    NBA Futures odds – which team is the favorite to win the title in 2015? Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.



    Miami just lost the NBA Finals to San Antonio in five games ending the Heat's run for a three-peat. Despite the disappointing finish to the season, Miami has opened as the favorite to win the NBA Title in 2015. The Heat have 3/1 odds to bring the title back to South Beach even with the status of Miami's Big Three in doubt.

    The reigning champions, San Antonio, are 6/1 to repeat but none of Duncan's five titles have been won back-to-back. Oklahoma City is also a 6/1 favorite to win the title with MVP Kevin Durant leading the way.

    Additional Highlights
    • The Bulls are 12-1 to win the title, fifth best in the league. Chicago's title hopes have been dashed the last two seasons with knee injuries to Derrick Rose. A full season from Rose and a weak Eastern Conference could make Chicago an interesting play, especially considering the Bulls can amnesty Carlos Boozer and be a real player in free agency.
    • The Los Angeles Clippers (9/1) odds are nearly five times better than the Los Angeles Lakers (40/1).
    • Milwaukee and Philadelphia battled for the worst record in basketball last season, both teams have the longest odds to win the title at 200/1.
    • The top ten teams with the best odds all made the 2014 playoffs.
    • Cleveland is the best regarded non-playoff team. The Cavs are 33/1 to win the title.

    Kevin Love, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James are just a few names that could switch teams this summer. The lucky teams to land these stars will see their future odds plummet quickly.

    04/24/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now in full swing, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides, totals, and run lines have all been profitable to date, generating a total of $580 for an average $50 bettor. There are have been a total of nine "normal" or better positions year-to-date, and those positions are a sparkling 8-1 (88.9%), producing $393 in total profits. There is a ton of variance in baseball and there will be ups-and-downs along the way, but the early returns on the Predictalator's baseball projections are promising.

    The NBA Playoffs tipped off this week and the Predictalator is off to a stellar start. With a full season's worth of data to work with, the Predictalator has historically fared very well in the postseason across all sports, and this year has been no different.
