Did you get a bet down in back in early June for the Phoenix Suns to take home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in 2019? You did didn’t you? You lucky dog.

Well if you loved the Suns back when they were 200-1 to win it all, you’re going to love the value you can now get on a Phoenix championship. Six weeks after that opening line the Suns are now 750-1 to capture their first title.

Last month there were nine teams with worse odds. Today there are just three. You can get the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets at 1500-1, and the Sacramento Kings are at the bottom of the list at 2000-1.

Along with the Suns the Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks are listed at 750-1.

The Golden State Warriors remain the favorites. The offseason additions of DeMarcus Cousins and Jonas Jerebko have moved their odds of a three-peat from 5-4 to 10-17. They’re followed by the Boston Celtics at 6-1, the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers at 10-1, and the Philadelphia 76ers at 18-1.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, who were 30-1 prior to the departure of LeBron James, are now 500-1.

Entering last season the Suns were 500-1 to win it all. But fast forward a year and we’re absolutely certain that Devin Booker is going to be named an All-Star in 2019 and we know we have a sure-fire future Hall of Famer in Deandre Ayton. Yep, #TheTimeline is going to be accelerated and Keith is going to pay off his house. I hope you’re similarly blessed. Full odds here.
