The Rockets have two star players and expectations are riding high.

The team has worked all offseason to build chemistry and will start the season on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. But could the first season with James Harden and Dwight Howard end with a championship?

Well, here are the odds via The Rockets are 12/1 to win it all, tied with the Nets and Clippers. The Heat (2/1), Bulls (8/1) and Thunder (8/1) are the only teams with shorter odds. The over/under for wins is 55.

(Bovada says the Rockets are 12/1 too but has six teams with better odds.)

The favorite to win MVP, according to Pregame, is ... big surprise ... LeBron James -- $100 wins $150. He's won the award four times already.

He's followed by Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and Chris Paul in that order. Harden makes the list with the same payout as the Spurs' Tony Parker and the Lakers' Kobe Bryant: $100 wins $3,000.
