NBA Betting: Atlanta Hawks vs. L.A. Lakers

NBA betting includes one of the most attractive matchups this season from Staples Center, LA, as basketball betting offers a choice of playoff teams.

NBA betting action between the Atlanta Hawks and Los Angeles Lakers is an inter-conference game between two of the best teams in basketball bettingNBA 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. is your home for pro basketball action including the Hawks and Lakers so be sure and sign up today!
