Basketball Betting – Atlanta at Orlando

Basketball betting on Friday includes the back end of a home and home as Orlando hosts Atlanta.

Bet on basketball scheduling information reflects that the teams played in Atlanta on Wednesday. Earlier this season in Orlando the Hawks routed the Magic 99-85 as eight point basketball betting underdogs.

Basketball betting numbers show that the Hawks were 6-4 both straight up and against the basketball odds before Wednesday’s meeting.  At Orlando, the teams have actually split their last six meetings both straight up and against the basketball odds.

Atlanta has been a nice basketball betting pointspread success this season.  They still are not getting much respect from gamblers that bet on basketball even though they continue to impress.  Joe Johnson is capable of impacting the basketball betting odds on a nightly basis and he is one of the most underrated players in the league.  The Hawks are in the Top 10 in defense and that is one reason they have had some success versus the basketball betting line this season.  In addition to Johnson, the Hawks get scoring from Josh Smith, Mike Bibby and Al Horford.  In the first meeting between the teams it was Johnson who scored 25 points to lead the Hawks.

Orlando has also been good this year against the basketball betting odds. The Magic are in the Top 10 on both offense and defense as basketball betting stats indicate.  Dwight Howard is a player that can dominate inside and make a serious difference versus the basketball betting odds. Bet on basketball stats show that he is supported on the offensive end by Rashard Lewis and Hego Turkoglu.  Howard scored 22 points and pulled down 15 rebounds in the first meeting against the Hawks this season but he didn’t get a lot of help.

7 of the last 10 games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total.  At Orlando, four of the last six games have gone under the total.
