2011 Western Conference Odds

2011 NBA Western Conference Odds Los Angeles Lakers

The defending NBA Champions, the Los Angeles Lakers, are still considered the class of the Western Conference for this season, but what are their odds to win the West?

Bet NBA Futures Odds

L.A. is the favorite to win the West this year and has 4/5 odds to win according to online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com. Other short odds to win the West are Oklahoma City (6/1), and Dallas (13/2).

The Lakers are the two-time defending Western Conference and NBA Champions. The roster is largely intact from last season with the addition of Matt Barnes to the roster. Kobe Bryant is seeking his second three-peat in his career in terms of NBA titles, which would match Michael Jordan.

The Thunder are a rising team thanks mostly to the play of Kevin Durant. Durant is in his third year with the team and just signed a new extension to stay with the Thunder. Durant is getting a lot of hype to be the 2010-11 MVP this season. He also has Morris Peterson and Russell Westbrook aiding his efforts.

Dallas has been an underwhelming team over the years, appearing in just one NBA Finals despite having one of the most talented teams in the league year-in and year-out. This season, Dirk Nowitzki will have Shawn Marion, Caron Butler, and Tyson Chandler joining him.
