NBA Playoff Odds: Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls Game 6
 
NBA Playoff Odds: Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls Game 6 - Chicago Bulls at Atlanta Hawks Game 6 Odds Thu. May 12, 2011 8:05 PM ET

Once again the Atlanta Hawks are in a do or die Game 6 battle, only this time around, they finds themselves up against the wall facing elimination against Derrick Rose and the top seeded Chicago Bulls; tip-off from Philips Arena is set for 8:00 ET on ESPN.

The most recent Bulls-Hawks line has visiting Chicago installed as 3.5-point Game 6 road favorites with the betting total lined at 179. Visit the  NBA betting odds page for updated spreads for the side and total on this as well as the remainder of the semifinals playoff rotation.

Game 4 of this semifinals match-up saw the Hawks go on a 10-0 run late in the 4th quarter to secure the outright win and cover in exhilarating fashion to even this series up at two games apiece. The Bulls entered the 4th quarter grasping onto a one-point lead in Game 5, but as the first couple minutes went by in the final stanza, it was clearly evident that Atlanta simply ran out of gas. Seeing this transpire on the court, Coach Thibodeau turned the pressure up defensively and the moved paid off in spades! The league’s top ranked defense forced turnover after turnover en route to building a double-digit lead before ultimately covering the 8.5-point spread with the 95-83 home win and cover.

The win moved the Bulls to an impressive 54-36-2 ATS on the year, and they’ll look to build upon their 28-17 SU & 27-18 ATS marks as a visitor in this potential close out spot.

The Hawks looked up to the task of possibly stealing Game 5 and heading back home for a possible close out game, but for some reason, the team ran on empty in the 4th quarter. Joe Johnson has followed up stellar efforts with complete duds all series long, and ever since running his mouth after Game 2, Jamal Crawford has been nonexistent in this series combining to score 32 points the L/4 games after scoring 22 in the series opener. Atlanta struggles to score as it is, so when it can’t get consistent efforts from its two main scorers, it has no shot of winning; especially against as stout a defense as Chicago possesses.

The Hawks enter this do or die bout 10 games up on the season in front of the hometown faithful (28-18 SU), but have only covered 20 of those games versus the closing pointspread; the Hawks are 4-1 ATS the L/5 times they were tagged a home Vegas Odds underdog.

Chicago holds a 5-3 SU & ATS advantage in these teams eight meetings this season; it’s split its four visits to the ATL winning both games by an average of 25 PPG. The Bulls have covered 11 of their L/16 road games, but have only covered two of their L/8 when playing off a SU win. The Hawks are 4-1 ATS their L/5 off a SU defeat, but stand just 2-10-1 ATS their L/13 conference semifinal tussles. The over has cashed nine of the L/11 times these squads went at it in ‘Hotlanta’.
