NBA: Eastern Conference Playoff Odds
2010-04-15

The same four teams that held home court advantage in the 2009 Eastern Conference playoffs will do so once again in 2010. Clev Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica 1989 Suzuki GS500E Modificada eland, Orlando, Boston, and Atlanta have been head & shoulders above the rest of the conference when you consider the entire body of work. Now sure each of these teams has had its peaks and valleys this season, but over the course of 5-1/2 months, they have separated themselves from the pack. The bottom half of the East is intriguing, only in the sense that Miami, Milwaukee, and Charlotte have played their best ball down the stretch and have shown signs of being streaky good, or at least good enough to win a series early. The picture was muddied last week with the Andrew Bogut injury for the Bucks, and seemingly, Orlando, Atlanta, and Boston will be hoping for that matchup in the first round. The Bobcats are making a first ever appearance in the postseason. The #8 spot in the East came down to Chicago, who used a late season push to clinch the seed on the season’s final night. Here’s a look at each Eastern Conference playoff club along with their odds and reasons as to why they can/can’t reach the ultimate destination.


ATLANTA HAWKS

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +2000

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +1000

Reasons they can win: Atlanta’s franchise is in growth mode, with the young nucleus gaining more and more valuable experience each passing season. The Hawks won 50 games in a season for the first time in 12 years.

Reasons they can't: The Hawks’ combined record vs. the Cavaliers, Magic, and Celtics over the last three seasons is 13-31. Those are obviously the three teams standing in the way of a trip to the finals. They also don’t play nearly as well on the road as the “Big 3”.

StatFox Steve’s projection: Won’t make it past second round, received favorable matchup in first round vs. Bogut-less Milwaukee club.


BOSTON CELTICS

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +900

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +400

Reasons they can win: This is the most experienced team in the NBA when it comes to playoff success. Beyond the core title group of two years ago, the Celtics have now added Rasheed Wallace to the mix. Games with Cleveland of late have been both intense and competitive, leaving signs of a potential upset.

Reasons they can't: Boston at times this season has looked not so much experienced, but just plain old. Kevin Garnett in particular doesn’t seem to have the bounce he did two years ago in the title run. Orlando has been a thorn in the Celtics’ side.

StatFox Steve’s projection: On VERY THIN ICE in first round vs. Miami. Look for a long series which will eventually doom them in round two should they be fortunate to advance.


CHARLOTTE BOBCATS

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +10000

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +5000

Reasons they can win: The Bobcats give up the fewest points in the NBA and seem almost too naïve to understand they shouldn’t be winning this many games at this point. They also won 30+ games at home.

Reasons they can't: The only spots in which Charlotte boasts playoff winning experience are at Head Coach, with Larry Brown, and ownership, with Michael Jordan. Opponents won’t be overwhelmed by their youthful exuberance.

StatFox Steve’s projection: Won’t be surprised to see Charlotte win a game or two vs. Orlando, only at home, but that’s it.


CHICAGO BULLS

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +30000

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +10000

Reasons they can win: Last year’s dramatic playoff series with Boston in the first round is still fresh in the minds of the Bulls’ players still on the roster. The most important one, the player who took the team on his shoulders, is still in place: Derrick Rose.

Reasons they can't: Assuming Chicago makes the 8-team East field, this team doesn’t have the scoring punch of the ’09 team, ranking higher than only six other clubs in points per game.

StatFox Steve’s projection: With Cleveland’s penchant for taking care of business early, don’t be surprised to see the Bulls out in five games.


CLEVELAND CAVALIERS

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +150

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: -300

Reasons they can win: Is this finally the year that LeBron gets his ring? It better be according to those who could see James leaving this summer without a title. The pieces are in place, this is the league’s best team, and the Cavs should be at full strength for the playoffs.

Reasons they can't: Cleveland’s postseason memories with James in the fold have always ended in disappointment, most often making it at least a round shy of where expected. There really are no excuses this time for not making the Finals, but James’ free throw & outside shooting could stand in the way. Also, the Cavs have had trouble with the Magic.

StatFox Steve’s projection: With the conference finals loss from a year ago fresh on their minds, the Cavs take out the Magic then go on to their first NBA title.


MIAMI HEAT

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +8000

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +4000

Reasons they can win: Dwyane Wade. Let’s face it, the playoffs are built for the superstars. There are only a couple of players more capable than Wade of putting a team on their back and winning playoff series’. Plus, the entire cast has actually played its best down the stretch.

Reasons they can't: It’s very difficult to upset three straight opponents en route to a conference title. That’s the path the Heat have to take again in 2010.

StatFox Steve’s projection: Last spring, the Heat took the Hawks to seven games in the first round. Boston is in for that same kind of challenge this season. Don’t be shocked by an upset.


MILWAUKEE BUCKS

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +10000

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +4000

Reasons they can win: The Bucks have been undervalued by everyone from oddsmakers to the guy down the street with a passing interest in the NBA all season. As evidence, they covered pointspreads at a near-record pace. Even with the Bogut injury, Milwaukee had one of the top records in the NBA after the all-star break, getting after it on the defensive end.

Reasons they can't: The Bogut injury was both devastating and deflating. He was having the best year of his career. Without him, there is a big void in the middle. With him, there was playoff inexperience and a void in the 3-4 positions.

StatFox Steve’s projection: It won’t be nearly as easy of an ouster as experts are projecting post-Bogut, but the Hawks will take them out in a competitive series.


ORLANDO MAGIC

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win NBA Title: +600

Sportsbook.com Odds to Win Eastern Conference: +250

Reasons they can win: I’ll admit I was off in predicting a decline by the Magic after the trade for Vince Carter. He’s had a big year and is the offensive playmaker this team has lacked down the stretch of games in recent postseasons. Oh yeah, they also boast the league’s best big man and can shoot the 3-point shot as well as anyone.

Reasons they can't: Other East teams boast stronger benches than Orlando, and have been more effective on the road than Stan Van Gundy’s club.

StatFox Steve’s projection: Over the last three seasons, Orlando boasts a winning mark against all other East playoff teams. However, I still believe this is Cleveland’s year.




NBA: Charlotte uprising leads to upset?
2009-12-01

Since Charlotte returned to the NBA as the Bobcats in 2004, losing has been synonymous with the franchise. The most recent coach hired to lure fans back to professional basketball is the much-traveled Larry Brown, the Billy Martin of basketball for those old enough to have heard of him. This season the Bobcats are 7-9 and are second to Atlanta in the league covering the spread with an 11-5 record. On Tuesday, they’ll play as a home dog of 3.5-points to Boston. The Sportsbook.com Betting Trends page shows over 90% of the early money backing the Celtics, so bettors aren’t buying the hype on Charlotte.

Brown is an ornery sort, who eventually wears out his welcome, nonetheless he knows how to coach and win basketball games by maximizing his players’ talents. Coincidently, if the players aren’t interested in Brown’s methodology, they usually sit and are eventually traded.

Charlotte’s style of play couldn’t be more contrarian to say Phoenix, since they play a controlled defensive game, which coach Brown believes gives them the best opportunity to win.

While ranking just ahead of 0-17 New Jersey in points scored at 88.2, Charlotte leads the NBA in fewest points allowed at 87.9 per game and it’s just not playing at slower pace, since they are third in defensive field goal percentage (43.3).

To this point of the season, the Bobcats are establishing a quality home court advantage with 6-2 SU and ATS record. Charlotte ranks sixth among NBA teams on their home court, with a +9.1 score differential. Only the elite clubs like Phoenix, Boston, Denver, San Antonio and the L.A. Lakers have a wider margin playing at home.

Charlotte has won and covered four in a row and oddsmakers have taken notice. The Bobcats face Boston this evening and the Celtics have the second best record in the Eastern Conference at 13-4 (7-10 ATS).

Sportsbook.com has Boston as 3.5-point road favorites and the Celtics are 6-1 as road warriors, but have covered just three times. They also have won four consecutive games (2-2 ATS) and are 9-3-1 ATS against teams with winning home records.

However, don’t discount Charlotte’s obvious edges. The C’s have a bigger game at San Antonio in two days and might not bring game face to North Carolina. This is a test for the Bobcats to get a read they are moving in the right direction and they are 27-14 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points over the last two seasons. If you trust trends, especially powerful ones, the Bobcats 15-1 ATS record after allowing 85 points or less cannot be ignored.

Is Charlotte with wagering consideration tonight at 7:00 Eastern? Backed with the knowledge they are 9-1 ATS after a blowout win by 15 points or more over the last two seasons, winning by 9.7 points a game, than the answer is yes.

The StatFox Power Line shows Boston by 1, meaning their could be some value on the home dog at Sportsbook.com.
