The end of the online NBA betting playoff’s conference semifinal round is almost upon us. Soon after, we’ll be picking favorites for this year’s title game and after that, players who bet on NBA games will have to sit on their hands, patiently awaiting the start of next year’s season. The regular season that we just came off delivered a surplus of surprises, from Russell Westbrook’s impressive record-breaking campaign, to the Boston Celtics knocking off the Cavaliers at the top of the East. And while it’s true that some of that surprise element has leaked into the postseason, the series involving the Warriors and the Jazz has been rather uneventful.
