For the first time this season, the Los Angeles Lakers have replaced the Los Angeles Clippers as favorite in BetAmerica’s NBA Championship market.

BetAmerica players have responded to the Lakers’ sensational 24-3 start to the season, moving their odds from +400 in October to their current quote of +300. The Clippers have eased from +300 to +325 during the same period.

“LeBron James and the Lakers can’t do much wrong at the moment and for the first time this season we’re now taking more bets for them than what we are for the Clippers,” said BetAmerica spokesperson Andrew Brown.

Milwaukee and Philadelphia are lurking

Currently on a league-best 18-game winning streak, the Milwaukee Bucks are third favorite in BetAmerica’s market and have remained steady at +400 throughout the season.

In other moves, Philadelphia’s strong start to the season has seen their odds shift from +650 to +550 while the Boston Celtics have shortened from +2000 to + 1600.

The biggest mover in the other direction is of course the Golden State Warriors, who have ballooned from a +1300 fifth favorite to +40000 cellar dwellers at BetAmerica after the early season loss of Steph Curry.
