Just how many underdogs have won in the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs?

Those dastardly dogs beat the favorites in 6 of the 8 weekend games. 

Monday night the Pacers managed to cover against the Bulls with a 96-90 win.  They were +12 underdogs.  Only two Round One Playoffs games were scheduled for Monday with the Heat easily winning Against The Spread, a rare favorite to win.

On Tuesday, the dogs kept on barking.  Both New York and Atlanta covered despite losing outright.

At press time the Trailblazers-Mavericks game was still in progress.

To date, First Round NBA Playoffs games have gone 9-3 in favor of the underdogs.

This can only mean a bunch of smiling bookmakers.  Traditionally, the betting public backs the favorite.

You can bet on the dogs at SBG Global or, if you believe the favorites will turn things around, you can bet them as well here
