2014-15 NBA Title Odds Released


The early 2014-15 NBA Championship betting odds have been released by vegasinsider.com, and the Heat, Spurs, Thunder and Pacers are all expected to be back near the top:


Miami Heat 5/2
San Antonio Spurs 8/1
Oklahoma City Thunder 8/1
Los Angeles Clippers 10/1
Indiana Pacers 15/1
Chicago Bulls 15/1
Houston Rockets 20/1
Golden State Warriors 30/1
Portland Trail Blazers 32/1
Washington Wizards 35/1
New York Knicks 50/1

Utah Jazz 125/1
Orlando Magic 125/1
Detroit Pistons 125/1
Sacramento Kings 125/1
Philadelphia 76ers 250/1
Milwaukee Bucks 300/1


The Heat and the Spurs unsurprisingly come in at #1 and #2, respectively, but the bookmakers don't seem to think the Spurs have what it takes to defend their crown.

The Thunder, Clippers and Pacers round out the top five, with the Clippers expected to overcome the Donald Sterling fiasco and remain Western Conference contenders. The Los Angeles Lakers were given 50/1 odds, reflecting a belief that they won't be as terrible as they were in 2013-14, but they still have a long way to go.
