The Oklahoma City Thunder didn’t get the vengeance they were hoping for the last time they met the Miami Heat following their loss to the eventual champion in the NBA Finals last summer. This Thursday they’ll look to beat the NBA odds and prove to the world that they’re capable of moving into the league’s No. 1 spot.
According to Bovada’s NBA oddsmakers, the Thunder aren’t quite there yet – much to the chagrin of young superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. While OKC has emerged as a contender over the course of the past few seasons, the Heat are the NBA futures favorite with 7/4 odds of winning the championship.
In contrast, Oklahoma City has 3/1 such NBA odds. Bet on the league at its best when the superstars collide.
