Las Vegas is one of the most important markets for sports betting, and the number of NFL teams in the city has jumped in the past few years, making the gambling industry a lucrative business.
But betting odds are also getting better for NBA teams as the preseason gets underway.
The Vegas odds for the Los Angeles Lakers are down more than 40 percent from their average this season, while the Miami Heat have an average odds of 1.9 percent, up from 1.3 percent last season.
The Philadelphia 76ers, who have a team average of 7.5 percent, have a slightly better record than average with an average of 2.6 percent.
And while the Chicago Bulls average 4.9 percentage points, their average odds have dropped from 2.8 percent last year to 1.4 percent this season.
So what are the Vegas odds going to look like in 2019?
With a team like the Miami Dolphins having their season opener on Sunday, the odds of them being picked as a top-three seed come the second week of October are likely to be high.
The Vegas odds could also improve with the Vegas Golden Knights being in town and taking on the Edmonton Oilers in a home-and-home series.
In Vegas, the average betting odds on NBA teams have jumped from 8.8 to 12.4 percentage points over the past year.
