2014 NBA Division Odds


The NBA season is nearing the home stretch and almost every division, with the exception of the Southeast and Central, has at least two teams in the mix for a title. With Miami and Indiana running away from the competition in those two divisions, the odds makers at Sportsbook.ag chose to leave them out of their latest 2014 NBA Division Odds release. Three of the other four are included, though, and it looks as though the chase for the title will be tightly contested in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southwest divisions.

2014 NBA Division Odds:

Atlantic Division -

Toronto Raptors -250
Brooklyn Nets +150
New York Knicks +2000
Boston Celtics +8000
Philadelphia 76ers +20000

The Toronto Raptors, who presently own a three game lead over the Brooklyn Nets, are favored to win the Atlantic at -250 odds. The Nets, who have made up some serious ground on Toronto over the last couple of months, are drawing +150 odds to take home the Atlantic title.

Southwest Division -

San Antonio Spurs -350
Houston Rockets +200
Dallas Mavericks +3000
Memphis Grizzlies +6000
New Orleans Pelicans +500000

The division leading Spurs are the clear favorite at -350 odds, but the Rockets look like the better value pick at +200. Houston has won eight of its last nine games to draw within three games of San Antonio and it already has three wins over the Spurs this season.

Pacific Division -

Los Angeles Clippers -1200
Golden State Warriors +400
Phoenix Suns +1000
Sacramento Kings +500000
Los Angeles Lakers +500000

$1200 to win $100 is an awful steep price for a team that is just 3.5 games ahead of two quality teams in the division. Golden State and Phoenix look far more appealing at +400 and +1000 odds, respectively.
