Sports Betting never goes exactly to form and that is certainly true in pro hoops. Yet a look at the Eastern Conference so far has plenty of clues for the rest of the sports betting online season. The New York Knicks have been in turmoil for several years now and have had their share of bad sports betting headlines for 2008-09.
New York began the season just 11-14 straight up and easily had one of the worst reputations in the sports betting online community. Yet the Knicks were clicking at a mark of 15-10 against the sports betting board and as a sports betting online dog they were 12-8 against the spread.
This is a great lesson on how some times bad news can be great news when looking at the odds. The Milwaukee Bucks have been a strong sports betting value for the first two months of NBA action. With a new no-nonsense coach in Scott Skiles Milwaukee has been a sports betting money machine for the first two months of the year.
Despite an 11-16 straight up record the Bucks were 17-9-1 against the sports betting board. This is clearly a case of a team with a long term losing reputation that is underrated by the masses because of their ignorance about Skiles and the effort that he demands.
Plus with Michael Redd and Andrew Bogut the Bucks are not without talent. Another excellent sports betting surprise value out of the NBA Eastern Conference is the Charlotte Bobcats. Just like the Bucks the Bobcats have a sports betting reputation on the street as losers year after year.
As one of the least appealing teams on the board Charlotte often brings extra sports betting value. Despite a straight up record of 8-18 the Bobcats were a profitable 15-11 against the spread. Detroit is on the opposite side of the sports betting story as a clearly over-valued team. The Pistons were 14-9 straight up bust just 11-12 against the number.
