Training camp is still weeks away, but you can already place an early wager on the 2014 championship.
The Spurs, despite having come within a whisper of last year’s title, start the year at 12/1 at Bovada
, tied with Indiana and the re-made Los Angeles Clippers.
Miami, the team San Antonio came within seconds of knocking off in the Finals, is the overwhelming favorite to earn their third straight title at 19/10. That’s what having LeBron James will do for you. Or maybe the linemakers are just that impressed with the Greg Oden pickup.
Coming in behind the Heat are Oklahoma City (6/1), the Brooklyn Celtics, er, Nets (10/1), Chicago (10/1) and Houston (10/1).
Have no fear, Spurs fans. The same site listed the Spurs at 18/1
at the start of last season, and we all know how that went.
