Celtics vs. Lakers

Coming into the 2010 NBA Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics were an underdog to win an NBA Finals championship title.  After all, Orlando was perceived as the better team in the Eastern Conference and the Lakers the best team in the league.

That all changed but a few potentially lucky gamblers will be riding the Celtics to win the NBA Championship at 5/1 odds for a payout potential of $500 on every $100 bet at online sportsbooks the likes of Sportsbetting.com.

The Celtics seemed poised to beat the Lakers Sunday night and take the series lead at 3-2.  It's not over yet, however, as the remaining two games will be played in LA.

The line on this game was among the most fluid, dropping from Boston -3 ½ to -2 heading into Game 5.
