The 2013/14 season of the NBA starts tonight, making this the perfect time for many who are into basketball betting to put down their outright bets on which team they think will win it. Alongside the different divisions of the Eastern and Western Conferences, there is the straightforward betting on what team will win the NBA Championship. So, as the fans prepare for the upcoming season, which sides are being ranked as favorites for the latter by the bookmakers’ websites?

The clear preseason favorites are the Miami Heat, and their low odds of 2/1-on are understandable when you consider their status as reigning NBA champions. Philadelphia doesn’t look like it will be challenging for this title with odds of 150/1 to even win the Atlantic division. However to qualify and to win the title outright you can get odds of 70/1. Something Sixers fans may find harder to bet on due to shorter odds. If the choice of betting leaves you not knowing who to go for then maybe playing online casino games such as Slam Dunk will be more appealing.

Slam Dunk offers you your fix of basketball and gambling in a completely different format – that of a themed slots game. Here, instead of fruit symbols on the reels, you have basketball players, cheerleaders, jerseys and other NBA sights – with the jerseys serving as the wild symbols for this game. These improve the payout chances as they can make up for other missing symbols on a reel. This, along with the various excellent game bonuses, $45,000 top jackpot and the ability to play Slam Dunk any time, any place (using mobile casino apps) means you have every reason to give it a shot, and no reason not to.
