As always, it’s important to preface this post about NBA Championship gambling odds by saying that I do not gamble, and therefore I do not offer gambling advice. Even when I offer fantasy advice, that’s just coming from my gut, but you have to keep in mind that my gut went to Harvard while the rest of my body went to a public Florida university. The moral of this story is to make up your own mind, because I can only be trusted for fart jokes.
That said, the gambling site Bovada, which does claim to be run by experts and provide expert analysis, has released its odds for all 30 NBA teams winning the Larry O’Brien Trophy, and without any real surprise, the defending champion Miami Heat are the favorites, and the Los Angeles Lakers are right behind them. After that, the Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs get a little love, but these odds basically tell us what we already know about this upcoming season – the Charlotte Bobcats are terrible.
Check out the odds after the jump, with very few surprises.
