What a season it has been. The Lakers showed serious promise just eight months ago but just as the season flew, so did the expectations out the window for their jam-packed superstar roster. While the Lakers quickly exited the post season, the rest of the remaining teams moved forward. Who will reach the Finals and be crowned 2012-13 NBA champions? Whichever direction the playoffs leads us in its closing stages, there is still plenty of speculation and betting going on as to which team will be favored to advance.
The clear favorites and best betting odds to ride on are clearly the defending champs, the Miami [C]Heat. You can currently ride the Heat train to back-to-back championship-ville with 4/7 odds. However they are certainly not the only team to spread your greenery on, both the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs are considered realistic bets to win the title as well. The odds for San Antonio are 9/2 and 12/1 for Oklahoma City – not bad but still considerably behind Miami in the books. Trying your luck in the Western Conference is the riskier move but with risk comes reward, and your bet in the west could potentially be the bigger playoff payoff.
Regardless, whether you win or lose, this crazy injury-inflicted asterisk season will inevitably be forever in the history books come next month. So in spirit of yet another busy Kupchak off season full of roster moves, quench your basketball fix by playing really cool Basketball slots games at online casino sites, such as the Dennis Rodman game and Slam Dunk. These basketball slots have plenty to offer from both a basketball and betting perspective, combining real player icons, cheerleaders, jerseys, basketball arenas, and nine pay lines with a wild symbol (the 23 jersey) to increase your odds of winning. Throw in cheap play and it’s a perfect way to spend the summer while you wait for a healthier 2013-14 NBA season to begin.
