NBA Futures

Lakers +260 to win the west.
Here are some reasons why betting the Lakers at this price is a great bet:
1. The Lakers have Kobe and will get almost every single big call late in games.
2. Getting Bynum back will be a bonus.
3. Staples Center will be a tremendous HC advantage.
4. The Lakers will be 1.18 vs. Denver, 1.47 in the second round vs. the Jazz, and probably about 1.58 or so vs. the Spurs and 1.5 vs. the Suns or Hornets.

Celtics -125 to win the east
The Celts will cruise all the way up to when they play Detroit, and they should take them out in 6 games.

I agree with you on the Celts, the road should be rather easy!! As for the Lakers, I believe this is their year. Pending any injuries, they should win the west!!

Re: NBA Futures

Where did you get odds for Boston to win the East at -125?? The Greek is offering the line at -185. Rather crappy odds!!

Re: NBA Futures

Just for the record I am adding the Cavs onto my bets at +2200 to win the East since I am now giving them a legitimate shot to beat Boston and if they do that then I think they'll beat Detroit as well.

Re: NBA Futures

Your futures are looking pretty good right now desi

I think there might be value in the Magic to beat Pistons in the current series especially if Billups is unable to play game 4. Pistons are completely exposed at PG, a position where they had a big advantage over the Magic if Billups was playing.

BG . . . I agree completely about the Pistons being in some trouble without Billups. Their offense is already atrocious and now that Billups might be a little lingered their offense is completely stagnant. Thats anyone's series right now, as I think the Magic will pull it out tomorrow.
