LeBron James’ decision to rejoin his hometown team for the 2014-15 season has certainly been noticed by betting sites. Most gambling websites have installed James and the Cavs as the favorites for the 2015 NBA Championship.
That puts the Cavs slightly ahead of the team that beat LeBron and the Heat in the 2014 finals, the Spurs. The team from San Antonio are being offered at 5/1 with Paddy Power. Some gambling sites are offering the Spurs as joint-favorites with the Cavs.
A reflection of the influence of LeBron over the Heat is in the betting odds, 888 Sport have gone as far as 50/1 for the Heat to win the championship next season.
