|With the playoffs all set for this weekend, PinnacleSports.com has released odds on the teams that will win the NBA and Conference Championships.|
There is no surprise that the owner of the best league record, the Detroit Pistons, have been placed as favourite to win the NBA Championship at 11/10 odds.
PinnacleSports.com lists the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs at second-best odds at 3/1 odds, followed by the Dallas Mavericks at 9/1. The Shaq and Dwayne Wade-led Miami Heat have been installed at 10/1, while the Phoenix Suns are 11/1 to take home the title.
The lack of home-court advantage could damage the Denver Nuggets hopes and because of this they find themselves as 62/1 long shots to win the NBA title.
The odds also don't look good for LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers who are 62/1 to capture the championship. The Memphis Grizzlies and Indiana Pacers also find themselves as large underdogs to win the league title at 85/1 odds.
In the West, the top-seeded Spurs are overwhelming 5/7 favorites to win the conference championship followed by Dallas at 4/1 and Phoenix at 9/2. PinnacleSports.com has made Detroit huge 2/7 favorites in the Eastern Conference with the Heat (9/2) and Nets (8/1) presenting the biggest challenge to the Pistons.
