    So how does one read this?

    Miami has a 50% chance of repeating, OKC has a 22% chance of winning it all?

    If so, we'd have a 8.33% chance of bringing home a title?...

    15-1 on the Pacers and the Nets, 2-1 Heat, 6-1 Bulls...

    Is there a line for winning the conference? The Pacers / Nets conference bet should be pretty attractive.

    Terrible values:
    the rockets at 12-1. Really?
    The bulls at 6-1. Sure.

    Good Values:
    Clippers at 8-1 is a pretty good value.
    The warriors at 30-1
    pacers at 15-1 are extremely good values.
    the grizzlies at 25-1

    Rockets bad value? 12-1 is pretty generous. I can't say for certain we are even winning the conference, let alone the title.

    Bulls is pretty nuts.

    Gotta say Pacers is the best bet.

    Also I wouldn't bet Miami.

    Something feels wrong to me with them this year. Don't forget they were a rebound or missed 3 away from 1-2 in the finals.

    This sounds about right to me. The smart money is always way ahead of everyone else. Hollinger sometimes is better at predicting the upcoming NBA season. But not always and not by much. And I can just about guarantee that he will not be publishing his forecasts for next season.
