The 2015 NBA playoffs are scheduled to begin on Saturday, and the seedings have been set with the Atlanta Hawks as the top seed in the Eastern Conference while the Golden State Warriors head the Western Conference.
Neither of them are opening the playoffs as the favorites to win it all though, as the Cleveland Cavaliers have the best odds at 9-to-4.
The Cavaliers are playing their best ball with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love showing chemistry that had lacked in the early part of the season.
The Warriors rank second with 5-to-2 odds as they finished with the NBA’s best record and leading MVP candidate Stephen Curry. The San Antonio Spurs are right behind the Cavaliers and Warriors as they have 4-to-1 odds.
There is a large dropoff after the Spurs as the Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls are next with 12-to-1 and 14-to-1 odds, and the Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets are tied with the Bulls.
The Milwaukee Bucks, Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics are this year’s long shots with 200-to-1 odds.
