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.

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

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

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

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

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.
