NBA Playoff Odds, Pacers Vs. Bulls: Chicago Heavily Favored Over Indiana

The Chicago Bulls enter their 2011 NBA Playoffs first-round series against the Indiana Pacers as heavy favorites to win, according to the sports betting site Bodog. The Bulls clinched home-court advantage throughout the postseason, while the Pacers are the worst team in the playoffs, with a record of 37-45. The Bulls won three of the four games in the regular season against the Pacers, so the favorite tag is justified.

Bodog lists the Bulls' odds at 1/35, and the Pacers' line at 20/1. Like we said, heavy favorites. The Bulls' moneyline is therefore -3500, while the Pacers' is +2000. Vegas also expects it to be a short series: the over/under for games is 5.5. Chicago has 2/1 odds to sweep, and just 12/1 odds to win in seven games. 

The Bulls are also among the favorites to win the 2011 NBA title. At 7/2 odds, only the Lakers and Heat are higher. If you're really in the mood for a longshot, the Pacers' odds to win the title are 250/1.
