NBA Playoffs betting action can be seen on TNT television on Wednesday as the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks play Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series.
Atlanta is favored in NBA Playoffs odds against the Heat on Wednesday.
NBA Playoffs betting odds may favor the Hawks but there is a case to be made for Miami. The Heat have the NBA’s leading scorer in Dwyane Wade and a rejuvenated Jermaine O’Neal. The Heat have already proven they can cover the NBA Playoffs odds in Atlanta as they won Game 2 108-93 as five point underdogs. Overall, the Heat have lost six of the last ten in Atlanta but Miami is 7-3 against the spread in those games.
The Heat have looked like the better team in this NBA Playoffs betting series against the Hawks. They have gotten scoring from multiple players, not just Wade. O’Neal is finally playing well, Udonis Haslem is a beast on the boards and even Mario Chalmers has chipped in at times. If the Heat can continue to give Wade help then they have a good chance of winning this NBA Playoffs betting series.
The Hawks were really overconfident when this NBA Playoffs betting series began and it got even worse after they won easily in Game 1. They were brought back to reality in Game 2 in NBA Playoffs betting and have never looked like the same team again. Joe Johnson has looked like just an average player and for the Hawks to win in NBA Playoffs betting he needs to be great. The supporting cast is good enough for Atlanta but in this NBA Playoffs betting series they have been erratic. Josh Smith had a great Game 1 but has done little since while Mike Bibby and Al Horford have been virtually invisible and the Hawks have had little bench scoring.
Looking at the NBA Playoffs betting total we see that seven of the last ten games in Atlanta between the two teams have gone under. The only game in the last seven that went over was that Game 2 win by the Heat when they covered the NBA Playoffs odds. Most of the time when these two teams get together in NBA Playoffs betting it is about defense.
