With all the talks of the Thunder playoffs(playoffs?!), equations, trade scenarios, teams faltering... I wanted to see what the Vegas odds were saying. Well, I couldn't find any odds of simply making the playoffs, but I did find futures for an NBA championship.
One site was very predictable, it had the Thunder at 200/1 odds. Better than Minnesota and Sacramento only(250/1), and slightly worse than Memphis and the Clippers. Once again pretty much expected. http://www.vegasinsider.com/nba/odds/futures/#2509
The next site was a little surprising. BetUS.com had the Thunder at 100/1 odds. Which was better than the Sacramento, Minnesota, Milwaukee, Memphis, Clippers which all were 150/1. We were also ahead of Golden State(125/1), which was a big surprise considering they have been in the playoffs or at least in the hunt the past few years. The Thunder was had the same odds as Indianapolis, Charlotte and NJ. http://www.betus.com/sportsbook/nba-basketball_futures-nba_championship_09~10.aspx
I guess this really doesn't mean anything, but it's still a bit interesting to see where the Thunder stand in the betting world.
