Last year Dallas won it all and was a 20/1 play at the beginning of the season.  Here’s a look at some value picks (aka long shots) that jump out for us:

 

Best Deep Value: New York Knicks

A playoff team last year, if the Knicks can land Chris Paul, they instantly become good.  The Knicks + Chris Paul have a legit shot at contending for the East and +1835 seems like a steal.  However, without CP3 they prob aren’t making it out of the 1st round.

Hit Or Miss: Portland Trailblazers

If the ‘Blazers can land a quality free agent or two and stay healthy, they are a tough out.  The short season favors a team like the Blazers as they may get well needed quality minutes from their vets.  With Aldridge leading the way and Felton manning the backcourt, they aren’t a terrible play at 25/1.

Full Court Shot: Los Angeles Clippers

Last year Memphis proved that teams playing well together are tough to stop.  Last year the Clippers finally started gelling late in the year.  In December the Clips had their best month going 7-8.  If looking for a hail mary play, the Clips might be your team at +5250.
