However, the one partial exception to this generality of online sportsbook betting has to be the NBA has which has seen it level of competitiveness and drawing power among the sportsbook crowd plummet over the past five years. Online sportsbook fans can remember back when the NBA used to be the game in town, even rivaling the popularity of the NFL, the undisputed champ of sportsbook betting.
But that seems like a long, long, long time ago to most online sportsbook fans. Since the Bulls dynasty was pulled apart in the late 1990’s there has been very little excitement involved in the NBA and sportsbook action has reflected this. The West became too dominant and the NBA Finals have become little more than an online sportsbook afterthought. The West has routinely pounded the East to death in basketball’s biggest online sportsbook event with few exceptions.
But this year it could all change and online sportsbook fans might actually have some entertaining basketball to watch come playoff time. The West is still the powerhouse in the NBA and sportsbook analysts would unanimously agree to this. But, there is hope is in the East for the first time in a long time as the Boston Celtics have been one of the best teams in the NBA online sportsbook competition. Sure, they play in a rotten division, but that argument doesn’t hold water when you compare their record versus top Western teams to the other top teams in the online sportsbook NBA lines.
The Celtics are a tough team and must be consider among the top teams in sportsbook action. But even if they Celtics are unable to knock of the West just yet, sportsbook fans should be treated to one helluva show in the Western conference when the playoffs come around. With a half a dozen legitimate contenders to take online sportsbook’s top basketball prize it could be a very exciting time indeed.
There has been a recent flurry of trades involving some of the top teams in online sportsbook betting and with the trade deadline still weeks away more action is likely to happen. Sportsbook experts expect to see Jason Kidd dealt out west before the deadline arrives and that move would only thicken the plot in what is likely to be the best NBA playoff mix that online sportsbook fans have seen in years.
