NBA finals odds makers have not spent much time talking about the Eastern Conference.
For most NBA finals betting odds the list of teams in the East with legitimate NBA finals odds hopes is a short one consisting of perhaps two or three teams. But the Orlando Magic has quietly secured the number three seed in the East and will a tough opponent for anyone to face on the road to the NBA finals odds.
NBA finals betting odds makers have heaped plenty of praise on the Detroit Pistons; and of course, the entire NBA finals betting legion of fans and experts is only all too ready to anoint the Boston Celtics the Eastern Conference representative in the NBA finals betting. Even the Cleveland Cavs have received plenty of NBA finals odds chatter. But the one team that everyone seems to forget about in the discussion over the NBA finals odds with respect to the Eastern conference is the Orlando Magic. Even though the Magic has been as hot any team over past month or so not many of the NBA finals odds makers have much faith in this team. And that could be major error in favor of the NBA finals odds fans.
The Magic have quietly gone about its business and preparing for the NBA finals betting race. The team has plenty of weapons on both sides of the ball and has arguably the best big man not only in the NBA finals odds chase, but likely in the entire NBA. Dwight Howard has stepped up his game this season is a candidate for the defensive player of year as well as a possible MVP candidate for keeping his team a contender in the NBA finals odds race.
Howard has long been known as an offensive threat and decent rebounder, but this year he’s stepped it up another notch and become one of the most impressive players in the battle to be featured in the NBA finals odds. And this year he’s got plenty of help to get him to the NBA finals betting. Hedu Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis have been outstanding this season and the three players form one of the best trios in the NBA.
Betting against the Magic to have a big impact on the NBA finals odds race would be crazy. If every thing lines up just right, this team could be even be featured in this year’s NBA finals betting odds.
