How Does Vegas Feel About the Cleveland Cavaliers?

It’s widely known that the Cavaliers are one of the favorites to win the Finals in June of 2017. In fact, the NBA is extremely top heavy this year, or at least that’s what Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world, things.

The latest odds for the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the 2017 NBA Title have them at 3-1. For those of you that don’t know how this works, it means that for every dollar one bets on the Cavs to win the title, they would then receive three times that amount back should the Cavs complete the deal in June. For example, placing a $50 bet would win $150 if LeBron James and crew can get it done.

Listed below are the odds for the rest of the NBA.
