LeBron James Back to Cleveland Turns NBA Odds Upside Down
- Updated: July 12, 2014
One of BTBsportsbooks.com top rated betting outlet, Bovada was one of the first to change the betting odds and James’ new team, the Cavaliers, leaped to the top of the list of teams to win a championship. Think that one player cannot change the odds in the NBA? At one point last week the Cavaliers were 30 to 1 to win a title and right now at Bovada sportsbook they are 4 to 1 to win a title next season.
This includes beating out the San Antonio Spurs who are the defending champions.
These odds may not be that far off. In his four-year absence, the Cavaliers were one of the league’s worst franchises, compiling a 97-215 record without making a single playoff appearance. But the team does feature a young, talented core led by Kyrie Irving, a 22-year-old point guard who recently signed a long-term extension with the team. In his statement, James said he thought he could help Irving become one of the best players in the league. If the Cavs get Kevin Love this could get even better for bettors who take the Cavs earlier in the week.
Bovada did not stop there as they also posted props for the return of King James to the Cleveland area. Average Points per game in the 2014-2015 NBA Regular Season – Lebron James
