Toronto Raptors Championship Odds (+40000)
While the Raptors certainly turned heads across the NBA with their acquisition of RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley from the Knicks, in the eyes of the oddsmakers this move has hindered their championship odds rather than helped them.
With the Raptors title chances dropping from the already longshot odds of +34750, they now sit at +40000 odds to win the 2024 NBA Championship after making their recent trade.
Even though this move made sense for both sides, it’s clear that the Raptors made this decision with an eye on the future rather than for competing in the present.
As they introduce two young players who can make an impact on both sides of the court, the Raptors will look to continue improving upon their fast-paced offensive game plan with the inclusion of Barrett and Quickley.
With both players having proven themselves capable of playing at a high tempo and making defences pay with routine three-point plays, the newest Raptors are sure to fit seamlessly into their environment.
Keep a close eye on the developing situation in the Great White North, as RJ Barrett looks to put on for his hometown and country, bringing the Raptors back into title contention in the near future if everything works according to plan.
New York Knicks Championship Odds (+5000)
With their sights set on making a deep run in the 2024 NBA Playoffs, the Knicks are now loaded with terrific two-way talent after adding OG Anunoby into their rotation.
One of the most highly-sought after players on the NBA trade market, Anunoby is the perfect fit for any modern NBA scheme. Possessing top-tier defensive skills to go along with reliable shooting and standout athleticism, Anunoby can be easily inserted into any lineup and produce positive results.
Set to take on an increased defensive role with the Knicks, Anunoby will be used to take pressure off All-Star duo Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle as he guards the best player on the opposing team, allowing their top-scorers to place their focus on getting buckets.
Since adding Anunoby onto their roster the Knicks have seen their 2024 NBA Championship odds slightly increase from +5250 to +5000. These odds could continue to increase throughout the season as the new-look Knicks continue to impress as Head Coach Tom Thibedeau continues to generate positive results thanks to his hard-nosed defensive game plan.
