– James’ decision to sign with the Cavaliers has been one of the most anticipated moves in all of sports, and has kept oddsmakers on their toes as the public reacted to the rumors. Cleveland moved from as high as 35/1 to win the NBA title to 7/1 at William Hill sportbooks in Nevada before the announcement, and they may not be done there.
– As for a projected season win total for LeBron and the Cavs, Nick Bogdanovich, U.S. Director of Trading at William Hill Nevada, believes something in the 55-win range would be close with “their potential off the charts”. Stewart also sees the 55-win range as a solid estimation but may even tag on some extra victories – if Cleveland can add a few more elite talents around James.
– The Heat are projected to climb as high as 300/1 odds to win the NBA title in 2014-15, with Chris Bosh expected to leave for Houston and Dwyane Wade likely to jump ship as well, according to the LV Superbook in Las Vegas.
