The odds maker at Bovada have the Dallas Mavericks in the top spots competing for 2015 NBA championship.
Anything can happen with the right chemistry, as we all witnessed in the 2010-2011 season, but this team is very talented. You can never count out a talented roster with elite coaching in Rick Carlisle.
The roster is very balanced with a point guard that knows how to lead a team to a NBA Finals (Jameer Nelson), a shooting guard that score whenever he wants (Monta Ellis), a versatile small forward that is one of the rising stars in the NBA (Chandler Parsons), a power forward that is one of the best ever in the history of the game to touch a basketball (Dirk), and a center who finish and bring elite defense (Tyson Chandler).
The Mavericks also have a deep bench filled with savvy veterans and young athletic players. How far will they go? Who knows, but one thing for sure is that they will be ready.
The ultimate goal for the Mavs will be to win their second championship, but the franchise would first love to have a home court advantage going into the playoffs.
