Our friends at Bovada have passed along the latest odds on the NBA championship:
Los Angeles Lakers 5/2
Oklahoma City Thunder 9/2
San Antonio Spurs 18/1
Los Angeles Clippers 25/1
“Looking at our NBA championship odds, one thing really stands out and that is that only three teams are under 10-1 to win it all and is pretty much a three horse race with the Heat favored to repeat at 11/5, the Lakers at 5/2, and the Thunder at 9/2.Even at these short odds these three teams have taken the most money along with the Boston Celtics who we opened at 25-1 who I have now dropped down to 18-1.”

Is Derrick Rose coming back with a bionic knee? Unless he does, I just don’t see how Chicago is a bigger threat than Boston. In fact, I’m insulted the Celtics are only at 18-1.
But there’s something about the number 18..
