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.

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.
