Miami favored to win the 2015 NBA title
June 16, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
Even after an NBA Finals blowout and the status of their Big Three in limbo, the Miami Heat are the early favorites to win the NBA championship in 2015.
Pregame.com lists Miami as a 5/2 favorite to avenge its Finals loss, despite the fact LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can opt-out of their contracts next month. That’s twice as good as the next closest competitors. Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder are 7/1 to win their first NBA title, the same odds Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs are getting to repeat and win their sixth. (None of Duncan’s five titles have been back-to-back.)
