NBA Championship Betting Odds – To Live and Die in L.A.

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/11/2010 3:05:24 PM

Into the second half of the season, the online betting odds continue to favor the dynamo Los Angeles Lakers to take home the NBA Championships. L.A. continues to perform exceptionally – even in the face of losing their star to injury. The team has revealed its depth this season, but make no mistake – without Kobe, the sports betting line favorite Lakers could be seriously upset this season.

NBA Championship Betting Odds: Los Angeles Lakers

  • Cleveland Cavaliers likely to meet favorite Lakers in Championship
  • Celtics a possible contender this year?
  • Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder potential sleepers?

NBA Championship Betting Odds: Who Will Win West

The championship favorite Lakers are obviously tipped to win the western conference. With more injuries or some other catastrophe, the Denver Nuggets or Utah Jazz are dark horses, but it would take some sort of serious shakeup for the Lakers to lose their number one spot. The team has consistently risen to the occasion in the face of injury this season. Players especially like Lamar Odom have shown what they will do when given more time on the court.

NBA Championship Betting Odds: Who Will Win East

The Cleveland Cavaliers are the sportsbook favorite to win the Eastern Conference. LeBron and the James Gang have been a serious threat all season, and with defense from Shaq and an eye on championship glory, the Cavs will win the conference, and are certainly hot prospects to meet Los Angeles in the championships.

NBA Championship Betting Odds: Championship Favorites

2009 champions L.A. Lakers are certainly favorites to take the 2010 crown. Despite their continued dominance, the Lakers are vulnerable in one area. While the plague of injuries besieging the Los Angeles Lakers did not seem to hamper their performance during the regular season, it is tough to see them winning the championships without Kobe. With injuries to their star as well as other players like Andrew Bynum, the Lakers were forced to compensate – the depth of the team has certainly been made apparent in their performances. Ron Artest’s scoring and defense, as well as Lamar Odom’s serious rebound game have signaled just some of what the team has to offer. Regardless, sports betting fans know that if the Lakers lose Kobe, their championship hopes could die in the playoffs.

Cleveland is also right there in the front-running for the NBA championships in 2010. LeBron James and Shaq will look to seek revenge on their rival defending champs, and cap off a phenomenal year with a dominant postseason.

Don’t sleep on the Boston Celtics as another contender this year. Currently fourth in the Eastern Conference, the team’s aging roster does them no favors, but the championship experience of Rasheed Wallace, as well as the tenacity of veterans Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen cannot be discounted. Additionally, all-star guard Rajon Rondo continues to impress in the backcourt and, with the aid of his veteran teammates, could ultimately help propel the team to glory in the postseason.

NBA Championship Betting Odds: Championship Sleepers

The Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder are potential sleeper teams this year. The Heat, currently 7th seed, have a potential postseason breakout star in Beasley, and match up well with potential postseason rivals Orlando. Conversely, The OKC Thunder, lead by stars Durant and Westbrook, also look to upset the favorites with help from Sefolosha – who can shut down most opposing teams’ lead scorers. Meanwhile, Harden can give the Thunder serious points off the bench, and Green’s defensive help could prove invaluable.

NBA Championship Betting Odds: Outlook & Pick

The streak will continue this year, with the Los Angeles Lakers poised to steamroll through the playoffs, and take the crown for the second year in a row. After a long period of rebuilding, the team looks once again to establish their dominance in the league. Look for a performance reminiscent of their run in the finals last year, where they outclassed the Magic in five. Barring some catastrophic event, Kobe and the Lakers will make it two in a row.

CRAIG’s Pick: Los Angeles Lakers
