NBA betting on Saturday includes a rare situation that doesn’t occur that often as teams are playing a home and home series.
Last night the New Jersey Nets and Atlanta Hawks met in a basketball betting matchup in New Jersey and now tonight they play the return game in Atlanta.
NBA betting number show that the Nets had won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams before this home and home series began. They were 5-5 against the basketball betting pointspread in those games. At Atlanta, the Nets have won three of the last five contests according to NBA betting statistics. New Jersey is only 2-3 though against the basketball betting number in those games. The home team in this series has been favored in recent games according to NBA odds stats, mainly because Atlanta is no longer a doormat in the NBA. The Hawks are considered an up and coming team that can win at any time in NBA betting. It used to be that the Hawks were only considered by NBA betting experts against the spread but no longer. Atlanta has a young and talented team that can play with most teams in the NBA, especially those in the Eastern Conference.
Gamblers looking at the NBA betting total may want to know that the last three meetings between the two teams went over. Both games in Atlanta last season went over the NBA betting number. The Hawks won 104-02 and the Nets won 113-107 according to basketball betting numbers. Three of the last five in Atlanta have gone over the NBA betting pointspread.
Many gamblers are giving more of a look this season to Atlanta than to New Jersey. That is a major shift but considering the Nets lost Richard Jefferson in the off-season it is not surprising. The Hawks still have Joe Johnson and the addition of Mike Bibby really seems to have helped. New Jersey still has Vince Carter but most NBA betting gamblers don’t trust him to produce on a regular basis.
