Latest Nuggets Odds: Championship, Western Conference & More
Despite their dominance, the Denver Nuggets are not currently favored to win the next NBA championship. That distinction belongs to the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics, both of whom on the board at FanDuel Colorado at +550. The Nuggets are the third choice at +550, mostly because the competition has improved in the West.
However, recall that there are Colorado sports betting promos that could boost those odds, and in turn, your bankroll.

Current NBA Championship Odds: 2023-2024 Season
Oddsmakers like Caesars Sportsbook Colorado may be giving gamblers an opportunity for the Nuggets Championship Odds if this season plays out the same way last season did.
The thing is, all of the Nuggets' main competition in the West improved, and the Boston Celtics and Milwauee Bucks made big moves: Boston picking up Kristaps Porzingis and Jrue Holiday, and Milwaukee landing Damian Lillard.
Nikola Jokic MVP Odds
Because of his dominance in the NBA Finals, "The Joker" is the preseason favorite at sportsbooks like BetMGM Colorado to win the NBA MVP award for the third time in four years, and it is difficult to bet against him.
The guy came within two-tenths of an assist of averaging a triple double last season, something only Oscar Robertson and Russell Westbrook have done before.
- Nikola Jokic: +430
- Luka Doncic: +550
- Giannis Antetokounmpo: +650
- Jayson Tatum: +750
- Joel Embiid: +850
Nuggets 2023-2024 Season
The Nuggets return pretty much the same team that won the NBA Finals in five games, with the biggest departure being Bruce Brown's exit for Indiana in free agency; the biggest addition being Justin Holiday from the Dallas Mavericks. Denver finished last season 53-29, which was only the fourth-best record in the NBA.
That is because the East was weak and remains that way, while the competition out West most definitely got tougher. Finishing first overall is still the goal, and as we learned with Miami going from a No. 8 seed to the finals, the postseason is a whole different animal. But if the Nuggets stay healthy, their status as defending champs certainly makes team the team to beat.
