I received this question via email today:
I just saw odds on the LA clippers(up 3-1) to win series at: -360
Just wondered if you thought that was a good price/bet? Seems hard to come back from down 3-1, but we both know stranger things have happened 🙂
I thought I’d share my response with everyone:
Marc, you are definitely on to something. There isn’t much worse for an NBA playoff team than facing a 3-1 deficit. The only thing worse is facing a 3-0 hole. How bad is it for teams down 3-1?
