The Denver Nuggets are no longer the defending champions, but that doesn't mean that Vegas isn't high on them in the 2024-25 season.

Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets were knocked out of the playoffs in the second round by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2023-24 season, ending their quest for back-to-back titles, but it seems like oddsmakers believe they're still the best in the West.

Outside of the Boston Celtics, who are the favorite to win the title at +290 odds, Denver is second on the list and the only team with 8/1 odds or shorter (currently +800) to win it all next season.

It makes sense, as Denver's core of Jokic, Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr. and Aaron Gordon are all under contract, but the Nuggets could be in danger of losing free agent guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope -- the team's best guard defender -- in the offseason.

If that happens, the Nuggets' odds in the futures market may take a hit.

Still, Denver has the edge on Minnesota, Oklahoma City and even the Western Conference champion Dallas Mavericks going into next season.
