Vegas Odds On 2015 NBA Championship
King James and company took down the 2012 – 2013 NBA championship, needing a last second three by smooth shooting Ray Allen to stave off elimination. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and rest of the San Antonio Spurs were in the cat bird seat before that shot, and the Miami Heat used that momentum to take their second title in as many years. The Miami Heat will certainly be considered one of the Vegas odds on NBA favorites for the 2013 – 2014 National Basketball Association regular season. But shooting guard Paul George and the Indiana Pacers, the perennial league MVP Kevin Durant and Oklahoma City Thunder, as well as the Blake Griffin's Los Angeles Clippers all stand in Miami's way. And the seemingly 100-year-old San Antonio Spurs still have Parker and Duncan playing great, so the 2014 NBA championship is by no means a foregone conclusion.

And the wise bettor knows to look at the Las Vegas odds on NBA championship potential winners to find value in individual games, as well as potential underdogs during the finals.
The 2004 NBA finals saw the upstart Detroit Pistons as huge underdogs to a Los Angeles Lakers team which had won three of the previous four NBA championships. With future Hall of Famers Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal already on the roster, the Lakers added Karl Malone and Gary Payton, two probable Hall of Famers with no championship rings. What seemed like the most lopsided match-up in NBA championship history turned out to be definitely one-sided … in the other direction.
With such heavy Vegas odds on the Lakers to easily win and possibly even sweep in four, the smart money was all over the Detroit Pistons team of hungry second-level names like Richard Hamilton, Ben Wallace, Chauncey Billups and Tayshaun Prince. Not only did Detroit win the series, but they did so in decided fashion, dominating the favored Lakers with a punishing and smothering defense and closing out the series in just five games. Will the underdog pay off this year? Or will the favorite sail smoothly to a predictable championship? Anything is possible, so keep updated on the latest Las Vegas odds on NBA championship play right here.
