2007 NBA/NHL Futures
by Ben Burns
Wow! Can you believe that it's already the first day of March? Naturally, most handicappers and sports fans are focusing their attention on college hoops. There's certainly nothing wrong with that, as it's sure to be an extremely exciting month of "Madness." Things are also heating up in the pros though, with both the NHL and NBA regular seasons beginning to wind down.
While"future odds rarely offer much value, they can often be informative, as well as interesting. With the trading deadlines having come and gone in both professional sports, I've pasted updated odds to win the NBA Championship and the NHL Stanley Cup below. You'll notice that the defending champions aren't being given much respect, in either sport. However, with all due respect to the champs, neither team has much hope of defending its title. The Hurricanes have been rather mediocre all year and the Heat recently lost Dwyane Wade to injury!
I'll check back in with odds to win the NCAA title as soon as they become available. Until then, enjoy the conference tournaments and good luck with your wagers!
