What happened to the competition in this year’s NBA betting odds playoffs? Remember when the NBA playoff betting was meant to fight to the death between two evenly matched teams, the cream of the crop, in a bid win a hard fought battle and advance to the next round of the NBA playoff betting, inching closer and closer to the hallowed NBA Finals odds action?
Not this year. Not in the 2010 NBA postseason basketball betting. What started off as a very promising NBA playoff betting season with the #8 seed in the West pushing the defending NBA betting champ to the brink and several Game sevens erupting in the Eastern Conference has devolved into one of the most boring post seasons in recent NBA betting odds history.
If it wasn’t for the Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers series the conference semi-finals in this year’s NBA playoff betting experience would be about as fun as watching defenseless baby seal get clubbed to death. Three of the four Conference semi-final series were sweeps in a bit of shocking, but nonetheless un-compelling, NBA odds betting development.
What looked on paper to be a very interesting NBA betting odds matchup between “los Suns” and the San Antonio Spurs turned out to be a four-game dud. The Suns dominated this basketball betting matchup with nary an interesting moment in between. And the Utah Jazz vs the LA Lakers; arch-rivals in the West and two enemies of the hardwood that had a well-known past?
Despite a few electric moments at the end of a few games the NBA playoff betting series still ended in a 4-0 sweep by the defending NBA Finals betting champs. And the Orlando vs Atlanta series? They should have broken out the brooms before this thing even started. In fact, there has never been a more lopsided series in the history of NBA betting.
The Magic not only swept the hapless Hawks but in doing so set the NBA betting odds record for the largest margin of victory. All that’s left for basketball betting fans now is the Boston vs Cleveland series –which is shaping up to be a beauty- and the hope that the NBA Finals betting matchup will offer a least a glimmer of competitiveness.
