The Miami Heat are looking so hot these days but they’re still the favorite to win the NBA title. That’s not surprising. If you want to fade the Heat on the futures board, the best way to do it might be to take the Western Conference to win the title at plus-money.
Outside of Miami, the Chicago Bulls are the only serious (sorry Boston fans) championship contenders from the East. The West’s field, however, includes the Lakers, Spurs, Thunder, Mavericks and Thunder – five teams that are good enough to win it all.
Sportsbook.com and a few other books have the West at +115 to win the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
Remember the last three champs (Mavs and Lakers twice) have come from the West, the Thunder are the second overall fave and the Grizz might be the hottest team in the league.
