NBA Odds Post Kevin Love Trade

August 11, 2014

The Kevin Love trade did not come as a shock to very many people, especially the folks at South Point sportsbook in Las Vegas, Nevada.  They adjusted the line well over three weeks ago for a trade that “they knew was coming”.  The odds for the Cleveland Cavaliers to win it all moved down to 5 to 2 odds and have stayed in the realm ever since. The trade actually didn’t take place until several days ago. Many have speculated that it was going to happen.  The NBA can still in fact veto the trade according to this news article.

“We’ve had it at 5-to-2 for a while because we pretty much knew it was going to happen,” Bert Osborne, sportsbook manager said. “So I was ahead of the curve on this one.”

“Apparently, these guys should go into the business of soothsaying as well as being sports bookies.” says Scot Morris at SportsbookAdvisor.com.  “But to be honest, it did look like the trade was a ‘sure thing’, which is a bad word on our industry.  Really no point in exposing your book at better odds and there really is no major disadvantage to that action.”  he added.
