The Celtics vs. Lakers 2010 NBA Final line was expected to be posted very shortly at Bookmaker.com.  The Lakers will be opening as a -6 favorite, Gambling911.com has noted.

The Lakers and Celtics, the NBA's premier teams for much of the league's history, will meet in the finals for the 12th time with Game 1 Thursday night in Los Angeles. They are the NBA champions each of the last two years -- Boston beat the Lakers two years ago, and Los Angeles topped Orlando last season.

"We'll see how much we matured," Bryant said. "They challenged us extremely well in the finals a couple years ago. Now is a chance to see how much we've grown."

While the Lakers were favored to win the 2010 NBA Final coming into the Conference Championship, Boston was a 5/1 underdog against the Orlando Magic.  The payout for a Celtics win would be $500 for every $100 bet.
