Carmelo Anthony‘s pending free agency has been the talk of not only New York, but the NBA for most of the last calendar year.
Now that Melo has officially elected to opt out of his contract, who has the best chance to sign him?
That question has been on everyone’s mind and our good friends at Betfair Sportsbook, a subsidiary of Betfair Casino have chimed in by releasing odds on what team Anthony will ultimately sign with.
Betfair is one of the largest online betting and casino operators in New Jersey and has placed odds around the following bets.
With that being said, here’s a look.
What team will Carmelo Anthony be on when the 2014-15 season begins?
- Chicago Bulls – 5/4
- NY Knicks – 9/4
- Houston Rockets – 7/2
- Dallas Mavericks – 8/1
- Miami Heat – 12/1
- LA Lakers – 14/1
- LA Clippers – 20/1
- Cleveland Cavaliers – 33/1
- The Field – 4/1
Naturally the Chicago Bulls are the favorites with the Knicks not that far behind.
In addition to Anthony, there are also odds on where LeBron James will end up. While the on paper the Knicks seem like an extreme long shot, the odds aren’t that bad and you could still make a nice chunk of change if you roll the dice.
What team will LeBron James be on when the 2014-15 season begins?
- Miami Heat – 1/3
- Cleveland Cavaliers – 2/1
- Houston Rockets – 4/1
- Chicago Bulls – 5/1
- Los Angeles Clippers – 4/1
- New York Knicks – 8/1
- Los Angeles Lakers – 16/1
- Brooklyn Nets – 9/1
- Field – 6/1
