With only one player – Norris Cole – on an option-less guaranteed contract for next season, Miami has a pretty uncertain future.
But Bovada is betting the Heat will come together strong – or at least that gamblers on the site believe the Heat will come together strong.
Miami is the 2015 NBA title favorite, according to the Bovada. Here are the odds for every team:
- Miami Heat: 7:2
- Oklahoma City Thunder: 6:1
- San Antonio Spurs: 6:1
- Los Angeles Clippers: 9:1
- Chicago Bulls: 12:1
- Indiana Pacers: 12:1
- Houston Rockets: 16:1
- Cleveland Cavaliers: 20:1
- Golden State Warriors: 25:1
- Portland Trailblazers: 25:1
- Brooklyn Nets: 28:1
- Dallas Mavericks: 33:1
- Memphis Grizzlies: 33:1
- Washington Wizards: 33:1
- Los Angeles Lakers: 40:1
- New York Knicks: 40:1
- Toronto Raptors: 40:1
- Boston Celtics: 50:1
- Denver Nuggets: 50:1
- Detroit Pistons: 50:1
- New Orleans Pelicans: 50:1
- Minnesota Timberwolves: 66:1
- Atlanta Hawks: 75:1
- Charlotte Hornets: 75:1
- Phoenix Suns: 75:1
- Orlando Magic: 150:1
- Sacramento Kings: 150:1
- Utah Jazz: 150:1
- Milwaukee Bucks: 200:1
- Philadelphia 76ers: 200:1
For the record, I like the Thunder at 6:1, the Clippers at 9:1 and Suns at 75:1. I also like the Spurs at 6:1, but I’d wait until the action cools on them.

It’s impossible to ever really define and entire large city in one bit of writing. But this story comes as close to defining the intricate relationship of San Antonio with the Spurs as you are going to see.

In a season where Kyle Korver’s three point shooting has at times seemed inhuman this may be his best shooting display.
