Which teams in 2009 NBA Playoffs odds have the best offenses and which teams have the best defenses? Let’s take a look at how each of the 16 teams ranks heading into the 2009 NBA Playoffs betting.
NBA Playoffs betting numbers tell us the Los Angeles Lakers have the top offense of the 16 playoff teams. Actually, most of the top offenses in NBA Playoffs betting are in the Western Conference. The Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz are 2nd and third behind the Lakers in offensive numbers of the playoff teams. The Chicago Bulls are the first team from the Eastern Conference to average more than 100 points per game. They are just ahead of Dallas and Orlando. Boston and Cleveland are the next two teams on defense in NBA Playoffs betting.
The teams that enter NBA Playoffs betting with offenses that put up less than 100 points per game are the Portland Trail Blazers, Houston Rockets, Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio Spurs, New Orleans Hornets and Detroit Pistons.
Defense is perhaps even more important in NBA Playoffs betting. The top two defensive teams are in the Eastern Conference as Cleveland is #1 and Boston #2. San Antonio and New Orleans are third and fourth in defense as we consider NBA Playoffs odds. The Magic, Pistons, Rockets and Blazers are all right together following New Orleans as NBA Playoffs betting numbers indicate. Atlanta and Philadelphia also give up less than 100 points per game on defense as does Miami. The Lakers are right around that 100 point mark along with Dallas. Utah and Denver are just over that mark as NBA Playoffs betting stats show. Chicago gives up more than 102 points per game on defense which is the worst mark of any of the NBA Playoffs betting teams in 2009.
The Lakers are the favorite in the Western Conference in NBA Playoffs betting but they do have a weakness as they don’t play much defense. Their numbers are somewhat slighted though since Andrew Bynum missed a lot of time and he will be back for the playoffs. The Eastern Conference favorites in NBA Playoffs odds are Cleveland and Boston and they both play excellent defense.
