2011 NBA Playoffs Lines

The 2011 NBA Playoffs lines were available at BetUS.com for Saturday April 16, 2011 games.  These lines are subject to change, so be sure to lock them in here.

The red hot Chicago Bulls are 11.5-point favorites against Indiana in the first game to be played on Saturday. 

Chicago is not only the top seed in the league coming into the 2011 NBA Playoffs, they are 5-1Against The Spread versus the Pacers over the last 3 seasons.

This game goes off 1:05 pm ET.

The Miami Heat are -10.5-point favorites vs. Philadelphia, another team that shouldn’t be in the post season. 

Miami swept the series this season, winning each time by a margin of 9-12 points. 

Miami swept the season series 3-0, with the winning margins between 9-12 points.

Dwyane Wade averaged 30.7 points on 52 percent shooting against the 76ers this season, with Lebron James averaging 22.7 points and Bosh 17.7 points.

"The whole team is good. They don't have that record because of just three guys," Philadelphia forward Thaddeus Young said. "This is really what they're playing for is the playoffs. But we expect to be ready to try and stop them."

Elsewhere, Orlando had an 8.5-point line vs. Atlanta in their first meeting of the 2011 NBA Playoffs. 

The stat to hone in on in this game is that 13 of 16 games in this series have gone UNDER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons.  The total on this game was 179.5.

In the late game, Dallas is a -5-point favorite against Portland in a game that, on paper, should be a close contest.  Dallas had a solid 57-win season but Portland comes into this post season with a 48-34 record.
