Heat-Celtics Odds

The Miami Heat have extended their winning streak to 10 in a row.  The most updated odds for the Heat to win the 2011 NBA Championship at Sportsbook.com were set at +180 for a payout of nearly $200 on a $100 bet.

Miami beat Cleveland at home by a score of 101-95.

Dwyane Wade scored 17 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, Lebron James added 21 points and a season-high 13 rebounds.

Miami failed in its quest to be the fourth NBA team ever to win 10 straight games by at least 10 points, however.

Meanwhile the Boston Celtics ran their streak up to 11.

Paul Pierce made a tiebreaking jumper with 0.4 seconds left, Amare Stoudemire's 3-pointer at the buzzer was ruled too late, and the Boston Celtics pulled out a thrilling 118-116 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

The Celtics odds to win the 2011 NBA Championship were currently set at +220.

Incidentally, the team they beat – the New York Knicks – are finally winning again overall.  They came into this game with a 16-10 record having won 8 of their last 10 games.  The Knicks odds of winning the 2011 NBA Championship are currently set at 20/1.

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.
