But sometimes the old reliable choice is the best. Take for example the NBA, long a mainstay of the online betting world, which is in the midst in one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory. Online betting fans have been disappointed of late with the poor level of competition in the NBA, but that appears to be a thing of the considering how crazy the season has become. Anyone even briefly familiar with betting online is surely aware of how competitive the NBA has become of late and nowhere is that more apparent than in the West.
The West has been ridiculously superior to the East since the dissolving of the Bulls dynasty in the 1990s, but rarely has it been as competitive as it is this season, according to many online betting analysts.
Not that the West has been a dud, but in recent online betting seasons there has been about three teams at most with legitimate shots at winning the online betting conference title. Not so this season as there are about nine teams with legitimate shots at emerging as the online betting champs of the conference.
And with all the crazy trading that’s been going on of late –and likely to continue up to the trade deadline- betting online experts don’t know what to make of any of it. At the top of the contenders list the competition is too tight for most online betting fans to call.
The Spurs, Suns, Mavs, Hornets, Jazz, Nuggets and Lakers all are about even right now in the eyes of the online betting public and would have nearly even online betting odds if any of these teams were to play today for a spot in the playoffs.
But right behind these teams, you have Golden State and Portland which both could make a big run in the post season and not surprise many online betting fans.
The Lakers seemed to edge ahead in the race with the addition of Pau Gasol, but just several days later online betting fans saw the Suns match their move by bringing in the Shaq Deisel.
It remains to be seen by the betting online world what impact these moves will have on the team’s playoff chances, but many online betting analysts think both teams improved themselves with the deals. In any event, it’s a good thing there’s still several months to sort out the online betting playoff situation.
