It is the third game of a three-game road trip for the Hawks while the NBA betting schedule shows that it is the first of a back-to-back for the Bobcats as they are at New York tomorrow.
Basketball betting trends tell us that the Hawks and Bobcats have split their last ten meetings overall. The Bobcats though are 7-3 against the basketball odds in those games. Charlotte has won four of the last five home games against the Hawks as basketball betting results indicate. They are also 4-1 against the basketball odds in those contests. Basketball betting results show that the two teams have met three times already this season and the Hawks have won all three games. Atlanta won at Charlotte 102-97 as NBA betting results show and they won 83-79 and 88-83 in Atlanta.
The Hawks continue to find ways to win games, despite a subpar offense. Joe Johnson usually carries the Hawks as he leads them in scoring as basketball betting stats show. Atlanta’s defense is just outside the Top 10 as NBA betting stats show. The Hawks do have some players that can help Johnson which is why they will make the playoffs and why they took Boston to seven games last year in the playoffs.
Charlotte has been a very good team at home this season versus the basketball betting odds. The Bobcats play excellent defense and they are normally getting points on the basketball betting line. That combination has resulted in quite a few covers at home this season versus the basketball betting odds.
Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. At Charlotte though, three of the last five have gone over the NBA betting total. The Hornets have been an under team at home this season versus the basketball betting total.
