lebron james finalsWhile the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat prepare for Game 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals, the odds makers at Sportsbook.ag have been focusing on next season. The offshore bookmaker released its 2014 NBA Finals Odds this week and it has the Heat, who have appeared in the last three championship series, listed as a +250 moneyline favorite to win the title. This year’s top seed in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder, are a second pick to the Heat at +450 odds while the Spurs and Chicago Bulls are third choices at +800 odds. 2013 Eastern Conference Finals runner-up, the Indiana Pacers, round out the top five with a +1200 line.

The Los Angeles Lakers, given Kobe Bryant’s injury and Dwight Howard’s free agent status, are a middle of the pack consideration for next season at +2500 odds. Two other big city, big name franchises, the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, are not seen a viable contenders either. The Knicks are listed at +2000 odds to win the Finals next year while a Celtics win would return $4000 for every $100 wagered.

The two biggest longshots are, not surprisingly, the Orlando Magic and Charlotte Bobcats. Both squads, which combined to win 41 games last season, are drawing +50000 odds to win the 2014 NBA Finals.
