NBA Finals Game 4 Betting Odds

The NBA Finals Game 4 betting odds had the Magic as -2 favorites across the board just prior to tip off Thursday night, but here's an alert: betED.com had the line at Magic -1.   Only Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas seemed to be veering off the -2 number at -1 ½. 

"Obviously, if you want to bet the Magic at the best number, do so at betED.com," said Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com. 

Otherwise, if you like the Lakers as everyone else seems to (they were getting the most action), get in on them at one of Gambling911.com's other esteemed online sportsbooks.

Orlando is facing a tough task in trying to post back-to-back wins over the Lakers, who are 6-0 in the 2009 playoffs following a loss.  The two teams will hook up again tonight in central Florida, for Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

The Magic shot a championship series-record 62 percent from the field in Tuesday night's 108-104 victory.  Because of his commitment to USA Basketball, Kobe Bryant has been playing nonstop for three years and he appeared to be worn down late in Game 3.

The perennial All Star scored 21 of his game-high 31 points in the first half and missed seven of 10 shots and four free throws in the second half.  In the fourth quarter, when he normally shines, Bryant went 2 of 6, missed all three 3-point attempts and had the ball stolen on a crucial possession in the last 30 seconds.

L.A. still holds the advantage in the best-of-seven showdown thanks to home-court victories in the opening two games.  Game 5 will be played Sunday evening in Orlando.
