NBA Basketball Betting Odds Witness Knicks Trying to Keep Pace with Hawks

The NBA basketball betting lines and playoff races are heating up, and two Eastern Conference contenders in the Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks will meet this Friday in Georgia with each team looking to gain ground in the standings.

This is the second of three meetings between the Knicks and Hawks. Late in February – right in the middle of Lin-Sanity – New York took a 99-82 victory at home. Lin had a team-high 17 points in the game, as did Steve Novak. Amar’e Stoudemire contributed 10 boards. For the Hawks, Jeff Teaque had 18 points while Willie Green contributed 16 in the loss.

Both these teams have played incredibly well as of late, as each tries to hold onto the lower seeds in the East. Atlanta and Indiana are battling for the fifth and sixth seeds, which essentially is coming down to who wants to play Orlando and who wants Philadelphia in the first round of the playoffs.

New York is struggling to stay ahead of surging Milwaukee for eighth. There is a lot on the line for both teams in this game.

Despite their spots in the standings, the Hawks have 50/1 betting odds on the NBA futures list compared to the Knicks’ 25/1 odds. Think that is enough for them to take out Lin and Melo? Bet on the NBA now.
