Between the referee scandal, Kobe ’s never ending fed with management and Greg Oden’s season ending injury it has been an eventful off-season for NBA fans. Thankfully it is time to forget about all of the drama and get on with the games. Winning their third title in five years, the San Antonio Spurs are Sportsbook.com’s co-favorite at 9-2 to cut down the nets next spring. Sharing the favorite label with the Spurs will be the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns. In case you’ve forgotten, the Mavs had the highest regular season win total but crapped out early in the playoffs getting upset in the opening round. No team made more noise and catapulted their ranking better than the Boston Celtics (7-1) during the off-season. By adding perennial All-Stars Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to a line up which already has Paul Pierce, the Celtics have and extremely impressive threesome. Questions about depth and age are definitely a concern in Beantown.
With his new home, Garnett is the 5-1 favorite along with LeBron James to win the MVP award. The best value might be backing Tim Duncan at 10-1 considering he continues to post dominant numbers and more importantly his team wins year after year.
With Oden’s rookie season down the toilet, bettors at Sportsbook.com are extremely confident that Seattle Sonics’ Kevin Durant (1-2) will earn the Rookie of the Year award. It is hard to blame them considering the sick numbers he put up during his freshman year at Texas .
