I just took Nets - 145 for 2 units to beat the Bulls.  I bought the -145 before the series price goes up.

I think the Nets are very solid and couldn't believe the price to be honest. That price is about as good as it gets. I don't care about the fact it's a 4 vs. 5 seed. Nets could easily be a 3 and possibly even a two if the Knicks do not go one that ridiculous late season run. Contrast that with the Bulls who are a very weak 5 seed and are more like a 6 (or at an extreme, even a 7).

I feel like the Nets are playing better since the all star break with Deron stepping up.  I like how I don't have to pay a lot of juice with this series bet as well compared to a lot of the other series.  Bulls are banged up and I am not a believer in the Bulls.  Not sure how others feel but I think the Bulls are being overvalued here.

Nets are playing SIGNIFICANTLY better compared to the first half and Carlisemo plays a role in that now that Deron is comfortable with him and his system.

It won't be easy, but I'd be absolutely floored if the nets got bumped in the first round and when you are getting -140 for what needs to be a 'shocker' of a series result, it is a very solid bet.

Bulls get a higher price for busting two huge steaks at the end of the year of the Heat and Knicks.

Sounds good to me. Completely irrelevant in this series.

With all due respect, your reasoning doesn't make a whole lot of sense (see bold above).  Regardless of the seeds, Bulls took 3 of 4 this season from the Nets.  Not saying this has any bearing on a play-off series, but a Bulls win would certainly not be a "shocker".

When I say it won't be easy I'm saying it will go 6 with a close 6th game.

And for me, I'd be shocked if it got to 7 and the nets lost at home. 

This won't be a walk in the park but for a series bet it doesn't have to be. The nets just have to win the series.

And I simply can't see Chicago winning in 7 and I have ruled out Chic. being up 3-2 or better so nets winning is a reasonable outcome here. More likely nets in 6.

Every kid and their mom is on the Bulls. Squares falling all over themselves on Game 1 too.

Might be a good play.

I might jump on that for value, if they win the first game will be good to jump on Bulls then for the series.

Noah is also doubtful for this game because of the problems with his foot (plantar fasciitis in his right foot).

Guys is there any hope that I can win my series bet?  Thoughts about the series are welcome guys.  I am just curious about how everyone feels about this series.  Trying to figure out what to bet for the rest of the series.   This series has been very great and competitive.  I have enjyoyd the heart and passion both teams have showed in this series.  Both teams are going to fight till the end.

Nets proved for 47 minutes they could win in Chicago. Just need to finish the game off.  I actually like the Nets to win the series still.  Impressive performance to come back and win in a blowout after that debacle.

Not that impressive at all considering many teams win in blow-outs in that same spot over the history of NBA Playoffs after losing 3 straight games as the Nets did. It's more common then you think.

Rarely do teams come back and win a series trailing 3-1...........
