For all the Internet gambling fans and experts out there that thought the NBA Western Conference was still where the power lied in the sports gambling, think again. The Boston Celtics have sent a very strong message to the Internet gambling world that the East is a beast and barring any miraculous sports gambling comebacks; it’s just a matter of time before the Celts hoist their latest NBA Finals trophy. The balance has indeed shifted and the Celtics are indeed the best team in the NBA as their regular season Internet gambling record would indicate.
Through the first four games of the NBA Finals there should be little doubt as to which the better team in the Internet gambling odds has been. The first two wins by the Celtics at home were expected and not much Internet gambling insight was gained by the Celtics’ initial success. Perhaps more than anything the Lakers showed sports gambling fans a glimpse of hope by nearly completing a 24-point comeback (a deficit that would ring with Internet gambling déjà vu when the series shifted to L.A.).
As the series shifted to the west coast little had been settled in the minds of Internet gambling fans, and if anything, the Lakers seemed even more favored to win the Internet gambling NBA title. The home team won a very ugly Game Three and was favored by seven and a half points by the Internet gambling odds makers before Game Four. But to the shock of the sports gambling community Boston not only took the win in Game Four but all but locked up its claim for Internet gambling’s biggest basketball prize.
However, as amazing as the Celtics Internet gambling comeback was in Game Four, it also proved that anything is possible and if any team in Internet gambling is capable of coming back from a 3-1 hole it’s the Lakers -no matter how unlikely the Internet gambling odds for such a feat might be.
