Miami Heat Overwhelming Favorite to Win NBA Title


The odds are out for the 2011-2012 NBA season and, as expected, the Miami Heat find themselves in the top spot as the favorites to win it all.

Even though many of the experts are down on the LA Lakers, the oddsmakers still like them better then the city rival Clippers.  In fact, Kobe Bryan and Co. are listed fourth to win it all the upcoming season.

Hopefully, Dan Gilbert won’t be writing a letter complaining to the league after seeing that his Cleveland Cavaliers are the biggest longshot for the championship.
