The Brooklyn Nets have emerged as the second odds-on favorite to win the NBA title behind the Los Angeles Lakers, per Alex Schiffer of The Athletic.

According to Schiffer, the Nets have emerged as a favorite due to the possibility of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving returning when the season resumes.

“The belief that Durant and Irving could return this season has made its way to Las Vegas as sports betting organizations have seen a spike in wagers for Brooklyn to win the NBA Finals, if the league resumes this summer. Since the season was suspended, only the Lakers have had more bets placed on them to take home a title,” Schiffer reports.
