Hollinger’s Odds


Insiders can read the whole explanation, but basically John Hollinger used his power rankings formula, then looked at the playoff seedings, and came up with the following odds of taking home the rings:

  1. San Antonio: 37 percent.
  2. Dallas: 25.5 percent.
  3. Phoenix 11.6 percent.
  4. Detroit: 10.8 percent.
  5. Cleveland: 5.5 percent.
  6. Chicago: 5.2 percent.
  7. Houston: 4.1 percent.

The field — and, yes, this includes Miami — has very low odds according to Hollinger.
