2016 NBA Playoff Series Odds

The NBA playoffs are underway and we’ll be tracking how the series prices fluctuate from game to game. The table below compares the opening series odds from 5Dimes and Bovada:

Matchup 5Dimes Bovada
TOR-IND TOR -390/IND +320 TOR -400/IND +300
GS-HOU GS -10,000/HOU +4,000 GS -10,000/HOU +2,000
ATL-BOS ATL -165/BOS +145 ATL -150/BOS +130
OKC-DAL OKC -3,800/DAL +1,900 OKC -2,000/DAL +1000
CLE-DET CLE -1,800/DET +1,150 CLE +1,600/DET +800
MIA-CHA MIA -150/CHA +130 MIA -160/CHA +140
SA/MEM SA -15,000/MEM +6,000 SA -10,000/MEM +2,000
LAC/POR LAC -360/POR +300 LAC -350/POR +275

It’s interesting to see that 5Dimes is offering better odds on every underdog with the exception of Charlotte (+130 vs. +140). Bovada is a very square sportsbook and they typically offer far better odds on the underdog, however, as we explained in a recent article, square bettors tend to gravitate towards underdogs during the postseason.

Although 5Dimes isn’t currently offering exact series odds, bettors can find that prop bet posted at Bovada.
