NBA Playoffs: Championship Futures

We’re only a week into the 2017 NBA playoffs but the first round has been as topsy-turvy as it’s been in quite some time. When it comes to odds lists, one team remains the heavy favorite to go all the way.

At Bovada, the Golden State Warriors are -200 chalk to win the NBA title with the Cleveland Cavaliers (+350), San Antonio Spurs (+650), Houston Rockets (+1400), Los Angeles Clippers (+3300), Washington Wizards (+3300), Boston Celtics (+5000) and Chicago Bulls (+5000) at the top of the list.

The Injuries That Matter When Betting NBA Playoffs

If you follow my content here or on Twitter, then you know by now that I often talk about avoiding overreactions to injuries in sports betting — especially in pro sports. 

Usually sportsbooks know about the injury and if it’s a star player, they have a solid feel on what the adjustment should be. You’re not going to get much of an advantage in these spots. 

That doesn’t mean you should assume the books are always one step ahead of the public. Occasionally they are caught as off guard as you are and these are the situations where you really want to pay attention.

UFC 212: Aldo vs Holloway Betting Odds

After a year of uncertainty, the UFC featherweight division will finally have some clarity once Jose Aldo and Max Holloway face off at UFC 212. Ever since Aldo lost a quick 13-second title bout to Conor McGregor, the 145 lbs division has been in complete disarray. Aldo now finds himself as the champion while Holloway holds the interim strap and a true king of the featherweight division will finally be crowned.

Garbrandt vs Dillashaw Betting Odds

Cody Garbrandt took the UFC bantamweight crown in emphatic fashion, as ‘No Love’ dominated Dominick Cruz at UFC 207. Garbrandt now sets his sights on defending the title for the first time when he takes on TJ Dillashaw this year.

Books have opened Garbrandt as a -140 favorite with the comeback on Dillashaw at +110. Coming off Garbrandt’s amazing performance against the once-indestructible Cruz, it stands to reason he lays some chalk in this one.
