- Twelve NBA teams have never won a championship.
- The SuperSonics won an NBA Finals before becoming the Thunder.
- The Nuggets are still in the title hunt after making 2023 NBA Finals.
The NBA odds for making the playoffs are difficult enough, and winning a title can sometimes seem impossible, especially for some franchises.
Among the 12 teams that never won an NBA championship, the Denver Nuggets are still in contention for this 2023 playoffs. They look to maximize their NBA championship odds this season after making their first franchise NBA Finals appearance, sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.
As of June 1, Denver is the betting favorite at -700 to win the NBA title against the Miami Heat in the 2023 NBA Finals, as they now lead the series 1-0.
