NBA basketball betting respect is at an all time low for the Washington Wizards as they have seen a steady fall to their current status of one of the least appealing NBA sports betting commodities.

The Washington Wizards will host the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night with a telecast on NBA TV set to begin at 7 PM ET.  Sports Gambling will post side and over under odds on this Eastern Conference matchup so be sure and have your account open and ready today for action.

Atlanta was a better than expected 30-18 straight up and 22-26 against the spread.  The Hawks were 14-12 with the NBA lines in road games with an even 13-13 split on totals.  Defense was the strength of Atlanta as they ranked 9th in the NBA for points allowed and 20th for scoring.

Washington had a record of 13-33 straight up and 17-29 with the NBA betting odds.  The Wizards were in bad form as of late with just 3 payouts in 10 games from January 13 through January 29.

Atlanta has not been a great value as a favorite lately with just 1 payout in their last 6 games laying points.  Washington has been an even weaker dog long term however with just 5 payouts in their last 20 games when getting points. The Wizards have gone over the total in their last 4 games as a dog.

Atlanta has gotten the money in 13 of their last 19 games against Washington with payouts in 7 of their last 9 matchups with the Wizards.  The Hawks and Wizards have gone over the total in 3 of their last 4 matchups.

This is the third meeting of the season between these two teams.  On October 30 the Hawks scored a 99-95 home payout over Washington and on November 25 Atlanta paid out again at home in a 116-96 win.  Atlanta has been highly profitable at Washington with 7 payouts in their last 8 visits with just 1 of the last 5 meetings between the teams at Verizon Center going under the NBA basketball betting total.
