2011 NBA Playoffs: Dogs Keep Bookies Happy

2011 NBA Playoffs

Continuing a trend throughout the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs, the underdogs continue to be triumphant.  Following Thursday’s 1-1-1 record, the NBA underdogs unleashed a 2-1 showing to go 15-6-1 so far in the first round.   To put this in some perspective, if you were betting the underdogs since Game One at $1000 each time, you would have around $9000 profit.  A $100 bettor would have around $900 in their pockets. (tip:  You never want to bet exclusively on dogs at a single sportsbook as you risk getting asked to leave.  Always use a series of sportsbooks, including those found in the Sportsbook section of Gambling911.com). 

Bookies traditionally do well when the underdogs win since the public, as a rule, leans towards favorites.

Friday night’s games were a bit odd in that Boston easily beat the Knicks at home.  The Celtics were a rare favorite. 

Atlanta beat Orlando at home, however, in that game the Magic were away favorites.

The Lakers easily managed to beat the spread against New Orleans.

College Basketball Betting – Kansas Jayhawks at Oklahoma State Cowboys

College Basketball Betting – Kansas Jayhawks at Oklahoma State Cowboys

On paper this looks like it should be rout. The Kansas Jayhawks have won four in a row and seven of their last eight with the only setback to No. 1 Baylor. They are 16-3 overall on the season. The Oklahoma State Cowboys sit at the bottom of the Big 12 standings but got a boost by snapping a six-game losing streak with a win over Texas AM on Saturday in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. It doesn’t count on their conference ledger, but the Pokes should be a more confident group when KU visits on Monday night.
