NBA Finals Odds

The latest update to the NBA Finals odds shows just how big of an impact one player can have on a team.  The Cleveland Cavaliers, winners of just 33 games last season, are the odds-on favorites to win the NBA Finals in 2015 thanks to their re-acquisition of LeBron James.  Now, the Cavs were already +350 with the anticipation that Kevin Love would be added to the team, but you can see that once he was actually added to the roster the odds did move to +300.  Not the kind of jump we saw when the LeBron deal was announce, but still a pretty significant bump.  While the Cavs offer little to no value betting wise right now, the ups and downs of the season are likely to see these numbers fluctuate.

The defending Champion San Antonio Spurs have the second best odds in the field and I don’t know how you can really bet against them.  They are a franchise that does everything right.  Whether or not their dominance will continue is up for discussion, however, oddsmakers have pegged them to match up with the Cavs in the Finals in 2015.

Check back often to see what other offseason moves and in-season phenomenon impact these odds.
