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!!

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.

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.

+181 at Pinny for Celtics wtf?

They are going to be favoured in every game they have home court advantage and last I checked they have it.

How do the linemakers come up with these lines makes no sense.

It was the same for Spurs/Hornets. Spurs were favoured for the series but Hornets were favoured for every home game.

But from memory the prices were fairly close to evens for the series, Spurs were perhaps very slight favs.

I am staggered at this price difference especially seeing how dominant the Celtics are at home.

True but only for a short while. At the books I place with, both Spurs and Hornets were 5/6 to start out with. Within a few hours Spurs were into 8/11 and as low as 8/13. And when the series got underway the Spurs were never less than 13/8 to win in New Orleans and obviously that price gradually grew slightly as the series went on.

The only way to explain the differences are that the Lakers (like the Spurs in the previous case) are and will be seen as bigger favs at home than the respective opposition. And therefore the prices have been set to that effect. However, in reality it still obviously doesn't make total sense as if the Celtics uphold their expected home fav status then the series will be theirs and yet they could have been backed at odds against for the series.

I am more into football (and I don't recall many similar situations in football) and tennis odds compiling, so I can't explain the true vaguries of it. Would be interested if there is anyone here who has worked on a basketball book or done research compile work to be able to explain exactly how this price situation is arrived at.

Mate that seems like an absolute gem of a bet, and an outrageous price :eek:.

I would have thought odds should be around 2/1.

Lakers have nobody that matches up real well with KG, so it's hard to see him being kept under 10 points and 10 rebounds each game.


*Is the bet for at least a double double? Or do you lose if he has a triple double?

That bet is fucking gold, insane price.

lol of course he would still win if KG register's a triple double. The bet is for at least a double-double.

I just don't see why books would take on such a risk without some stupid clause to save themselves.

Corals. Couldn't believe the price. They were also offering 4/1 on Ray Allen hitting the most 3's in the series. I was tempted but passed on it, thought it was definite value as Kobe was something like 8/11 fav.

06-06-2008, 01:33 PM
*Is the bet for at least a double double? Or do you lose if he has a triple double?

Yeah, as long as he gets a double-double, it's all good. Triple double so much the better. I couldn't believe the price either, it stuck out to me like a sore thumb. Only put £50 on it, but it'll be a nice win if it comes up as I just wanted to make a play to have an interest in the series.

So far this playoffs KG recorded a double-double 4/7 v Atlanta, 4/7 v Cleveland and 3/6 v Detroit, so he hasn't really come close yet over a series, but who knows, if this turns out to be a shorter series (4 or 5 games), then 12/1 looks very big. If it goes the distance, obviously the price becomes more justified, by I still think it's over priced.
