NBA Championship odds: Each team's chances of making the playoffs

The Boston Celtics may have won 16 straight games already this season, but they're nowhere near the favorites to win the 2017-18 NBA Championship. 

Three teams -- the Celtics, Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors -- have more than a 99% chance to play in the postseason this year. Other near-guarantees include the San Antonio Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors.

After those powerhouses, the odds of teams making the playoffs, let alone winning the title, start to drop off significantly. At this point in the season, only seven teams have even a 1% chance of raising a championship banner. 

Can any team in the West get past the Warriors? Are we going to have a fourth straight Warriors-Cavaliers Finals, or can the Celtics or Rockets disrupt the new norm? Click through below to see how the NBA playoff picture is stacking up after a wild start to the season, via FiveThirtyEight
