In a matter of days, the defending champs went from wounded animal ready to wander off into the sunset to Western Conference betting favorites.

The Denver Nuggets are now +150 at DraftKings to reach the NBA Finals and the second-favorite (+400) to win the title.

After Denver lost the first two games of the series against the Minnesota Timberwolves at home, the Nuggets were around +450 to advance. The Nuggets won the next two games as road underdogs and regained home-court advantages as they head back to the mountains for Game 5.

Denver is now a -160 favorite to eliminate Minnesota and keep alive their quest for a repeat.

The Boston Celtics have been championship favorites all postseason and for most of the regular season. Their title odds are currently -130, as they lead their series with the Cleveland Cavaliers, 2-1.
