Westgate Las Vegas has released their preliminary odds for the 2019 NBA Finals champions and the Boston Celtics figure prominently near the top of the list:

Notably, Boston is currently behind the Philadelphia 76ers among Eastern Conference teams. Westgate explains this as being careful when LeBron James is a free agent.

Murray went on to explain that if James signs with any non-Philadelphia team, the Celtics will vault the Sixers into the top spot in the East.

Boston will return Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis from injuries to bolster a team that came within one game of reaching the NBA Finals in 2018. Key rotation players Aron Baynes and Marcus Smart are free agents, but early indications are that Boston will attempt to keep both in green for the 2018-19 season.

Odds for all 30 NBA teams are below:
