The bookies this year have the Cav’s as clear cut favourites to break the drought and win that all elusive title. It’s certainly about time that the team, LeBron and the patient fans of Cleveland were awarded with the ultimate prize in basketball. They are around $2.50 to lift the trophy and that might be good value. LeBron has been simply awesome this year and it finally appears that he has a team around him that are strong enough to win the title. It isn’t a team of big names but it’s a team that knows how LeBron plays and knows how to exploit that advantage.
The hardest competition is likely to come from the Lakers. The Lakers are the clear second pick at around $3.50 and they have the advantage of being in the far weaker Western Conference. Unlike the Cav’s, the Lakers have been far from their best this year and will rely heavily on Kobe Bryant carrying the team. The only other team that is under $10 is the Orlando Magic who is around $6.00 to win the title. The Magic should cruise into the Eastern Division playoffs where they will meet the Cav’s in what should be one hell of a clash.
