Easy Gambling on the Big Easy
On Sunday, New Orleans will take center stage as East meets West in the one of the biggest showdowns in the world of sports betting. Besides the fact that the game is taking place in post-Katrina New Orleans, this game has an extra special meaning for the local home team. Currently ranked #1 in the Western conference, the Hornets are sporting 2 all stars in Chris Paul and David West, in addition to their head coach Byron Scott who will be coaching the western all stars team.
For those of you who are looking to putting some money on the game at your various sports gambling websites and sportsbooks, we offer our 2 cents as to who has the better chances of emerging victorious. The fact that KG will not be playing is a major blow for the western team, who will have to do without the leading vote getter in this years all star game. What about Jason Kidd? If the trade goes through and Kid is an official member of the Dallas Mavericks, will he still be eligible to start for the east? I believe so, after all he was voted by the fans.
Come to think of it, I can’t recall when was the last time that an all star was traded just before the all star game. Assuming that Kidd plays for the East, I still can’t see them beating the West this year. Even though, the major online spostsbooks have not yet advertised their official betting line, it is expected that the West will be favorite. The West is too big and powerful for the East to handle, with just Dwight Howard manning the middle.
