NBA First-Round Online Odds: Brooklyn vs Chicago

Chicago Bulls: Deep playoff run on the horizon

Despite being without the services of Derrick Rose, the Bulls still have a major shot at winning this opening-round series with the Nets. Joakim Noah could miss the series with an injury to his foot, but the Bulls should still be able to recover. We are picking Chicago to win this series in seven games.

Brooklyn Nets: Making a splash in new city

After an off-season move to a new city, the Nets are making some more noise with a berth in the playoffs. They could really make a statement with a series win over the Bulls in the opening-round. Despite their exciting first season in Brooklyn, we don’t expect the Nets to advance past the Bulls this year.

For this opening-round series between Chicago and Brooklyn, we find the series line at Brooklyn is favored to win this series with a mark of -140 while Chicago is the underdog at +120. We still like Chicago to win this series despite being the underdog, so we will take them in seven.
