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

This ranking excludes the Thunder, Rockets, Trail Blazers, Kings, Pacers, Magic, Pistons, Wizards and Knicks.They are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention and WynnBET has taken down NBA title odds for three of these teams already.

Here's how things stand with around 10 games left. All odds listed are via WynnBET.

1. Phoenix Suns (+275)

The Suns are ready to show the league they weren't a fluke.

2. Memphis Grizzlies (+1200)

Memphis continues to win without Ja, but they should be worried about when he's coming back.

3. Boston Celtics (+1000)

Boston's defense and offense are beginning to align, which is a scary thing for the rest of the league.

4. Miami Heat (+1200)

Miami seems to have gotten back on track after a small skid. If the Heat can get a good matchup in the second round, they can be a Finals team.

5. Dallas Mavericks (+2500)

I'm not sure there's anybody playing "better" than Luka Doncic right now. It's getting scary in Dallas.

6. Milwaukee Bucks (+550)

The Bucks have a few statement games left in the season. However, we all know this is a team judged by how they perform in the late rounds of the playoffs. The Finals run is incoming.

7. Golden State Warriors (+650)

Golden State has looked extremely shaky in the second half of the season. If Steph Curry isn't back soon, the Warriors could get upset in the first round.

8. Philadelphia 76ers (+900)

Harden and Embiid have a cupcake schedule to finish the season. Can they push the 76ers to the top of the conference?

9. Denver Nuggets (+2500)

Nikola Jokic is gaining steam as the MVP, and the Nuggets are rounding into form as well. It looks like they will avoid the play-in tournament, which is as big an accomplishment for Jokic as it is the team.

10. Toronto Raptors (+7500)

Toronto is healthy and has a great coach on the sideline. The Raptors have experience and a great foundation to make a run in the playoffs.

11. Chicago Bulls (+7500)

Chicago can't be in the top 10 until they beat good teams. Until then, this looks like a gentleman's sweep in the first round waiting to happen.

12. Brooklyn Nets (+550)

The Nets are struggling to win games consistently. Still, they have Kevin Durant so I feel the need to put them a little higher than average.

13. Minnesota Timberwolves (+6000)

Minnesota is creeping up by process of elimination. The T-Wolves still have to prove themselves, but this final week is a good chance to do that.

14. Utah Jazz (+3000)

Utah might slip up and end up in the play-in tournament. The Jazz haven't looked fresh recently and that will bite them.

15. Cleveland Cavaliers (+10000)

Cleveland is now a below average team, as far as the playoffs go. Jarrett Allen needs to hurry back because the Cavs are in trouble right now.

16. Los Angeles Clippers (+5000)

Paul George's return is something special for the Clippers. They have a legitimate chance to make a deep run now.

17. Atlanta Hawks (+12500)

As long as Trae Young is healthy, the Hawks have a chance to do something special.

18. Charlotte Hornets (+25000)

Charlotte looks better now that Gordon Hayward is back, but I just don't know if I trust them as much as Brooklyn or Atlanta.

19. New Orleans Pelicans (+20000)

New Orleans is the best of the worst at the bottom of the Western Conference. The Pels were able to comeback agains the Lakers and get a win, which should lock them into the play-in.

20. San Antonio Spurs (+100000)

Dejounte Murray's sickness worries me a little bit, but the Lakers are such a mess that the Spurs will be in the play-in.

21. Los Angeles Lakers (+6000)

The Lakers are talking about injuries like they weren't a mess when healthy. It's time to move onto the offseason.
