The Mavericks are the No. 7 seed and do not have home court advantage and with their less than stellar season this year the Mavericks are a 33-to-1 odds to repeat as champs. While the Thunder have the second best odds and are behind the Chicago Bulls are 15-to-4 to win the NBA title.
The Mavericks will need to play some of their best basketball to just get past the Thunder as they went 1-3 this year against the Thunder. The three loses were fairly close with a nine-point, four-point and a two-point loss this year.
