Renewed Lakers-Celtics Rivalry JumpStarts NBA Offshore Wagering Action

December 1st, 2010 Online Wagering

For anyone that has ever had even a passing interest in basketball betting and offshore wagering via the Internet the 2010 NBA Finals has been a godsend.

For too long the NBA Finals betting action has been pedestrian and predictable but this year’s basketball betting championship pairing of the two most storied franchises in the NBA odds action was just the doctor ordered and online wagering companies and sports betting fans alike are reaping the benefits.

Most basketball betting fans will recall that this year’s NBA Finals betting matchup is a rematch of the 2008 NBA Finals.  That was a great series on paper that fizzled once the action begin on the court with the Celtics winning handedly (4-2) in six games.

But this year the NBA Finals betting action has finally lived up to the hype with the series tied 2-2 after four games.  On paper, entering this basketball betting series, it looked as if the Lakers would dominate this offshore wagering match and online wagering companies posted betting lines that heavily favored LA.

However, Boston has been a formidable and resourceful opponent.  The Lakers have more talent and are better at almost every position on the floor yet the teams are deadlocked in the win-loss column.  There has been strong insinuations that the NBA referring crews have had an influence on the outcome of the NBA Finals betting results thus far, and if you reference more than a few stat lines it might be difficult to argue with this proposition.

But at the end of the day various players from both teams (Derek Fischer, Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant, Big Baby Davis, etc) have stepped when the game was on the line and delivered the goods.  That has had nothing to do with the referees but rather big time player stepping up in big NBA betting moments.

With both teams winning on the road and the NBA Finals betting series tied there is a very high probability that this basketball wagering series will go seven games.  And if that does happen it will be a huge boon to sports betting fans and online wagering companies alike.  Almost every offshore wagering company has extensive details and information regarding the NBA betting lines and if all goes well, basketball betting fans will have three more opportunities to wager on what’s shaping up to be one of the best NBA Finals betting opportunities in years.
