Just hours after LeBron James announced his return to Cleveland, the Cavaliers are Vegas favourites to win the 2015 NBA Championship.
- Cleveland +350
- San Antonio +500
- Oklahoma City +650
- Chicago +1000
- Los Angeles Clippers +1000
- Houston +1500
- Pacers +1900
- Heat +2000
- Golden State +2000
- Washington +4000
According to Bovada, another big betting site, the Cavs are 4/1 favourites to win it all, ahead of San Antonio at 5/1 and Oklahoma City at 6/1. At the start of the off-season, Cleveland was a 60/1 longshot to win it all, but as rumours of James’s return intensified, the odds fell steadily to 10/1, where they stayed until James finally made his decision.
Here’s a screen-grab from Bovada. Note that the Miami Heat have fallen all the way to 50/1.
