2011 NBA Playoffs: Bulls Favorites At Home In Game 1, But Underdogs To The Miami Heat In The Series

The Chicago Bulls will face the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday in Chicago as they look to continue their march through the 2011 NBA Playoffs.

According to the Vegas betting odds, however, it seems as if Bulls fans should hope that every game is played at the United Center if Chicago is looking to advance to the NBA Finals. The Bulls are currently two-point favorites for the opening game of the series at 7 p.m. on Sunday night, but somehow are nearly two-to-one underdogs to win the seven-game series according to odds making site BetUS.

That seems interesting when looking at the playoffs schedule considering the Bulls will play more games at home than on the road and a Game 7 would certainly have the United Center rocking.

Vegas has been wrong plenty of times in the past though so, as Bulls fans, let's just hope that this is the case once more.
