The Atlanta Hawks are in the playoffs for the sixth straight season yet they aren't providing the odds makers with a lot of confidence for them to stick around for long. Bovada currently lists the Hawks with 66/1 odds to take home the Eastern Conference crown and make a trip to the NBA Finals.

To put that in perspective only the Milwaukee Bucks at 200/1 have worse odds in either conference to make The Finals. The worst odds for a conference championship belong to the Houston Rockets who are at 50/1.

The Miami Heat enter the playoffs as the overwhelming favorite to win the championship with 2/3 odds. They are followed by the Oklahoma City Thunder (17/4), the San Antonio Spurs (10/1) and the New York Knicks (16/1). Atlanta currently has 150/1 odds to take home the NBA Championship which is again better than only the Milwaukee Bucks who are at 500/1.
