heatfans small Heat Suddenly Hot Ticket in Vegas

The addition of LeBron James has escalated the championship odds for the Miami Heat at Las Vegas sports books. According to the “Review-Journal,” the Heat were installed as a 9-5 favorite to win the NBA Championship next season at the M Resort sports book this morning, hours after James announced he is joining fellow free agents Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to create a “dream team” of sorts in Miami. The L.A. Lakers are next at 7-2, followed by the Orlando Magic at 13-1 to win it all. The M Resort’s sports book director says the Heat opened as a 20-1 pick for next year’s title about a month ago, but there were no takers at that price. The Heat are also listed as a -160 favorite to win the Eastern Conference. As for LeBron’s old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, his departure sent them in the opposite direction. After opening at 10-1 to win the title, the Cavs have now dropped to 300-1.
