NBA Betting Online – Spurs at Hawks

May 30, 2011 NBA Basketball

The San Antonio Spurs are favored in NBA betting online as they visit the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.

The Spurs ended their six-game losing streak on Sunday as they routed Phoenix while Atlanta lost at Houston.  The Spurs will likely get the bulk of the NBA betting action in this game at Sbg global.

Spurs Back in Control
The Spurs had lost six straight games to let the Lakers back in the race for the top seed in the Western Conference but on Sunday the Spurs routed Phoenix while the Lakers lost at home to Denver.  San Antonio’s lead is now back up to 2.5 games.  The Spurs do face the Lakers but this game on Tuesday in Atlanta is the only other one that looks tough.  The Spurs have home games against the Kings and Jazz and a road game at Phoenix.  Even if the Spurs lose against the Lakers they would just need to win the other four games to clinch the top spot.  That makes Tuesday night’s game in Atlanta a big one.

Hawks Set in Fifth
The Hawks are almost assuredly going to finish fifth in the Eastern Conference. It would take Philadelphia winning all of their games and Atlanta losing all of their remaining games for the Hawks to fall to 6th.  Philadelphia has some tough games this week too as they are at Boston and home against the Knicks so the Hawks may not have to do anything to clinch the 5th spot. That is a good thing because the Hawks are not a great basketball team. They are definitely not very good at home vs. the NBA betting line.  Atlanta had won four straight before falling at Houston on Sunday.
