Chicago Bulls Odds to Win 2011 NBA Championship

They may be leading the Eastern Conference but the Chicago Bulls aren’t getting a whole lot of respect with odds to win the 2011 NBA Championship currently at 4/1 at BetUS.com.

The Bulls are not only 4 games ahead of the Miami Heat and 6 games ahead of the Boston Celtics, they are also riding a nine game win streak.  On Wednesday Chicago took the number one seed and home court advantage for the Playoffs with a 97-92 win over the New Jersey Nets.

"I'm happy, I'm definitely happy," Derrick Rose said following that game. "I wouldn't like to be on a losing team, but what's the point of celebrating now when you can get knocked out in the playoffs?"

San Antonio's 106-103 loss to Phoenix also helped seal the deal for Chicago.   It was the Bulls best regular season performance since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen collected their final championship.

"It's a whole different environment," Bulls Joakim Noah said of his team’s offseason makeover. "You're playing for something big. That's what it's all about, something you dream about playing in. Big stage. It doesn't get much better than that playing in the NBA playoffs for the Chicago Bulls. It's going to be a lot of fun."

The Miami Heat come into the Playoffs as a +250 favorite, just slightly ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers at 3/1.  The San Antonio Spurs were listed with 6/1 odds of winning the 2011 NBA Championship.

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now.
