Online NBA Playoff Betting - Key Playoff Facts And Figures

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 4/20/2011 3:08:12 PM

At this time of the year, it’s all about the online sports betting match-ups and timing and what teams can force their collective will on the other during the NBA playoffs.

So with that in mind, as you consider your online betting for Kentucky Derby favorites, file away some of these facts about the teams left in the running to become world champion.

If Philadelphia is going to beat Miami, they will need Lou Williams back in form quickly. He has averaged almost 14 a game off the bench but has been hampered by a hamstring.

The Heat appears to be peaking at the right time winning 15 of their last 18. Coach Spoelstra has settled on a starting team that is well balanced with Mike Bibby and Zydrunas Ilgauskas joining the big three of LeBron, D Wade and Chris Bosh.

Fans may need some No-doze pills to get through the Orlando/Atlanta series. For those hoop sports betting bonus bettors that adore totals, know that the Hawks went under in 8 of their last 10 during the regular season and Orlando was under 21-9-1 in their last 31 games.

San Antonio was taken back by the late-season injury to Mano Ginobili, who is arguably their best player, and if he can’t go it will change the complexion of the series vs. Memphis.

The Spurs are not huge down low either and that will hurt against lefty Zach Randolph and power player Marc Gasol.

The Grizzlies scored more points in the paint than any team in the league this season at 51.

The Lakers got a break drawing the Hornets. They won all 4 games in the series this season by an average of almost 11 when covering thrice.

As for the Hornets, they stumbled late losing their last 3 games of the season by 22 points a game.

Portland will try to upset the Mavericks and they won 22 of their last 32 of the season, covering in 15 of 22.

They play hard and now they have a potential defensive stopper in Gerald Wallace. This guy is athletic, he has no fear, and he plays both ends.

One of the more intriguing opening match-ups will be the Denver Nuggets and the Orlando Thunder.

Denver is just a new team without Carmelo Anthony as they are sharing the ball, playing much better defense and flat –out having more fun.

Denver won 18 of 25 after Melo was booted beating some good teams in the process. The Nuggets will have to get over some injuries and get over them fast. One of their best players, Arron Afflalo has a hamstring. Birdman Anderson has been hurt all year. Nene, who will have to battle Kendrick Perkins, has a shoulder and point guard Ty Lawson has an ankle, as does Danilo Gallinari and Russian center Timofey Mozgov.

Serge Ibaka has thrived since Perkins joined the Thunder and they have a good stopper in Thabo Sefolosha. It’s not secret they also have two of the best in the game in Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant but sixth man James Hardin stirs the drinks.

He has averaged in the high teens since the All Star break and does everything needed to change the outcome of games.

Here’s hoping you can take some of these facts to the bank and cash some bets.
