Las Vegas Takes Notice Of The Lakers Spectacular Summer

Lakers 3-1 to win 2013 NBA titleAt the end of the NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers were listed at 12-1 to win the 2013 title. But, a successful summer, which has included the acquisitions of Steve Nash, Dwight Howard and Antawn Jamison, has thoroughly impressed Las Vegas oddsmakers, who have dropped LA's chances to 3-1, just behind the defending champion Miami Heat,  who are favored at 2-1 odds.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are third at 4-1, followed by the Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs at 12-1.  

The Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers are all posted at 25-1.

Indiana, New York, Memphis and Philadelphia come in at 30-1.

If you like long shots, Washington and Toronto are presently 150-1, while Charlotte and Detroit bring up the rear at 200-1.
