Blazers fans - Now is the team to head to Las Vegas if you feel good about the team’s outlook for the 2017-18 NBA season.

Bovada Sportsbook gave the Blazers 150/1 odds of winning the 2018 NBA title in its way-too-early championship line, released today. Apparently the Blazers are on par with other stalwart franchises like the Knicks (150/1) and Pacers (150/1) and significantly worse than the 76ers (66/1) and Timberwolves (50/1), who combined for a solid 59 wins last season.

Bovada is also pessimistic about Portland’s first-round draft pick Zach Collins, leaving him off their Rookie of the Year table entirely.

Readers, let us know what you think in the comments. Is there easy money to be made here?
