Chicago Bulls 2011 NBA Championship Odds

The Chicago Bulls 2011 NBA Championship odds had been set at 2/1 coming into its series against the Atlanta Hawks.  The Bulls were looking to eliminate Atlanta Thursday night where they would then head to the Conference Finals and face the red hot Miami Heat. 

The line on the Bulls-Hawks Game 6 had Chicago as the -3.5 point favorite at SBG Global

The Bulls took care of Atlanta in a 95-83 romping on Tuesday night where Derrick Rose scored 33 points and Taj Gibson scored all of his 11 in the fourth quarter.

"It's definitely fun playing against a good team," Rose said. "Coach always said we're going to have to walk through the fire together. Every series has tested us in every way, but I think that we're sticking together."

A win on Thursday night would put Chicago in the Conference Finals for the first time since the Michael Jordan era in 1998.

The Hawks, we should note, opened as big underdogs along with the Memphis Grizzlies to win the 2011 NBA Championship.  As of press time Thursday May 12, both teams were still alive in the Playoffs.
