The NBA Conference Finals are now set and will be kicking off this weekend in Indiana as the Pacers and Heat renew their rivalry with the wager for a second straight year being a spot in the NBA Finals. Over in the Western Conference, we have a matchup we thought we were going to see until the Memphis Grizzlies went and messed things up by bouncing the Thunder in the Semifinals.
Now that the we know the Thunder and Spurs will meet out west and the Heat and Pacers out east, the updated NBA Finals odds have come in and things are still hot down in South Beach.
Here’s a look at the updated odds for who is the safest bet to win the NBA Finals this year:
Miami Heat — 6/5
San Antonio Spurs 11/5
Oklahoma City Thunder — 3/1
Indiana Pacers 10/1
As expected, the Pacers have the roughest chances of winning the Finals because they have the hardest road to get there. After almost getting bounced by the Hawks and nearly escaping the Wizards, Indiana has gotten their wish to play the Heat in the Conference Finals and how need to prove all of the anticipation was worth it.
