NBA Playoff Betting Odds, Eastern Conference

The Boston Celtics are overwhelming favorites to win the
NBA championship according to the latest Vegas betting odds as well as the more
accurate offshore
betting line

Curt Thomas is Chief NBA Analyst for GodsTips of He
is also the only full-time NBA handicapper in sports betting. The fact Boston
is the favorite is no surprise, but Thomas expressed shock at how relatively
little respect Detroit gets at 9/4.

“With Richard Hamilton, Antonio MyDyess,
Chauncey Billips, Richard Hamilton, and Tayshaun Prince, the Pistons are the better team (than
Boston) from top to bottom,” says Thomas, though conceding that Boston’s Paul
Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen are the “league’s best threesome.”

Last year’s conference titlist Cleveland is next at 9/1,
tied with Orlando, even though the
Magic finished a full seven games ahead of the Cavs in the standings.

Explains Grandmaster sports handicapper Joe Duffy, “We
look back no further than last year to see that LeBron James can carry the
Cavaliers, plus the blockbuster mid-season trade in which they got Ben Wallace
should pay off.”

At 25/1 Washington
is given little chance, but they at not as big of a dark horse as the Toronto
Raptors at 30/1 or the Philadelphia
76ers at 50/1. Coming up the rear are the Atlanta Hawks at 75/1.

“Athletic teams like Atlanta
give Boston trouble,” warns Cy McCormick of the online betting syndicate
