Basketball Betting: Atlanta Hawks vs. Dallas Mavericks

Basketball betting on Saturday includes an inter-conference matchup between the still surprising Atlanta Hawks and the resurgent Dallas Mavericks.

Basketball betting handicappers continue to be impressed with the Atlanta Hawks.  Atlanta has gained online basketball betting respect since last season’s unexpected playoff appearance in which they shocked the Boston Celtics by extending their head to head playoff series to the maximum seven games.  Atlanta has recently begun to the pay the price of their success with lesser value against the basketball betting lines.

Atlanta had a basketball betting mark of 10-6 straight up but just 8-8 against the spread.  In over/under basketball betting action Atlanta was 7-7-2 for an even split.  The Hawks had an away basketball betting record of a solid 6-4 against the spread with an even 4-4-2 split on the road over/under board.

After a nice start to the basketball betting season the Hawks went into a free fall from November 14 through November 26 in which they lost 7 consecutive games against the spread.  Starting on November 28, however, the Hawks stopped the basketball betting slump by covering their next two games.

One of the big reasons for Atlanta’s basketball betting success has been Joe Johnson, who was leading the team in scoring with an average of 22.7-points per game.  Johnson also led the team in assists with an average of 5-per game.

Another bright spot for the Hawks this basketball betting season has been Al Horford who was averaging 8.3-rebounds per game.  From November 12 through November 29 the Hawks went on a basketball betting stretch in which just 3 out of 10 games went under the total.

After an online basketball betting stretch in which they went 6-1 both straight up and against the basketball betting lines Dallas had an overall basketball betting record of 8-8 straight up and 8-8 against the spread.
