According to oddsmakers, the two teams that contended for this year’s NBA title, the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder are the favorites to win, as each has 5/2 odds. Other short odds to win are the Chicago Bulls (5/1) and the San Antonio Spurs (7/1).

The Heat claimed their first NBA Championship with The Big Three, as they beat the Thunder in 5 games. This team will remain largely intact but perhaps lose a few role players. The Heat will have the challenge of striving to repeat for the title, which can be difficult.

The Thunder came up short, losing in the NBA Finals to the Heat. The Thunder will be very talented next year with the core of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden back. They will be a year wiser and can build off this Finals experience.

The Bulls were set to make a run at the title this year, but saw star Derrick Rose go down in the first game of the playoffs with a knee injury. Chicago actually had the best record in the Eastern Conference this year, better than Miami.

The Spurs had the top record in the West, but lost to the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals. The question for San Antonio is age as stars like Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili are all getting toward the tail end of their careers.
