The NBA Eastern Conference is home to the always-interesting Southeast Division. The Southeast is currently home to the Atlanta Hawks, the Charlotte Hornets, the Miami Heat, the Orlando Magic, and the Washington Wizards. The Heat have won the most divisional titles since the Southeast was created in 2004 to accommodate expansion. They have also won a few championships with Shaquille O’neal and Dwyane Wade in 2005-2006. They also had a mini-dynasty as Wade joined Chris Bosh and Lebron James to form “The Big 3.”
The rest of the division has struggled to carve out it’s own piece of history. The Hawks have been good, but arguably the most average team in all of pro sports for the last 20 years. At the same time, the Washington Wizards have also been “stuck in the middle,” unable to make waves in the playoffs, or get lucky in the draft. The Hornets look ready to put their struggle-filled past behind them and start making a move. Whereas the Magic have young talent, but look considerably less ready to move up the standing.

Best NBA Southeast Betting Tips
The Southeast presents a lot of fun betting possibilities. All of these teams have legit talent that’s capable of upsetting any of the NBA’s top teams. This is particularly true if a southeast team is playing at home. Everyone has to work to win on the road in the NBA.
These teams may not always go deep in the NBA playoffs, but they certainly can win you good money on a single game underdog bet, or playing the over-under.
As a whole, your better teams in the NBA will win around 75-80% of their regular season games, and the same percentage (or slightly higher) of their home games. But that being said, even the worst teams in the NBA will win a dozen or so games every year, which makes them great for single-game upset pay days.
Betting the over-under can also be a lot of fun, with a high paced scoring average being the norm in the NBA. It’s not unusual for both teams to score over 100 points in a good NBA game. There’s also a lot of potential to bet, with every team playing 82 regular season games.
