There’s nothing that excites online NBA betting fans quite like watching history be made. Last season was full of record breaking moments, like the Warriors winning the most amount of regular season games or even the Cavs’ unbelievable run in the Finals. But there were other teams that closed in on making history, albeit for less honorable reasons.
The NBA is always brimming with headlines and fresh off the wire on November 1st is the announcement that Ray Allen will be retiring from professional basketball. Allen is a 10-time All-star, 2-time NBA champion, and the all-time leader in 3-pointers taken and made. With over 24,500 points in his career Allen will go down in basketball betting history as one of the NBA’s greatest marksmen. But with his announcement the NBA must prepare to bid farewell one of the most entertaining athletes it has birthed in the last decade or so, and fans must prepare for Ray Allen-less basketball.
It seems like only yesterday (no, really) that the Cleveland Cavaliers upset the basketball betting favorite Golden State Warriors to win the 2015-16 NBA championship. And here we are again, kicking-off – or tipping-off, as the case may be – yet another NBA season. As they say, time flies like an arrow. And fruit flies like a banana. So let’s see how the teams we love – and love to hate in many cases – did on their opening salvoes, along with their current odds to win this season’s title.
The Warriors may have the Splash Brothers, but the Dallas Mavericks have the Whiplash Brothers Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes – as in they probably had whiplash from how fast the Warriors tossed them aside to make salary cap room for Kevin Durant. They are part the Mavs’ reinforcements for this season, which will begin on Wednesday, October 26th when they visit the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse (yo ho, a banker’s life for me). The basketball betting odds for this match-up are… not quite ready yet, but let’s just push on right ahead nevertheless.
Back in May, all basketball betting and non-betting fans were eagerly anticipating the NBA Western Conference Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors – a clash of such epic proportions that it would have caused even the top sportsbooks to crash under the deluge of wagers placed. Alas, it was not to be; the Spurs succumbed to the Oklahoma City Thunder 2-4 in the Conference Semifinals (it could have been worse, though; we could have gotten the Thunder versus the Trail Blazers). Like Vladimir and Estragon, we were left waiting in the dark.
