Count the online sports book Bovada among those who aren’t impressed with San Antonio’s league-best record. With their recent playoff disasters likely playing a major factor, the Spurs have “only” the third best odds of winning this year’s championship at 6/1.
In contrast, defending champion Miami is the favorite at 3/2, while Oklahoma City — which defeated the Spurs last season, of course — are second at 13/4. The Clippers and Knicks are well behind the pack at 15/2 and 14/1, respectively. The Thunder are given 3/2 odds to win the Western Conference compared to 5/2 for the Spurs.
Vegas still doesn’t trust Spurs
