NBA Futures Betting: Odd swings ahead of new NBA season

The 2014-15 NBA season tips off on Tuesday October 28 with defending champion San Antonio Spurs hosting the Dallas Mavericks. The moneyline markets are seeing an uptick in movement as the opener inches closer. SBR has summarized key movements involving NBA teams projected to be in contention for the outright championship winner market.

San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs opened at an average market price of +600 to repeat as NBA champion.

The Spurs market price then settled at an average of +500. The following is the Spurs moneyline odds movement in the last three months at betting site 5Dimes (SBR rating A+):
