Because the Las Vegas oddsmakers play by their own set of rules, it is not a surprise that the minute the NBA Finals were over, the bookies already submitted predictions for who will hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy next season.

The NBA Champion Miami Heat and runner-up the Oklahoma City Thunder are both 5-2 favorites to win it all. The Chicago Bulls are at 5-1, followed by the San Antonio Spurs with 7-1 odds, and the Los Angeles Lakers come in at 12-1.
