The smart money is on the Golden State Warriors claiming their second NBA title in three years at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

Having added 2014 Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant to their ranks, the Dubs are expected to snatch their crown back from LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

The defending champions are seen as the only team capable of beating the Warriors, and that's only because they have the self-professed 'King' within their ranks. 

However, the 80-1 outsiders; the New York Knicks have been attracting the most interest at the SuperBook in Las Vegas.

The Knicks have struggled for the last three seasons but have had a strong offseason to significantly strengthen their roster. However, to suggest they have the power to beat the Cavaliers and the Warriors really is a long shot. 

Having not reached the playoffs since 2013, they are expected to reach the top eight in the Eastern Conference. However, their roster does not have the depth or star power to challenge the game's super teams.

Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Carmelo Anthony would've been a devastating trio five years ago but there are serious concerns over the ability of the two former Bulls players after serious injury issues.
