Things are heating up in the NBA season, with the regular season having ended and the playoffs begun, but with just a month left of the season those who have not already bet on which team they think will either make it to the Finals, or win the NBA title, will need to do so quickly. There is plenty of odds information available for those considering a wager on this, but which teams are rated amongst the front runners for success in the playoffs?
Well not surprisingly the defending NBA champs, Miami Heat, are amongst the favourites to go all the way again this year. They have been ranked amongst the hot favourites all season, and their form has justified it, but they suffered a setback when they lost their opening playoff semi final match to the Chicago Bulls. However with odds of 4/7 for the title, compared with 40/1 for the Bulls, clearly few sports betting sites expect the latter to come out on top in the semis. For those who consider the Miami Heat odds too low to be worth a bet, both Oklahoma City Thunder (12/1) and San Antonio Spurs (9/2) are considered to be in contention to take the crown away from Miami this year.
It is all very exciting for any fan of the NBA and sports betting, but in a month’s time it will be over for another season – and these fans will be looking for alternatives. One would be to play one of the basketball themed slots games that can be found at online casino sites such as Jackpot City, such as Slam Dunk and the Dennis Rodman game. The former in particular is highly rated by both basketball and online casino fans, and boasts reel icons of jerseys, players, trainers, cheerleaders and playing arenas. It also uses the famous number 23 jersey worn by Michael Jordan as the wild symbol (the one that can substitute for others to give you a winning reel). Slam Dunk offers quality basketball-based gaming and is the perfect way for fans of the sport and betting on it to spend the fallow months of summer.
