The NBA Division odds are up and today we’ll start with the Eastern Conference. Last season, these race wasn’t very close in the Atlantic as the Raptors ran away with it. That is not expected to be the case this year as it could be the most competitive division with the 76ers, Raptors and Celtics considered three of the best teams in the East. The Heat won the Southeast last year and they’ll be challenged again this year by the Wizards. While the Cavaliers almost certainly won’t be returning as the Central champions. These divisions look to be much more interesting than last season.
This should be a pretty interesting season for the Orlando Magic and I could see them surprising some teams. They finished with just 25 wins last season, but I think that number is misleading. Injuries played a major factor last season and if we assume health in 2019, this team could finish with a much better record than the projection.
