Behind an ever-evolving and rolling mass of new NBA records, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors continue to stand head and shoulders above the rest of the league’s title contenders in the eyes of odds makers.

Curry buried a 32-foot three-pointer to clinch the Warriors 121-118 overtime victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday night, tying the NBA mark of 12 threes in a single game and pushing Golden State to the best 58-game start in NBA history. The Warriors also became the first team to sew up a playoff berth this season, with 24 games still left on their schedule.

As a result of that win, along with the Warriors rolling success throughout the season, they’re now 2/3 odds favorites to win the 2016 NBA Finals, according to the latest futures from, though they have slightly dipped from 10/11 odds late last month.

The Cleveland Cavaliers still remain the pick out of the Eastern Conference at 3/1, but the stacked Western Conference also includes the the San Antonio Spurs at 15/4, the Thunder at 9/1, and the Clippers at 22/1.

Hoping to be the first team to claim back-to-back titles since Miami in 2013, the Warriors are also tacitly in pursuit of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls all-time regular season record of 72-10.

The Cavs, who are certainly looking forward to a rematch of last year’s Finals against the Warriors, and forward LeBron James have bounced between consistent and dominant of late but their odds actually improved from 13/4 to 3/1 over the last month.

Cleveland’s lost three of its last four games after winning five straight just before and after the All-Star break, and shooting guard J.R. Smith called the team out for its up and down play.

The Spurs, on the other hand, would garner the same praise Golden State’s received if it were any other season. San Antonio sits only 3.5 games back of the Warriors for the West’s No. 1 seed, a small gap that could be closed or narrowed when the two sides meet three more times before the close of the season.
