stopped on the Conference Sem-finals after a 4 – 3 loss for Milwaukee. Depending on the vaccine situation, the Nets can also have Kyrie Irving, but it is still uncertain, adding even more to the roster.

Los Angeles Lakers

Lebron James, Russel Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Anthony Davis, DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard, etc. The Lakers have 60 all-star selections and run until the end for the NBA title with these players. It will be interesting to see how the team will play in the regular season marathon with many stars.

Milwaukee Bucks

Current NBA Champion, Milwaukee will try a back-to-back title. If the other teams suffered a lot of injured players last year, the rivals return stronger and must be a more challenging year. But led by Giannis, Middleton, and Holiday, the team will try to repeat 2020-21 season.
