NBA Futures Betting – 2015 Title Odds (UPDATED)

We’re about 16 games into the 2014-15 NBA season and the Association continues to surprise.

The Blazers and Warriors are proving that they’re for real out west, while the Raptors looked poised to run away with the Eastern Conference until DeMar DeRozan went down. Meanwhile, Cleveland and the “Big Three” continue to search for consistency in the Central Division.

Some systems have returned to normal functioning, however; the Spurs are back to to their winning ways, riding an eight-game streak, while Derrick Rose is back to struggling with injuries. (Womp, womp.)

Below, you can find the updated odds for all 30 teams to lift the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, plus the odds from the last iteration (in parentheses). Whether your team is trending up or down, don’t get too carried away; there’s a lot of basketball to played! (Unless you’re a Sixers fan, in which case, get carried wherever you please, preferably away from the internet … and TV … and newspapers … and basketball.)

MTS co-founder Geoff Johnson is a lifelong Mets fan, something he can’t do anything about. He has a great track record when it comes to wagering on baseball – largely because he’s more than willing to bet against the Mets. His career profits are impressive, but not quite as good as his handsome friend Frank Lorenzo. He wishes he hadn’t let Frank write his profile.
