NBA Western Conference Odds
(TheSpread) – The Western Conference title is open to a lot of teams in the 2013-14 NBA Season. Here is a look at the odds to win this season’s title.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers are both favored to win the title, as each has 7/2 odds. Other short odds to win are the Houston Rockets (4/1) and the San Antonio Spurs (11/2).
The Thunder won the conference title back in 2012, but lost in the conference semifinals last season as the top seed. Oklahoma City still has arguably the top player in the conference in Kevin Durant, but the team seems to be fading since the loss of James Harden.
The Clippers have never won the conference title, but have hope this season thanks to Chris Paul re-signing with the team and Los Angeles trading for Doc Rivers as head coach.
Houston has won the conference title four times in program history, the last win coming in 1995. Houston already has the likes of James Harden and Jeremy Lin, but added the big signing of the offseason, Dwight Howard, to the roster.
The Spurs are the defending conference champs and have won five conference titles in franchise history. San Antonio isn’t getting much younger, though, and age is a concern for this team.
