(The Spread) – Talk about how old they are all you want, but the San Antonio Spurs are your current favorites to win the 2012 NBA Championship.

According to oddsmakers the Spurs are 17/10 favorites to win the NBA Finals this season. The Miami Heat have the next best odds at 7/4 while the Oklahoma City Thunder, who will oppose the Spurs in the upcoming Western Conference Finals, are 5/2.

Continuing with the odds, the Boston Celtics are 9/1 to win the 2012 NBA Finals while the Indiana Pacers are 40/1. The Philadelphia Sixers are the current long shots at 65/1, as they now face an uphill climb down three-games-to-two in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. If the Celtics win tonight in Philadelphia, the Sixers will be eliminated.

The Spurs are led by the aging yet effective Tim Duncan (.540), who is second behind only the Knicks’ Amare Stoudemire (.556) in field goal percentage throughout the postseason. Tony Parker is also fourth in assists per game at 7.1, which ranks him behind Boston’s Rajon Rondo (13.2), the Clippers’ Chris Paul (7.9), and the Grizzlies’ Mike Conley (7.1).

San Antonio easily disposed of the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The Spurs swept the Jazz in four games and then broke out the brooms again versus a talented Clippers team led by Paul and Blake Griffin. The last time the Spurs won a NBA title was back in 2007 when they swept the Cavaliers but they also collected championships in 1999, 2003, and 2005. In fact, they have not lost a NBA Finals with Tim Duncan on their roster.
