Oddsmakers Say Thunder Among Favorites In 2012

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Thunder advanced to the Western Conference Finals this season. Next year, oddsmakers say they could compete for the NBA title.

Cantor Rice and Sports released its odds for the 2011-12 NBA season and say while Miami lost the title this year, they will be the runaway favorite to win it next year.

The Bulls are the next in line, while Oklahoma City, defending champion Dallas and the Los Angeles Lakers are tied atop the Western Conference favorites.

The Thunder went 55-and-27 in 2010-11 and advanced to the Western Conference Finals by winning a pair of playoff series -- their first playoff series victory since the 2004-05 season.

If you were looking for the ultimate underdog for next season, it would be the Minnesota Timberwolves or Toronto Raptors, who each are considered 300-to-1 odds.
