A month ago the Sportsbook Bovada released their latest betting lines for the NBA season.
The Washington Wizards were not high on their list after all that has transpired in the NBA this off-season.
The team was listed with 50/1 odds to win the championship and third in the East for the 2017-18 season.
Now Bovada has released their odds for all NBA teams to win their respective conference championships. This is coming a day after the Wizards kicked off their training camp for this year. No surprise, the Cleveland Cavaliers were the overwhelming favorites coming in at 2/3, followed by the Boston Celtics and then Washington in third at 12/1.

These latest odds factor in all transactions this off-season including the latest move by Dwayne Wade to reunite with LeBron James.
Despite the new pieces in place for the Celtics they still face a tough task to take the East back, according to Bovada, as the season transpires.
This is just another oddsmaker that believes that the Cavaliers and Celtics are going to be in firm control of the East this season. Washington has not jumped into the upper tier of the East just yet even with their Eastern Conference Semi-Finals run last season.
Washington is maintaining consistency from last year’s line-up to 2017-18 arguably better than any other team in the NBA. Interestingly enough, the Wizards odds entering training camp are not much higher than the young Milwaukee Bucks who come in at 16/1.
Last season, Washington finished seven games higher than the Bucks including making it one round farther in the NBA Playoffs.
