2011 NBA Playoffs First Round Going to the Dogs

With the 2011 NBA Playoffs, dogs continued their winning ways Saturday and we almost went 3-0-1 but it turns out Memphis managed to cover the two-point spread against San Antonio. 

Just how good are the dogs doing to date?

Would you believe 18-7-1?

If you were betting $100 on every underdog in the 2011 NBA Playoffs so far, you would have achieved a profit of $1100 by now.  Bet $1000, you would have won $11,000.

Of course, you can’t bet all underdogs at a single book since you’ll be booted for wagering with a consistent pattern.  You would need to open accounts at several unrelated online sportsbooks and throw in a few favorites here and there on – say – baseball or the Royal Wedding. 

Gambling911.com’s list of sponsored online sportsbooks can be found here.   SBG Global, Bookmaker.com, BetED.com, BetUS.com and Sportsbook.com are all unrelated, so spread your dog bets among these books.

Don’t feel bad for the bookies.  They’re making a killing right now off the public betting favorites.

NBA Betting May 7, 2021 – Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers will both be playing after the regular season concludes. We just don’t know if they’ll be in the top-six or in the play-in tournament. LA and Portland are two of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots with the club missing out being relegated to the play-in.

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

If the Dallas Mavericks are relegated to the play-in tournament they can lay the blame on one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. The Mavs enter their contest with the Brooklyn Nets having won seven of their last 10 games with the three defeats all coming at the hands of the Sacramento Kings.

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

The new play-in format has the Toronto Raptors in line to potentially compete for a spot in the postseason. That’s good news for a club that has plodded along for most of the campaign. While there are some who detest the play-in the Raps certainly aren’t one of them. They enter the week 2.5 games out of the 10th spot and continue a difficult stretch of games against Western Conference foes with Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a freefall that even their two best players have been unable to get them out of. We all thought they would return to their early season ways once Anthony Davis and LeBron James returned, but that hasn’t happened.

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now. Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games. Their only loss during that span was to the Dubs and a setback to the same club preceded the current run.
