Rajon Rondo is fast becoming one of the best point guards in the NBA betting odds action. And he is certainly the best PG left in the basketball betting by a very wide margin. He is also the engine that makes the Boston Celtics run and the crazy glue that sticks this team together and if the Celts are going to win their second NBA betting title in three years he is going to have to have a huge series.
Rondo is having the best year of his NBA betting career and has proven that when he’s playing well, especially in the NBA betting odds post season he’s as a good a PG as there is. Boston’s basketball betting success begins and ends with this guy and the needs Rondo to be at his best when the NBA Finals betting action gets underway.
The Celtics point guard is coming off a career year in which he averaged 13.7 ppg, 9.8 apg and 2.3 steals per game –ranking in the top five in the NBA betting in the latter two categories. But he’s stepped his game up another notch in the NBA playoff betting action and has been the team’s best player in the post season averaging 16.7 ppg and 10 assists per game.
It’s easy to see why Rondo is so important to the Celtics’ success as so much of this team’s success on offense is centered around the teams jump shooters and getting open looks on the perimeter. Guys like Ray Allen and Paul Peirce who points generally from spot shots on the outside aren’t going to create a lot of offense off the dribble and they depend on Rondo to suck in defenders and distribute the ball to them. Without a penetrating PG like Rondo the Celtics offense would be very ineffective.
The Lakers are the most talented team in the NBA betting but their biggest weakness is at the PG spot. Derek Fischer and Jordan Farmar will be tasked with trying to slowdown Rondo and neither one is skilled enough to accomplish this feat. Rondo should be able to run wild on the Lakers and if he can post a couple Triple-Doubles during this NBA betting odds matchup the Celtics have a great chance of winning yet another basketball betting title.
