Chicago Bulls Odds
They may not be the most successful franchise in NBA history but, largely thanks to one man, they are one of the most famous.
When the Bulls received the third pick in the 1984 NBA Draft, they selected a young shooting guard called Michael Jordan and the rest was history.
His arrival signalled the Bulls as a genuine force and the Chicago Bulls odds came crashing down as a result…
The nineties were the Chicago Bulls’ golden age
The Bulls were immense during the 1990/91 season and recorded a franchise record 61 wins on their way to the NBA Championship, they won the title again the following season and then created history by becoming the first team since the Boston Celtics in the sixties to win three consecutive titles.
However, the talismanic Jordan quit basketball at the end of that season to pursue a short-lived career in baseball. He returned after a two year exile, announcing his decision with a press release that simply said: ‘I’m back’.
His first season back wasn’t the success it was scripted to be, but his second year saw him guide the Bulls to another NBA Championship title and the first of another historic three-peat.
The Bulls have failed to live up to those high standards since then though but, because of the enduring legacy of that incredible team, Chicago Bulls odds are always going to be amongst the most attractive to punters.
The future looks bright for Chicago Bulls odds
While Jordan was the Bulls’ talisman throughout the nineties, the 2010s look like belonging to Derrick Rose.
The young point guard has been brilliant for the Bulls since joining them as a first draft pick in 2008 and in 2011 cemented his place amongst the elite by claiming the NBA Most Valuable Player award.
With Rose and a host of other talented players on their books, the Chicago Bulls odds are starting to look a lot more tempting than they have for a very long time.
