2014 NBA Western Conference Odds
(TheSpread) – The 2014 Western Conference playoffs should be very competitive. Here is a look at the odds to win next year’s conference title.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Oklahoma City Thunder are the favorites to win the West, as they have 2/1 odds. Other short odds to win are the San Antonio Spurs (7/2) and the Los Angeles Clippers (11/2).
Oklahoma City reached the NBA Finals in 2012, but lost in the conference semifinals this year, due in part to Russell Westbrook getting hurt in the playoff opener.
The Spurs came up one game shy of winning the NBA Finals this year, but did so with a veteran roster. It is unknown if players like Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will be back next season.
The Clippers don’t currently have a coach, but speculation is that Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett could be coming over from Boston. If so, the coach and forward paired with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin could give the Clippers a real contender.
