Rockets climb to +1275 to win the NBA Championship
Thu, Aug 27th 4:18am EDT
Despite losing two straight games to the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Houston Rockets have seen their odds to win the NBA Championship rise. With Denver and Portland both taking a tumble, there was room on the board for the Rockets to see a slight spike in their odds. Russell Westbrook has yet to return to the lineup, but should be nearing a return. The boycott will buy some time for teams to heal, and if and when play resumes, that should bode well for teams nursing key injuries like Houston, Toronto, and Dallas. Houston will be a force in the second round if Russell Westbrook can return to the court.
