What are the odds? Oddsmakers like Heat, Thunder to win it all

Sports book oddmakers still like the Heat, but now have the Thunder at 4/1 odds to win it all.

USA TODAY Sports

Sports book Bovada has released its updated odds for who is expected to win the NBA championship this year. Previously the Thunder had been listed as 9/2 favorites and now they are at slightly better odds as 4/1 favorites.

Surprisingly, the Lakers are still considered the 3rd best bet to win it all, at 11/2 odds. The Lakers are ahead of the Spurs, who have the best record in the NBA, as well as the Grizzlies and Knicks, both whom have looked much stronger than the Lakers so far this season.

Meanwhile, congratulations Charlotte Bobcats, you are no longer dead last.
