NBA betting action between the Atlanta Hawks and Los Angeles Lakers is an inter-conference game between two of the best teams in basketball betting. NBA betting handicappers now totally believe in the Atlanta Hawks and no longer consider them a flash in the pan or a fluke team.
Last year when Atlanta made the basketball betting playoffs it was basically as a “back in” because of the failures of other teams. The Hawks, you may recall, had a losing record and were a lightly regarded NBA betting commodity.
That basketball betting perception has certainly changed, however, as after they extended the eventual NBA champion Boston Celtics to a full seven games in their playoff series last year, the Hawks picked right up where they left off and have improved themselves to be a winning team that still carries solid NBA betting value.
Atlanta had an overall NBA betting record of 31-21 straight up and 28-24 against the NBA betting odds. The Hawks had a solid NBA betting stretch from February 4 through February 11 in which they got the cash in four out of five games. Atlanta was 16-11 against the spread on the road and 17-7 against the spread as a dog.
As usual, the Los Angeles Lakers had a great straight up mark while barely staying in the black. LA had an overall NBA betting record of a stellar 42-10 straight up but was just 27-25 against the NBA betting odds.
In home NBA betting action the Lakers were just 13-15 against the spread and they beat the NBA betting board in just 21 of 46 games as a chalk.
The Lakers were a strong NBA betting over team as they were 32-20 over the total including 18-10 over the number at Staples Center. LA ranked first overall in the NBA for offense but was just 20th overall on defense.
