Raptors have longest odds to win NBA Championship

Fresh off a game seven win over the Miami Heat to reach the conference finals, the Toronto Raptors are still considered major underdogs to win the NBA Championship. The team has been given 33/1 odds to win the title by betting site Bodog. That's just 2.94 per cent. Ouch.

On the flip side, the Golden State Warriors odds of going all the way have been pegged at 5/8, followed by Cavaliers at 9/4 and the Oklahoma City Thunder at 6/1. I can imagine the Raptors coaching staff won't mind this extra little bit of motivation for the team.

The odds of the Raps getting through LeBron James' Cavs in the next round goes up to 13/2, but that's still only 13.33 per cent. All the more reason to throw all our support behind this team. Cue the fairytale story.
