Vegas Releases Early Odds For 2015 NBA Champions, Spurs Not Favorites
In the world of Vegas, it’s never too early to start thinking about next year. That’s why, despite the Spurs being crowned NBA champions just two days ago, bookkeepers have already released their early odds for who will take home the Larry O’Brien trophy in 2015.
