The Pacers are living up to their name and setting the pace in this season’s Eastern Conference Central Division, with twenty nine wins from thirty six played. This has made for a great season so far for Pacers fans, and has also led to them being installed as one of the firm bookies’ favorites for their Division, Conference and the NBA Championship. The Pacers took the Central Division title last season, and it would be brave to wager against them retaining it this time, but can they go further and win their Conference or the Championship?
It certainly isn’t implausible, based on their form this season, but there is one major obstacle standing in their way: the Heat. Miami are surely the single strongest team currently competing in the NBA and the Pacers would need to get the better of them at Conference level if they want to have a shot at the Championship. Odds of 4/1 for the Championship, at bookmakers, show that a lot of people think they can do just that – although the Heat are favorites at 21/10. Indiana are also second favorites behind Miami to win the Eastern Conference, and if you don’t think they can overcome the latter, you can always console yourself with a casino favorite like Slam Dunk.
This five-reel video slot at JackpotCity.co.uk is all about basketball, and alongside the players, cheerleaders, trophies and sneakers on the reels, there are also nine pay lines available. Coupled with the wild symbol (the basketball jersey numbered 23), this definitely puts the payout odds in your favor – even if you are not one of the jackpot winners. Given that Slam Dunk (and indeed other, similar online casino slot games) comes with a strong variety of bonus games as well, there really seems to be little reason for not visiting one of the casino sites and taking it for a spin. You are certainly more likely to win money than you would be by betting on the NBA.
