Boston Celtics fans have been waiting for this moment for two years -perhaps longer if you go back to the famous 1980’s NBA betting odds Finals duels between the Celtics and Lakers. After winning the franchise’s first NBA betting title in 2008 in two decades Celtics fans were elated and then quickly disappointed as injuries decimated the team’s roster and Boston was never able to defend its basketball betting title with a full arsenal during the 2008-09 NBA betting season.
But this year the team is at full strength and playing as good as basketball as it has in the past 20 years. After taking a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals betting action the team is now just two wins away from returning to the NBA Finals wagering action and defending its 2008 title properly. And if things hold true to form they will once again meet their old nemesis the Lakers in a basketball betting matchup that could not be more satisfying to the Beantown fans.
The Lakers also hold a 2-0 lead over their conference finals opponents (the Phoenix Suns) and barring an act of god or a re-writing of the NBA playoff betting history, the Lakers look like they’ve already got one foot in the NBA Finals betting action. It’s hardly stepping out on a limb to say that the 2010 NBA Finals odds will feature the Celtics and the Lakers.
Granted the Orlando Magic and the Suns may win a few games but for all intents and purposes the two final remaining teams in the NBA betting odds action will be from LA and Boston. And that’s a matchup that most NBA betting fans will be happy with. Thus far during the NBA postseason betting they have clearly been the two best teams. On paper the Lakers have the most talented roster in the NBA odds action and on the court they have been brilliant.
Boston entered the NBA playoff betting on a 3-9 slide but after knocking off the Cleveland Cavaliers (61-21 regular season record, best in the NBA betting action) and taking a commanding 2-0 lead on the road in the conference finals, it’s proved its best team in the East. And so it’s simply a matter of time before the two best teams in basketball betting square off in the NBA Finals action and as a sports betting fan you really can’t ask for more than that.
