The NBA odds Eastern Conference wise are represented by the top two favourites and are being hotly contested by Chicago Bulls-Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The community can't request for more than what they have been delivered so far after LeBron James and Derrick Rose exchanged buzzer beaters, the series is knotted at two games each. Do not be surprised if the next two-to-three games are similarly impressive.
Since the start of the season the Cavs have had the edge to win the conference and they remain the favorites out of the East with 7/2 odds of winning the NBA champion. Not far behind, however, are the Bulls with 10/1 odds.
Something wagerers would be smart to keep an eye on is the health of Pau Gasol. In his very first year with the Bulls he assisted the team to a 39-43 mark versus the spread. While a healthy Rose is important to win it all, it's their steady frontcourt that assisted the group to carry on without him.
With the East's most highly promoted teams fighting in such a close and extreme series, one can't wonder however if this match isn't the informal conference championship in itself.
The Hawks and Wizards may take offense, however neither has the experience or the probabilities that Chicago and Cleveland do.
