Who’s going to win the NBA title?

The Lakers are among the favorites as long as Anthony Davis and LeBron James can stay healthy and share the floor—but that’s far from a given, and they’re entering the playoffs as a surprisingly low seed. Their crosstown rival Clippers are arguably the best team in the Western Conference thanks to their perimeter shooting and potent wing combo of Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Other contenders include the Nuggets, who shocked the Clippers in the playoffs last season; the Suns, who have been a fixture near the top of Western Conference standings; and the Jazz, who have been unbelievable thanks to a combination of three-point shooting and lockdown defense.

In the East, the 76ers are grappling with whether their superstars, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, fit alongside each other, but they’ve got talent up and down the roster, their shooting has improved, and they’ve been outstanding as an overall unit. Their biggest issue from here on out is Embiid’s health. The Bucks will always have a seat at the table as long as they feature Giannis Antetokounmpo. And although they are almost allergic to defense, it’s impossible to ignore the Brooklyn Nets and their big three of Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving — even if they’ve hardly played together.

Here are the 10 teams with the best chance of winning it all according to FiveThirtyEight:

TeamChampionship Probability
Los Angeles Clippers23%
Philadelphia 76ers22%
Utah Jazz19%
Brooklyn Nets15%
Los Angeles Lakers6%
