As we near the one-month mark of the 2019-20 NBA season, certain teams and players have excelled or underperformed relative to their initial outlooks, causing some shifts in futures odds.

Here's how the updated title, MVP, and Rookie of the Year prices have moved since the end of free agency.

Title odds

Team Previous Current 
Lakers 4-1 5-2
Clippers 7-2 5-2
Bucks 6-1 13-2
76ers 8-1 7-1
Rockets 8-1 12-1
Nuggets 16-1 16-1
Jazz 12-1 16-1
Celtics 25-1 25-1
Heat 100-1 60-1
Raptors 100-1 60-1
Mavericks 100-1 80-1
Trail Blazers 50-1 80-1
Nets 50-1 100-1
Spurs 50-1 100-1
Pacers 50-1 100-1
Magic 200-1 200-1
Bulls 200-1 200-1
Hawks 300-1 200-1
Suns 1000-1 300-1
Kings 200-1 300-1
Pistons 300-1 300-1
T-Wolves 1000-1 300-1
Thunder 500-1 1000-1
Pelicans 100-1 1000-1
Warriors 12-1 1000-1
Knicks 1000-1 2000-1
Hornets 1000-1 2000-1
Wizards 1000-1 2000-1
Cavaliers 1000-1 2000-1
Grizzlies 1000-1 2000-1

Yikes, Golden State. That's what happens when a team already decimated by injuries loses an MVP hopeful in Steph Curry and has to depend on Draymond Green to carry the team.

The Warriors have the NBA's worst record at 2-10 heading into Thursday's action. A team that had been bailed out of half-ass defensive efforts by lights-out shooting no longer has an offensive identity. Now the Warriors are just dead last in defensive efficiency and have nothing to compensate for it on the other end.

Raise your hand if you thought the Thunder would have better title odds than the Warriors one month into the season. That's right, keep 'em down.

I'd actually buy some Bucks stock at 13-2 right now. They're No. 1 in the league in defensive efficiency and No. 1 in points per game. They've played the toughest schedule so far and get the Knicks, Hornets, Hawks, Bulls, Pistons, and Cavaliers in nine of their next 12 contests.

MVP odds

Player Previous Current
Giannis Antetokounmpo 7-2 9-4
James Harden 9-2 4-1
Anthony Davis 10-1 5-1
Kawhi Leonard 12-1 7-1
LeBron James 12-1 8-1
Luka Doncic 50-1 10-1
Joel Embiid 25-1 18-1
Nikola Jokic 10-1 20-1
Kyrie Irving 50-1 40-1
Donovan Mitchell 50-1 40-1
Karl-Anthony Towns 100-1 50-1
Pascal Siakam 100-1 50-1
Paul George 12-1 60-1
Trae Young 300-1 60-1
Russell Westbrook 12-1 100-1
Kemba Walker 100-1 100-1
Ben Simmons 50-1 100-1
Jimmy Butler 100-1 150-1
Devin Booker 100-1 150-1
Bradley Beal 100-1 150-1

Remember when I said to fade Doncic and endorsed Simmons because he brings the ball up the court and will be on a roster that wins north of 50 games? Fun times. All Doncic has done so far is nearly average a triple-double to the tune of 28.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 9.1 assists per contest. He probably hasn't reached his highest point in the market yet, so I wouldn't be so quick to sell off.

One player I would recommend jumping ship on is Young, who's up from 300-1 to 60-1. The Hawks aren't going to win enough games for the second-year point guard to be considered, which is a shame because he's posting 28 points, 4.3 rebounds, 8.7 assists, and 1.6 steals per appearance.

Rookie of the Year odds

Player Open Current
Ja Morant 4-1 5-2
Zion Williamson 2-3 4-1
RJ Barrett 4-1 4-1
Kendrick Nunn 25-1 8-1
Rui Hachimura 50-1 10-1
Tyler Herro 100-1 10-1
Eric Paschall 60-1 14-1
Coby White 20-1 16-1
PJ Washington 100-1 25-1
Brandon Clarke 300-1 40-1
Jarrett Culver 20-1 50-1
De'Andre Hunter 20-1 50-1
Michael Porter Jr. 100-1 50-1
Darius Garland 14-1 50-1
Jordan Poole 60-1 80-1
Carsen Edwards 1000-1 100-1
Kevin Porter Jr. 1000-1 100-1
Keldon Johnson 100-1 100-1
Cam Reddish 40-1 100-1
Nickeil Alexander-Walker 300-1 100-1

Hello, Herro. The first-year Heat guard was the one consistent sharp bet in multiple shops over the summer that we mentioned. He's averaging 13.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists. Unfortunately, I think this is where the Kentucky product tops out.

I think Morant has separated himself enough with Williamson on the shelf, but one more player I'd look at is Clarke, who's averaging 11.9 points and 6.5 rebounds and leads all rookies in PER at 22.01.
