With the NBA season rapidly approaching, many sports enthusiasts and sports betting aficionados are starting to look for insider info. In most cases, the knowledge you gain about the teams in the NBA, the better equipped you will be to make solid bets. There have been a lot of developments in the off season that are sure to make a big difference in the coming year. For many people who bet on NBA games, their allegiance is to no one team which allows them to bet on any game without hesitation. Here are a few predictions that can help you place sound bets during this NBA season.
King James Back to Cleveland
One of the biggest stories in the off season is the move Lebron James made from the Miami Heat back to his Cleveland Cavaliers. This move was somewhat unexpected and has many people buzzing about the Cavs again. With King James at the helm, many people are thinking the Cavs may have a shot to win their division and possibly the championship. Depending on how Lebron works with his new teammates, the Cavs could be contenders for a long time to come.
The Loss of Heat in Miami
With the loss of one of their key players in the off season, many people are doubting the worth of the Miami Heat this year. Even though the Heat still has great players, such as Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosch, it may not be enough for them to reach the status they once enjoyed. The Heat have drafted many top-notch college recruits, but they are still a bit green and lack the knowledge to fill the huge void left behind.
The Returning Champs
Another team many people are keeping their eye on to do big things this year is the returning champs in San Antonio. Last year, Tony Parker and his team were touted as the underdog when they went against Lebron and the Heat. They proved many of their critics wrong by beating the Heat and going on to win the national championship. The same team is back this year and looking to win back to back titles, and many analysts believe they can do just that. If you are looking for the closest thing to a sure bet this season, then the Spurs may be just the right choice for you.
