    [May 18] After the Game 1 victory, Miami has become series favorites

    [May 16] Despite not having the home court advantage for the ECF, the Celtics have opened up as heavy favorite to advance to the Finals

    [May 13] After knocking out the 76ers in Game 6 on Thursday night, the Heat have moved to the favorite in the East as short as +110

    [May 12] Milwaukee has regained its status as East favorite after a stunner of a comeback Game 5 win in Boston, while the Heat have shortened to +150 as they head to Philly looking to lock up a berth in the ECF on Thursday night

    [May 10] The Celtics are your new Eastern Conference favorites after winning Game 4 in Milwaukee and also taking the spot as series favorite vs the Bucks

    [May 9] Despite winning both games at home in the return of Joel Embiid to the lineup, the 76ers are still only +550 to win the East, while Miami remains +225. The health and effectiveness of Kyle Lowry should be of concern to Heat fans

    [May 3] The Sixers may not be long for the playoffs if Joel Embiid cannot return quickly, as the Heat easily handled Philly in Game 1

    [May 2] Philly’s price has tumbled to +800 with uncertainty surrounding Embiid’s facial fracture and concussion, while the Bucks have shortened to favorites over the Cs after their Game 1 victory at TD Garden

    [April 29] The Sixers were the last team in the East to advance, and unsurprisingly are last among teams expected to advance to the Finals. The Heat actually saw their odds shorten when the 76ers locked up their 2nd round berth

    [April 28] With uncertainty over the status of Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry, as well as the Celtics facing the Bucks without Middleton, Boston’s odds have shortened to +150 to win the East while Miami saw a slight fade

    [April 27] After finishing off the Hawks in Game 5 without Kyle Lowry and Jimmy Butler, the Heat have seen their odds to win the East shorten to +180, just behind the Celtics

    [April 25] The Celtics odds as favorites shortened further, while the Bucks had no problem in Chicago without Khris Middleton blowing out the Bulls twice over the weekend – their odds have shortened back to +275

    [April 21] After taking a 2-0 lead against the Nets on Wednesday, the Celtics are now favorites to win the Eastern Conference with odds as short as +225

    [April 19] Despite holding a 2-0 lead over Toronto, the market isn’t seeing too much value in the Sixers to come out of the East. Their odds have just shortened from +600 to +550 at Barstool Sportsbook

    [April 14] With the playoff paths in the East now set, the Nets odds have faded to as long as +450 as their first two rounds would be against the Nets as well as the Bucks. Miami could possibly face the young Raptors in the second round – who are being picked by many to upset Philly – leading to a shortening of their price

    [April 11] Philly has seen their odds to come out of the East take the biggest hit, now as long as +600 as they face a tough first round series against Nick Nurse and the Raptors

    [April 4] Miami has reclaimed the #1 seed in the East, but the +500 odds show the books aren’t buying them heading in to the playoffs

    [March 28] The Heat’s odds continue tumbling, as they’re now +500 to win the Eastern Conference after losing the grip on the #1 seed

    [March 20] There’s been no major change in the Eastern Conference odds the last two weeks, but the Heat have shortened to +400 as they try to get healthier ahead of the postseason

    [March 8] In the yo-yoing at the top of the Eastern Conference standings, the Nets have moved back to favorites’ position with Kevin Durant returning to the floor

    [February 17] With the James Harden-Ben Simmons trade now complete, both the 76ers and Nets have fallen behind the Bucks – who are now favorites to win the Eastern Conference

    [February 10] Now a three-horse race at the top of the odds board, the 76ers jumped in to second at odds of +240 on FanDuel Sportsbook after acquiring James Harden and getting rid of Ben Simmons.

    [February 7] The Cavaliers have officially entered the race in the East acquiring Caris LeVert on Sunday, shortening their odds to +2100 at FanDuel. The Nets remain favorites despite their losing skid, while the Bucks price has tightened up as Milwaukee looks to repeat as champions

    [January 25] Miami still remains the third choice in the conference at the books, despite currently sitting atop the conference. Is now the time to buy the Heat?

    [January 13] Not much of a change in the Eastern Conference odds, the Bulls have shortened in to a tie for fourth with the 76ers at odds of +1000

    [December 10] The top three favorites remain the same, while the Hawks are now +1900, and the Bulls have improved to +1200 at FanDuel

    [November 1] The Bulls have vaulted themselves in to the top six with their phenomenal start to the campaign, now at odds of +2100 with FanDuel

    [October 19] Milwaukee has seen their odds shorten to +300 ahead of opening night against the Nets

      [April 22] Major shakeup in the odds after a night of Western Conference Playoff action. The Warriors are now the favorites after taking a 3-0 lead in Denver and the news of Devin Booker’s hamstring strain has sent the Suns out to odds as long as +450
