NBA championship betting odds 2015: Heat favored next year despite embarrassing end to season

The 2014 NBA Finals are in the books, but that doesn’t mean it is too early to look ahead to next year and check out the betting odds for next year’s championship.

Despite being blown out by the San Antonio Spurs in the final three games of this year’s NBA Finals series, the Miami Heat remain favored to win the 2015 title. The Oklahoma City Thunder are tied at 7-to-1 odds as the next most likely team to bring home the trophy.

Rounding out the top five is the Los Angeles Clippers and a tie between the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls.
