The Pistons have a new president and coach, but their chances to win the NBA title next season will be worse, according to one handicapper.

The Pistons, who will be led by Stan Van Gundy next season, have the third-worst odds of winning the title next season, according to RJ Bell of pregame.com.

Detroit, which some projected as a playoff team before last season, are a 110-to-1 shot to win it all next season, tied with the Magic, Kings and Jazz. The Heat, who lost this year’s NBA Finals in five games to the Spurs on Sunday night, are the favorites at 5 to 2.

The Bucks have the worst odds: 300 to 1.
