Spurs favored to win Finals over Lakers



This can't be right, can it? Who, in their right mind, would seriously say that the Spurs were favored over the Lakers to win the Finals, much less make it? Well, no surpise.... heeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny Hollinger! According to today's Playoff Odds, San Antonio has a 18.4% chance to make the Finals over LA's 16.5%, and has a 9.1% chance to win, versus 7.7% for LA. However, if you know anything about Hollinger, this doesn't make SA the favorites in the West. Hollinger still has a decade-long boner for Jerry Sloan and the Jazz, who love to blow people out, but can't win a game on the road to save their lives. John still sees the Jazz with a 24.8% chance to make the Finals, and 12.6% chance to win the whole shebang.
