We’re a week away from the 2017-18 NBA season’s liftoff and the NBA Odds couldn’t be better on this early start. Even though Adam Silver announced that we can expect less back-to-back games this season, and therefore we have more time to come up with profitable picks, we still conjured a preliminary report on 6 profitable team worth looking into as the Western Conference heads towards the Playoffs in April 2018.

All-Out Brawl for the Top of the Western Conference

Houston Rockets

Chris Paul + James Harden equates to some real firepower for the Rockets. This is most definitely one of the teams that we expect to come out strong right off the gates and remain consistent throughout the conference. Even Golden State is going to have to watch out when going up against Houston. Stay sharp and bet on the Houstons taking over your average western teams and profit from some serious upsets when the time comes.

Championship Finals: +2500
Western Conference: +550

San Antonio Spurs

Everyone has something to say about the Spurs nowadays. Whether you doubt them or back their 61-21, the reality is that not a lot of teams were able to apply as much pressure to the Warriors as the Spurs did before some key injuries took effect. Here at YouWager we’re backing the Spurs to remain a top 2 team at the Western Conference. Keep San Antonio in mind when making your NBA picks for the season.

Denver Nuggets

If you’re looking to back a trending team with a promise, then the Nuggets is your squad. Jokic and Millsap make for a solid and consistent lead and the rest of the squad only makes the Nuggets seem deeper than ever. There’s a lot of tough competition in the West but there definitely is some profit in the Nuggets so make sure you look into them to boost your bankroll this 2017-18 season.

Stephen Curry Golden State Warriors

Minnesota Timberwolves

As it stands right now, the Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to do well, even taking into account the high competitive level of the West. However, even if they’re projected to do well, it’s hard to tell if they’re going to break their playoffs curse and take their first victory in that stage since 2004. Whatever the case may be, the Timberwolves surely hold some value ramping up towards the playoffs.

Golden State Warriors

Talk about high expectations. The Warriors have set the bar way too high and now they have to back it up with another solid performance. Making it out of the Conference is a given but the playoffs may prove a larger obstacle than most will anticipate. The Warriors remain strong as ever but the opposing teams are getting stronger and this 2017-18 NBA season might prove to be more competitive and entertaining than the past.

Championship Finals: +100
Western Conference: -278
