They may only have the fourth best record in the NBA at the moment, but LeBron James and the Miami Heat remain the bookies favourites to make it three championship wins in a row.

At 9/4 favourites, the Eastern Conference machine are still heavily fancied by the Las Vegas oddsmakers to make it all the way to the Finals and come out with another trophy.

This comes as a blow for the San Antonio Spurs who have been in incredible form winning there last 18 games in a row to go along with their brilliant record away from the AT&T Center this season.

Despite being number one in the much tougher West with a record of 58 - 16, Tony Popovich, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and company only come in at 7/2 to go all the way.

Behind the Spurs come the Indiana Pacers and Oklahoma City Thunder tied with odds of 9/2. Those numbers seem incredibly generous for a Pacers side whose players have admitted how awful they have been since Danny Grangers trade on deadline day.

The Pacers have lost the number one seed in the East from a commanding position and are in an absolute nose dive with the playoffs fast approaching.

The Thunder on the other hand have eight wins and two losses in their last ten matches and Kevin Durant is keeping up his incredible Michael Jordan-esque run of games with 25 or more points in a row.

Behind those two come Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the LA Clippers at 8/1 with the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors way back at 18/1 and 20/1 respectively.
