(CBS) LeBron James’ choice to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers immediately shifted the balance of power in the NBA, and the Vegas odds reflected that.

In the moments after James announced his decision late this morning, the Cavaliers became the favorites to win the 2015 NBA title. The Heat? Well, their odds fell to 50/1 — middling among the other 29 NBA teams.

And the reverberations aren’t yet done. Stars Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh remain on the open market, so there will be a little more shifting most likely. Here’s a look at how the odds currently stack up, though, courtesy of Bovada.
