Atlanta Hawks Are 30/1 Odds To Win 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Championship, Too Low?

The Atlanta Hawks are preparing for another season with the trio of Joe Johnson, Al Horford and Josh Smith, and while in previous years this trio would create excitement for Hawks fans the oddsmakers have definitely soured on ATL's big three.

Is it a case of Atlanta falling out of favor, or have other teams in the conference caught up?

Courtesy of Bovada, here are each team's odds to win the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference championship. The New York Knicks are 7/1 to win the East? Seems a tad low. Indiana at 40/1 seems a tad high. What about the Hawks?

Miami Heat 10/11

Chicago Bulls 3/1

New York Knicks 7/1

Boston Celtics 8/1

Orlando Magic 12/1

New Jersey Nets 25/1

Atlanta Hawks 30/1

Indiana Pacers 40/1

Philadelphia 76ers 60/1

Milwaukee Bucks 60/1

Washington Wizards 80/1

Charlotte Bobcats 80/1

Cleveland Cavaliers 100/1

Detroit Pistons 100/1

Toronto Raptors 100/1
