In this year’s road to the 2008 NBA finals betting the Spurs still like the team to beat while the Cavs have seen their NBA finals betting lines hopes seemingly evaporate over the end the of the regular season. However, anyone that was involved in NBA finals betting lines last season remembers the underdog roll this team played to perfection last year and NBA finals betting fans would be crazy to discount this team any time soon in the NBA finals betting line race.
NBA finals betting line fans will recall that the Cavs didn’t receive all that pretty of a playoff seed last year either but some how scratched and clawed its way to a birth in the NBA finals betting lines. The main reason for the team’s unlikely ascension to the NBA finals betting was of course LeBron James, arguably the best player in the game. In 2007, the Cavs became a very unlikely participant in the NBA betting lines, but there was no question that they were the best team in East when it counted. Cleveland knocked off the heavily favored Pistons in the run up the NBA finals betting line action and sealed a birth in the NBA finals betting action.
James single-handedly beat Detroit by putting on one of the great all time playoff performances in the run up to the NBA finals betting line action, scoring 35 straight second half points. However, when the NBA finals betting line action rolled around San Antonio’s stifling help defense shut down King James and his teammates were unable to raise to the occasion of the NBA finals betting.
This year the team has gone through some drastic personnel moves in order to give it a shot at better results in the NBA finals betting line action. So far the team’s mid-season trades have yet to yield the desired results. The Cavs record during the end of the regular has been unspectacular and would lead few to believe that this is a team that will again be featured in an NBA finals betting line. But with solid outside shooting, strong interior defense and or course, James, it would be unwise to wager against this team reaching the NBA finals betting lines again.
