Odds to win 2009
With the start of the 2008-2009 basketball season, it's
time to look at the future betting odds offered on the 2009 NBA
Finals, i.e. which NBA teams are the favorite to win the Finals,
according to the odds. For the purpose of finding out the top
basketball teams this season, we will look at the odds offered
by the popular online sportsbook
BodogLife, which also offers a 10% bonus on your
sports betting deposits.
And looking at the 2009 NBA Finals
odds, not surprisingly the current NBA Championship winner,
the Boston Celtics, along with the other NBA Championship
finalist, the Los Angeles Lakers, are the two top NBA teams to
win the next year's Finals, as well. Both the Celtics and the
Lakers are listed with 3/1 odds on winning the 2009 NBA Finals
with the online bookmaker, while their closest competition comes
from the Houston Rockets, who are sitting on odds 9/1 to win the
Finals in 2009. Following these three teams come the Detroit
Pistons, who are listed with odds 10/1, same as the New Orleans
Hornets. Also worth mentioning are the San Antonio Spurs
with odds 12/1 to win the NBA Finals, followed by Utah Jazz and
Cleveland Cavaliers, both sharing betting odds 14/1 on
Championship victory in 2009.
On the opposite side of the spectrum we
find plenty of underdogs to win the Finals next year. With odds
200/1 are the Memphis Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, as well as the
former SuperSonics, now known as the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Meanwhile the Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves are
with odds 150/1 on winning the NBA title. See links below to get
