My best NBA playoff bets: East and West champs

By William Hill  ( 


Before we get started, I might have forgotten to mention last week that 300-1 on Phil Mickelson to win the PGA Championship was a smart place to put your money. Hey, better late than never, right? Wow! What a moment, and what a sports day Sunday was. Almost a year ago to the day, Mickelson, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning gave fans their first sports viewing experience in nearly two months as their Memorial Day weekend match-play event marked the midway point of our sports layoff of more than four months. Since then, Brady has collected yet another trophy and Mickelson has won a record-setting major, and the contrast between this year and last couldn’t be more stark. We had a full Sunday of NBA and NHL playoff games, a full slate of MLB and the captivating final round of the PGA. Perhaps not everyone loves golf, but cashing tickets at 300-1 catches everyone’s attention. My guess is that the bottom part of the golf board will get plenty of attention this week as bettors seek that next long-shot score. I won’t give you anything that will cash at Mickelson-like odds, but let’s try to find some winners anyway.
