NBA 2012 Western Conference Playoff Betting Lines
Oklahoma & San Antonio: Favorites In The Wild West
After leading NBA Western Conference throughout most of the 2011-12 regular season, the Okahoma City Thunder were tracked down, and then over-taken, by the white hot San Antonio Spurs. Thanks to a 10-0 run to close out the season, the Spurs (50-16) won the West by three games over the Thunder (47-19).
However, just as it is in the East with the Bulls and Heat, Oklahoma comes in at +110 favorites over first place San Antonio (+190) in NBA West. One notable difference in the West is the gap between the second and third favorites. In the East, the Boston Celtics drop off by a total of +740 from the Chicago Bulls. Over in the West, the Los Angeles Lakers are just +460 behind the Spurs with a +650 West Championship betting line.

The Memphis Grizzles are also at +1100 and the defending NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks own +1800 odds.
