The Toronto Raptors (-200) are basketball betting favorites against the Miami Heat (+170).

The second round for the Eastern Conference playoffs are now here and the online betting world can finally join the Cavaliers in saying: “FINALLY!” Crisis adverted by the favorites in their lengthy series, as they managed to put away the plucky underdogs that made them really sweat this time around.
With all due respect to the Grizzlies and Mavericks, the Spurs and Thunder are finally going to get some competition on the NBA playoffs. Sport betting insiders are hyping this series to be the best basketball we will get to see in the second round as both teams have been very evenly matched throughout the regular season. This could be a tight series that has the potential of going to a full seven games, and it really could go either way, but San Antonio does have a slight edge over Oklahoma City.
