Christmas Day has passed which means that the NBA season is about to kick into full gear. We're starting to get a picture of the contenders and pretenders .

The Association is constantly changing, and keeping up with who looks best can be difficult. Every week, I'll be providing my NBA Power Rankings for each team in relation to their NBA title odds

Here's how things stand after the first few weeks of action. All odds listed are via WynnBET.

1. Golden State Warriors (+400, LW: No. 2)

The Warriors were short-handed against the Suns, had a less than stellar Steph Curry game and still won. They get the top spot this week.

2. Phoenix Suns (+700, LW: No. 1)

Phoenix lost the battle of the top teams so the Suns get dropped this week.

3. Utah Jazz (+1000, LW: No. 3)

Utah needs a signature this season. The league won't see the Jazz as the top team until they beat one of the top teams or they get a deep playoff run.

4. Brooklyn Nets (+275, LW: No. 4)

Brooklyn has been hit hard by COVID and is relying on James Harden to keep it afloat. Still, the Nets look powerful on offense.

5. Chicago Bulls (+3000, LW: No. 5)

Chicago is almost close to being fully healthy. Until then, DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine will keep the team afloat.

6. Milwaukee Bucks (+750, LW: No.7 )

Milwaukee just got Giannis Antetokounmpo out of the protocol and the Bucks are back rolling. They got a good win against the Celtics and are a team to fear.

7. Miami Heat (+1600, LW: No. 9)

Kyle Lowry is keeping the ship afloat, even with the two stars missing. Once Miami gets healthy, watch out.

8. Cleveland Cavaliers (+10000, LW: No. 6)

The Cavaliers are still playing good basketball and are going to in and out of the top four in the East all season long.

9. Memphis Grizzlies (+6000, LW: No. 8)

Memphis is rolling and seems like it will have home court advantage. If the Grizzlies really start to click, they could displace the Jazz as the third best team in the West.

10. Denver Nuggets (+2500, LW: No. 11)

Denver is only .500, but that is all it needs to be in the West to be close to the top. We also shouldn't turn our heads to what Nikola Jokic is doing.

11. Philadelphia 76ers (+2500, LW: No. 10)

Philly's issue right now is consistency. Until the Sixers can string together wins, they won't break deep into the top 10.

12. Charlotte Hornets (+20000, LW: No.13 )

Charlotte is one of the most potent offensive teams in the league. It's the defense that is failing it right now. The Hornets need to pick up the slack on defense and then they can be taken seriously.

13. Los Angeles Clippers (+2500, LW: No. 12)

The Clippers just lost Paul George for about a month. We'll see what they can do without George creating offense every night.

14. Boston Celtics (+6000, LW: No. 16)

Boston had a bad loss against the Bucks and Jayson Tatum is going into protocol. Yet, Boston looks like it can make a run to solidify its playoff spot.

15. Dallas Mavericks (+5000, LW: No.15 )

Dallas remains in the middle of the league. Nothing is impressive. Nothing is alarming. The Mavs exist.

16. Washington Wizards (+10000, LW: No. 22)

Washington hasn't been fantastic, but the Wizards have maintained and are still over .500, which is an accomplishment.

17. Los Angeles Lakers (+1200, LW: No. 14)

Los Angeles needs to make a major change or else it will be stuck in the middle.

18. Minnesota Timberwolves (+20000, LW: No.17 )

Minnesota is another team that is ravaged by COVID. The Wolves have their top three players out in the protocol and are just hoping to steal wins until they come back.

19. San Antonio Spurs (+50000, LW: No. 20)

San Antonio's young pieces are beginning to gel and show individual growth. They are in the No.10 seed in the West and would be in the play-in right now.

20. New York Knicks (+10000, LW: No. 25)

The Knicks actually won on Christmas Day and all is well for this week.

21. Atlanta Hawks (+5000, LW: No. 18)

Atlanta has a myriad of players out due to COVID. It's hard to get a sense of who the Hawks are at half strength, but they were blown out by the Knicks.

22. Toronto Raptors (+20000, LW: No. 19)

Toronto has to drop in the standings after getting ran off the court by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Raptors have been hit hard by COVID and these are the effects.

23. Sacramento Kings (+50000, LW: No. 21)

The Kings are dropping in the standings and are now two games back from the play-in. If they can stay within striking distance, they can get back to the postseason behind De'Aaron Fox.

24. Indiana Pacers (+20000, LW: No. 26)

Indiana is staying around .500 and is just staying the course.

25. Portland Trail Blazers (+10000, LW: No. 28)

Portland looked like it was going to go off the rails, but it has gotten a few wins to help it maintain. The Blazers are a team to keep an eye on.

26. New Orleans Pelicans (+50000, LW: No. 24)

New Orleans is 6-4 in its last 10 games and are still staying within striking distance of the No. 10 seed and the play-in.

27. Houston Rockets (+100000, LW: No. 23)

Houston is the worst team in the West record-wise, but the Rockets have some talent on their team and can compete with the teams in the bottom third.

28. Oklahoma City Thunder (+100000, LW: No. 28)

The Thunder have played well recently, but are creeping towards the bottom of the conference in wins. It doesn't seem far fetched to see them being in the No.15 seed soon.

29. Orlando Magic (+500000, LW: No. 29)

Orlando has just two wins in the last 10 games. The Magic seem destined at this point to be picking in the top three in this year's draft.

30. Detroit Pistons (+500000, LW: No. 30)

Detroit still has the worst record in the league and can't get anything going offensively.
