2011 Eastern Conference Odds

2011 NBA Eastern Conference Odds Miami Heat

The Miami Heat are already considered the best in the Eastern Conference, but what are their odds to win the 2011 East title?

Bet NBA Futures Odds

Miami is the favorite to win the East this year and have 1/2 odds to win according to online sports book BroburySports.com. Other short odds to win are Boston (2/1), Orlando (2/1), and Chicago (6/1).

With the formation of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh to the Miami Heat roster, it is hard to ignore that they have the best talent in the East, at least in terms of a starting five. The issue for Miami this year could be with injuries, as Wade is already dealing with a hamstring problem, and LeBron also missed time due to an injury.

Boston is the defending Eastern Conference champion and the Celtics added Shaquille O’Neal to the team to replace the retired Rasheed Wallace. The Celtics have a solid roster, but many of the key players are a year older and a year slower. Injuries will be a big key to their season as well.

Orlando hasn’t made many changes from a team that lost in the conference finals last year. Dwight Howard is expected to step up and be more productive on offense while Jameer Nelson is also expected to shine. However, Vince Carter is a year older and slower as well, and he has been productive for Orlando the past few years.

Chicago has a young and talented roster and they added Carlos Boozer to the team during the offseason. The Bulls are led by Derek Rose and Joakim Noah while also having Luol Deng in the mix.
