Betting on the NBA winners this season

With the play-off part of this season’s NBA barely a month away, it is a little easier for those interested in betting on the winners of the title to make a good bet. That is not to say that there is no risk involved, but most of the teams likely to be competing in the play-offs now appear to be clear, and we have a better idea of which sides have displayed the kind of form during the regular season to suggest that they should be taken seriously as potential NBA title winners.

Miami Heat, the side currently leading the Eastern Conference – and looking pretty much guaranteed to win it – are the firm favourites with the sports betting sites to take the NBA title as well. The best odds available for them are as low as 6/4, and their 16 match unbeaten run in the Conference indicates just how strong they are. Other contenders from this conference include the Knicks and the Indiana Pacers and, although they have proved less strong across the regular season, the play-offs are a knockout format. For the Western Conference the two outstanding sides have been the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, and the odds of 13/2 and 15/4 respectively, are likely to make them popular bets for the NBA.

Although one of the teams finishing lower down either Conference could still win the title, the seeding system of the play-offs gives a definite edge to those sides that finish near the top. Thus one of these teams represents the least risky NBA bet, but if you want a basketball gamble with less chance of ending up out of pocket, then a casino game like Slam Dunk at an online casino such as could be the best option. Slots games are always popular because they are cheap to play, and offer perhaps the best chance of winning a payout of any type of casino gambling – and Slam Dunk is no exception. The presence of a wild symbol (the 23 basketball shirt), which can replace missing symbols to give you winning reel, means you have a fine chance of winning money by playing it.
