Sports-books Release NBA Finals Odds
Even though the NBA season doesn’t start for over a month, a number of sports books are releasing odds on who will win the NBA Finals in April next year.
The odds show that there are three favourites, Miami (37/20), Los Angeles Lakers (13/5) and Oklahoma City (53/10).
Miami Heat, the reigning champions, has one of the most impressive starting line-ups, including LeBron James.
The Los Angeles Lakers has a fantastic team on paper; however, the odds may be a little generous considering that the team has yet to prove.
Oklahoma City has the advantage of featuring the league’s best scorer, Kevin Durant.
Outside of these three teams the only other two which look to have a chance are the San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are led by Derrick Rose and if he can return to his MVP winning form then the team could cause an upset.
Last season’s 20-game winning streak demonstrated how well the Spurs can dominate. Unfortunately for them they were still three wins short of appearing in the NBA Finals. However, they could fair better this year.
All in all it looks like there is an exciting season ahead and there’re sure to be some fantastic games.
