Blazers Open At 50/1 Odds To Win 2013 NBA Championship

Hope springs eternal. One day after the Miami Heat won the 2012 NBA Finals, the Portland Trail Blazers open as 50/1 odds to take the 2013 crown.

One oddsmaker sees them firmly in the NBA's middle, with the 14th best odds -- tied with the Atlanta Hawks, Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz -- out of 30 teams. The Heat open at 11/4 favorites to repeat while the Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder open at 5/1, second best odds in the league. Around the Northwest Division, the Denver Nuggets open at 30/1 and the Minnesota Timberwolves open at 75/1.

For comparison's sake, the Blazers opened at 30/1 odds to win the 2012 NBA Finals back in November 2011 and were 30/1 odds to win the 2011 Finals back in October 2010.
