Graphic: NBA bettors like Miami Heat
By Playbook Dollars
With the second round of the NBA playoffs now underway, betting network Favourit analyzed the action on basketball's postseason, and shared the results with Playbook.
Those results: Through one round, bettors like the Miami Heat to repeat as champions, beating the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. They also view regular-season top player LeBron James as the most likely Finals MVP, ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant.
Not pictured: A big shift from the first round's bets, which showed OKC getting out of the Western Conference before losing to Miami. As expected, bettors viewed the Thunder's loss of Russell Westbrook as a tough one to overcome.
