This Eastern Conference semi-final has quickly turned into the most thrilling series in the NBA betting odds at the moment. It has everything a sports betting fan could want: superstars galore, quality teams and most importantly evenly matched competition. With the NBA betting series tied at 1-1 this competition is shaping up the do the distance and if it does go a full seven game, no matter which team wins, basketball betting fans will be the ultimate winners.
Many NBA betting odds makers thought Cleveland would run away this NBA betting matchup, or at least take the first two games of the NBA playoff betting action at home. But that hasn’t been the case at all. The Cavs did take Game 1 at home in spectacular come from behind win but Game 2 was all Boston.
After jumping out to an early lead and controlling the scoreboard for most of the first game of this NBA playoff betting matchup Boston was a bit unlucky to not get the NBA odds victory. But in Game 2 there was little doubt as to which team would win. The Celtics put on a clinic led by crafty PG Rajon Rondo who finished the NBA betting contest with 13 points and a mind-blowing 19 assists.
If he comes any near to repeating this performance and his outside shooters stay hot the Celtics will breeze by the Cavs in Game 3 and likely Game 4 putting the regular season NBA betting champs on the ropes. The sports betting impact that Rondo has on this series cannot be overstated. He doesn’t put up the gaudy assists stats like Deron William or Steve Nash and he’s not a super scorer Chris Paul, but he’s the man you want in an NBA betting dog fight.
The bigger the stage the better he plays. And he gets it done on both ends of the court as his recent inclusion on the All NBA Defensive First Team attests. Much also depends on the health of certain key players in this NBA wagering series like Kevin Garnett and of course LeBron James. But if the Celts play like they did in the 104-86 victory in the NBA betting odds action of Game 2, they’ll beat the Cavs even with a healthy LeBron.
