Odds to win 2009 NBA Championship: L.A. Lakers move to favorite

 With the 2009 NBA Playoffs inching closer by the day, it's time to look at the updated odds on which basketball franchise will win the 2008-2009 NBA Championship. For the latest NBA odds we go to the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker, where we find that the Boston Celtics have long lost their favorite status as current champions, along with the Cleveland Cavaliers who used to hold the best odds to win the 2009 NBA Championship. The current favorite to win the 09 NBA Championship is now the L.A. Lakers who hold the very short odds +105 to come out on top of the rest of the league's teams. The Cleveland Cavaliers, although losing their top odds status, are now +150 odds-on to win the last game of the NBA Finals, while the online bookmaker has extended the odds on the Boston Celtics to win to +550. Comparing the odds on the Lakers and the Celtics, it's clear that Boston is struggling big time in the eyes of the odds makers.

 Other interesting odds on the 2009 NBA Championship - the Orlando Magic have slightly improved to +600 to win the Finals, while the Houston Rockets went down to +935 to become the 2009 NBA champion. The underdogs of the NBA right now are the Detroit Pistons, the Atlanta Hawks, the Bulls and the Heat, all sharing long odds +6500 to win the 2009 NBA Championship. Of course with the Playoffs and the following games those odds are bound to change, so if you see anything you like from the underdogs - now would be the time to snatch some 4-digit odds. Visit Bookmaker for the full list of odds to win the 2009 NBA Championship or to place a bet on the possible winner.
