NBA Playoffs gambling has been turned upside down by the Orlando Magic who can close out their eastern conference finals series with a betting online win over Cleveland Thursday. NBA Playoffs fans have seen the Magic take a 3-1 series lead as they are looking to pull off one of the biggest betting online upsets so far this season.
Cleveland was beginning to become a favorite to win the NBA Playoffs after their powerful performances in the first two rounds of the playoffs over Detroit and Atlanta as they went undefeated for those betting online with them.
But right from the start of this NBA Playoffs series Orlando demonstrated that they were not going away as they pulled off an eye-opening 107-106 win at Cleveland in game 1. The Magic, in fact, should have also won game 2 as they led the game with 1 second to go before LeBron James nailed a buzzer beater to even the series. Back at home, however, Orlando quickly recovered to take control of this NBA Playoffs series. In game 3 the Magic scored a 99-89 win and cover as 1.5 point favorites. Dwight Howard led Orlando in this NBA Playoffs win with 24 points and 9 rebounds. LeBron James 41 points were not enough.
Game 4 of this NBA Playoffs series was one of the best in the entire post season. Orlando defeated the Cavs 116-114 in overtime as Howard had 27 points and 14 rebounds. Rafer Alston had 26 points to enhance the Orlando attack. The Magic shot 50% from the floor. James had yet another strong performance in the NBA Playoffs with 44 points.
Cleveland’s lack of depth has been exposed in this NBA Playoffs series as they are looking more and more like the proverbial “one man team” that they were touted to be and they have yet to find an answer for Howard, who is emerging as a superstar and the best center in the NBA. If Cleveland doesn’t come up with an answer in game 5, they will get no further chances as they will be eliminated. Expect an all out team effort in front of the home fans for this one!

Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
