LeBron James odds shift dramatically
The news surrounding LeBron James’ upcoming free agency is coming at a fast and furious pace, and it’s caused a big adjustment in the Americas Cardroom sportsbook odds.
The official special prop wager reads as follows: Which team will LeBron James be on for the first regular season game next year?
The current odds are listed below, with the odds from just four days ago listed in parenthesis. As you can see, the L.A. Lakers (-130) are now the heavy favorite to land James this offseason. The big recent news that broke was that James’ son has committed to play basketball at a Los Angeles high school.
The Philadelphia 76ers (+499) are the big loser in this scenario as they were just recently the favorite. Teaming with holdovers Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid would mean a great shot at a 9th-straight Eastern Conference title for James.
However, it appears that the pull of Hollywood from a business aspect and the fact that James can bring along another star with him (Paul George?) could be too hard to pass up. We will continue to keep you up-to-date on the latest Lebron news, and odds changes.
