We're almost at the halfway point of the shortened NBA lines season so we've updated the odds for winning this year's NBA Championship.

NBA Lines

Miami Heat 5:3
Chicago Bulls 9:2
Oklahoma City Thunder 5:1
Los Angeles Lakers 6:1
Los Angeles Clippers 14:1
Dallas Mavericks 14:1

Miami Heat Favorites

The Miami Heat remain favorites to win the NBA lines title this year, with their Eastern Conference rival, Chicago Bulls, coming in a close second.

Eastern Conference Followed By Western Conference

The Heat and Bulls are followed by 4 Western Conference teams, with the Oklahoma City Thunder leading the way. The Thunder have the best record in the NBA at 15-3 and are probably the most balanced team in the NBA. The Thunder are lead by all-stars Kevin Durant (25.7 PPG) and Russell Westbrook (20.4 PPG).

Both Teams From L.A. In The Top 5

This is the first time in a while that both teams from L.A. are top 5 favorites to bring home an NBA title. The Lakers have been heavily reliant on Kobe for offense, as the star guard is averaging a league high 30.2 PPG, his highest total in 6 seasons. The Lakers defense has been a pillar to their success as well, allowing just over 90 PPG (6th in NBA lines).

Meanwhile, the Clippers defense has been suspect this season (21st overall) but their offense has kept them competitive. The Clips have 5 players averaging over 14 PPG, lead by Blake Griffin's 21.3 PPG.
