Although we don’t condone gambling here on That NBA Lottery Pick, betting lines/odds are usually in flux and before the 2013/14 NBA season has even started, betting websites have already put odds on who will win the NBA championship.
The fine folks over at Bovada Sportsbook have the Miami Heat as the favorites with 19/10 odds but the most surprising part was the area where the Los Angeles Lakers were place.
The Lakers were given 33/1 odds of winning the title which is the same as the Western Conference runner-up from last season, the Memphis Grizzlies. With the loss of Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant coming off an injury, some might say those odds are pretty generous to say the least.
Other notable lines from Bovada include the Warriors at 18/1 odds, Knicks at 22/1 odds, and Detroit Pistons at 75/1 odds.
