Miami Heat Odds to Win the 2011 NBA Championship

With a win in Madison Square Garden Friday night against the New York Knicks, the Miami Heat odds of winning the 2011 NBA Championship remained at better than 2/1 or +225 for a potential payout of $22.50 on every $10 bet. 

The NBA is starting to live up to early expectations with the Heat finally coming into their own after a slow start, now winning their 11th straight game.  The New York Knicks, one of basketball’s most revered franchises, has a record above .500 for the first time in years and the Boston Celtics continue to look like a formidable foe for both teams in the East.  They’ve won 12 straight.

In the West, the Lakers have 20 wins yet it’s the one-time perennial favorites to win the NBA Championship, San Antonio Spurs, that have the best record in the league at 22-3.  Dallas has 21 wins and the Oklahoma City Thunder (relocated from Seattle in 2008) is promising to build a strong fan base in the Sooner State with a 19-8 record, the best in the Northwest Division.

NBA Betting May 10, 2021 – Utah Jazz at Golden State Warriors

With one week left in the regular season it’s all about playoff positioning for the teams still in the hunt. The Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors are jockeying for different spots in the Western Conference.

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

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

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

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.
