Basketball Gambling - Washington vs Atlanta

Basketball gambling resumes Friday with an eastern conference matchup of teams with high hopes this year with the NBA gambling odds as Atlanta hosts Washington.

Basketball gambling fans are now true believers on the Atlanta Hawks and their abilities with the NBA gambling odds as they are coming off back-to-back playoff seasons. The basketball gambling expectations are also high on the Washington Wizards even though they were one of the worst teams on the board last year.

But that was due to key injuries to starters Gilbert Arenas and Brendan Haywood.  Both are back and healthy for this basketball gambling season and the Wizards have what looks to be one of their deepest rosters in years.  Arenas and Haywood join Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison for a powerful offensive lineup with the NBA gambling odds.

Washington has a revamped team for this basketball gambling season as they acquired Mike Miller and Randy Foye from Minnesota and cut loose Etan Thomas, Darius Songaila, and Oleksiy Pecherov, who had become basketball gambling liabilities.  Basketball gambling optimism is high with the Washington brass.

“We feel that the strength of our team is going to come from more than just our big three”, said president Ernie Grunfeld.  “Those guys have done great things for us. But we feel that we’ve added to our roster in a lot of places. We can go nine deep”.

The Atlanta Hawks have a team that is confident and unified as it enters the basketball gambling season.  The Hawks return all five starters from last year’s team that made the eastern conference semi finals with the NBA gambling odds.  Head coach Mike Woodson is pleased with the basketball gambling progress of his team.

“My first couple of years we were still trying to figure out who would be part of our core”, said Woodson.  “Luckily, we’ve settled in with a group that’s allowed us to accomplish some things and get us to this point”.

Jamal Crawford and Joe Smith were brought in during the off season to add basketball gambling depth and make Atlanta a more viable playoff team.  Crawford knows the basketball gambling reason for his arrival in A-Town.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt about it”, said Crawford.  “They didn’t bring us here for the regular season. They brought us in here so we could take that next step in the playoffs”.
