2010-2011 NBA Predictions: Eastern Conference Preview

miami-heatIs there any doubt which team Vegas odds have picked to win the Eastern Conference during the 2010-2011 NBA odds season?

Miami Heat - 2/3 NBA odds

LeBron James. Dwayne Wade. Chris Bosh. The three superstars have aligned to bring a championship to Miami and put a ring on James’ finger. Vegas has placed them the heavy favorite to win the East and, if they avoid injuries and can find a way to share the ball, there is no denying this team has the upper end talent to get the job done.

Boston Celtics - 9/2 NBA odds

What do you do when you have three starters aged 33 or older. Add two guys in thirties, of course. Ray Allen (35), Kevin Garnett (34), and Paul Pierce (33) make up the core of the Celtics and they have added Jermaine O’Neal (32) and, yep, Shaq, who at 38 is nearing the end of the trail. Rajon Rondo, Glen Davis, and rookie Luke Harangody provide talent, youth, and energy and, in Rondo, the Celts have a star to challenge anyone in the league.

Orlando Magic - 11/2 NBA odds

The Orlando Magic fell just short the past two years and have the nucleus of a dangerous team. Dwight Howard is “Superman” in sneakers, and Rashard Lewis at power forward and Jameer Nelson at point guard offer scoring depth. Will it be enough to unseat the Celts and Heat as favorites? Howard can put a team on his back but he can’t do it alone.

Chicago Bulls - 9/1 NBA odds

Last season, at 41-41, the Bulls snuck into the playoffs as an 8th seed. Point guard Derrick Rose runs the show and scores over 20 points per game. Loul Deng averaged 17.6 points at power forward and Joakim Noah offers scoring in the post. Yet, the Bulls were a fringe playoff team last season so why the lofty preseason status? The addition of free agent Carlos Boozer elevates this team to a top 4 contender, though they still might be a few steps behind the Big Boys in the east.

The Eastern Conference is extremely top heavy, though teams such as the New York Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks, and Atlanta Hawks are also capable of challenging and maybe upsetting one of the favorites in the spring.
