DraftKings Sportsbook likes to provide us with a lot of useful sports betting information in the NBA. Most recently they provided us with the top 10 teams Sportsbook users are betting on to win the 2019-2020 NBA Finals. This list may not surprise you much, but it does shed some light on how a few teams are viewed by the public. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Top 10 Most Bet Teams to Win NBA Finals

By Handle Rank By Bets
By Handle Rank By Bets
LA Lakers 1 LA Lakers
PHI 76ers 2 PHI 76ers
LA Clippers 3 LA Clippers
MIL Bucks 4 MIL Bucks
BOS Celtics 5 BOS Celtics
HOU Rockets 6 IND Pacers
MIA Heat 7 HOU Rockets
IND Pacers 8 DAL Mavericks
DAL Mavericks 9 MIA Heat
DEN Nuggets 10 DEN Nuggets

The Philadelphia 76ers are the most surprising team at the top of this list, by far. Philly isn’t in a top 4 seed in the East and could end up having to make a title run entirely on the road all postseason, a place the Sixers have dreaded all season. Despite being the favorite to win it all, the Milwaukee Bucks sit as the fourth-highest bet on team to win the title. Bettors are still high on the Celtics and Rockets despite glaring holes in the front court. A notable team not on this list is the Utah Jazz, who have the depth and defensive mindset to make a playoff run.
