Mandatory Credit: Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The absence of All-Star center Dwight Howard and the tough first-round playoff matchup against an up-and-coming Indiana Pacers squad have conspired to make the Orlando Magic heavy underdogs in the Eastern Conference as the postseason gets underway. Game One is set for Saturday, April 28th, at 7 PM on ESPN nationally and Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market.

The Pacers stand as 1/9 favorites overall to win the series, while Orlando's a real longshot at 13/2, according to one Las Vegas sportsbook. The odds for each possible series outcome are listed below:

Indiana 4, Orlando 0: 9/2
Indiana 4, Orlando 1: 11/10
Indiana 4, Orlando 2: 9/2
Indiana 4, Orlando 3: 13/4
Orlando 4, Indiana 0: 100/1
Orlando 4, Indiana 1: 75/1
Orlando 4, Indiana 2: 14/1
Orlando 4, Indiana 3: 25/1

Vegas has set some prop bets for the series as well. On the Magic side, the over/under on per-game scoring for Ryan Anderson is 16, per-game scoring for Jameer Nelson is 14, per-game scoring for J.J. Redick is 13.5, and per-game scoring for Jason Richardson is 13.

For Indiana, the over/under on average scoring for Danny Granger is 19.5, average scoring for Roy Hibbert is 13, average rebounding for Hibbert is 8.5, and average scoring for David West is 13.

When it comes to winning the championship, the Magic and Philadelphia 76ers face the longest odds of any Eastern team, at 100/1. Only the Utah Jazz, at 150/1, have longer odds. Further, Orlando has the worst odds among any team when it comes to winning the Eastern Conference Finals, at 60/1, compared to Philadelphia at 50/1; the Miami Heat, at 4/5, are favored there.
