Chris Paul LA Clippers NBA Pro Basketball World Championship Odds

Share |

The big NBA trade heading into the 2011-2012 NBA season was sealed and former New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul will be an LA Clipper.

Oddsmaker the sportsbook with the best bonuses in the business has posted the current odds for the LA Clippers to win the 2011-2012 NBA championship at +1200.

Prior to the Chris Paul deal the LA Clippers odds were +2500.

The Miami Heat has been posted as the favorite to win it all in the 2011-2012 season at even money +100 odds.

For NBA bettors who believe the LA Clippers can win the Western Conference title they will find the return at Oddsmaker to be +800.

The favorite out the west remains the LA Lakers as they sit at +150 to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals.

The fan response was tremendous in LA as the club announced it had sold out its season tickets for the entire season less than 24 hours after the Chris Paul trade announcement.

A Clipper ticket will be a hot commodity in Los Angeles and bettors will find the Staples Center a good home court advantage for this young team.

Chris Paul will join Blake Griffin in the Clipper starting lineup alongside veteran Mo Williams as the shooting guard, newly acquired Caron Butler as the small forward. The Clips will go with young center DeAndre Jordan.

Off the bench the Clippers will look to veteran leadership as they claimed point guard Chauncey Billups off amnesty waivers from the New York Knicks.

The team has six proven players they can count on night in and night out.

Because they gave up a lot to get Chris Paul it leaves the LA Clippers with a lot of question marks on their bench.

Shooting guard Randy Foye shot just 38% from the field last season.

Ryan Gomes in his first year with the Clippers averaged 27 minutes a game and averaged 7 points and 3 rebounds.

At the center position is six foot night inch Brian Cook who lacks size. He averaged 11 minutes last season and pulled down about 3 boards a game.

The Clippers have to keep DeAndre Jordon out of foul trouble or they could be in serious trouble.

When the Clippers face the LA Lakers they will have problems defending Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol down low.

Of course the LA Lakers with Derrick Fisher has no answers for Chris Paul.

But if the Lakers allow Chris Paul to get his how can the Clippers find enough offense to get past their in town rivals?

If it’s LA versus LA in a best of 7 playoff series the Lakers size and length in the low post will get them past the Clippers.

The Lakers can sure get a lot more easy baskets than the Clippers in this possible playoff series in 2012.
