In the 2020-21 season, the Atlanta Hawks made a significant turnaround. They reached the playoffs for first time since 2017, and covered the spread at the sixth best rate in the NBA. The young core of the Hawks’ team is led by Trae Young, a point guard. They will be looking to continue their playoff run in future seasons.
This page allows you to search for the best line for each Hawks game. Let’s now dive into the key terms to help you better understand these markets.
Atlanta Hawks Point Spreads
The Hawks were somewhat of a surprise package in last season’s season. This explains their 39-32-1 record against the spread (ATS) last year. Spread is a common wager on the NBA betting boards. It’s a bet that the spread will determine the outcome of the game.
Let’s take an example from a Hawks home match:
Orlando Magic (+6.5).
Atlanta Hawks (-6.5).
The Hawks are the favorite in this game. The minus sign (-), tells you so. A bet on Atlanta covering the spread would only win if Atlanta wins by seven or more points. If the Hawks win by 6 points or less or lose out completely, a bet on the underdogs (denoted by (+)) would pay.
Atlanta Hawks Moneylines
You’re betting on the Hawks moneyline to bet the Hawks win the game. It doesn’t matter how much the Hawks win, only how many points they get. Once you get to know them, moneyline odds are simple. But let’s go back to our previous example.
We would anticipate moneyline odds of:
Orlando Magic +225
Atlanta Hawks -275
These numbers show how much money a bettors would need to wager in order to win $100 on their favorite (-),, or $100 on the underdog (+).. To win $100 on the Hawks, you would need to place a $275 wager. A $100 bet on Magic would win you $225.
Atlanta Hawks Over/Under
Bettors can place over/under or “totals” bets on how many points each team will score. The number will be determined by the oddsmakers. Bettors can place wagers on either “over” or “under” this total. Over bettors will win if the Magic and Hawks score 241 points combined and the total is set at 240.5. The under would win if the total was 241.5
Props for Atlanta Hawks
The Hawks’ win or loss doesn’t matter to bettors. Prop bets, which are based on a player’s statistics only, are the sports betting version to fantasy football. You could, for example, bet on Trae Young scoring the first basket or exceeding a certain amount of assists or points.
Atlanta will expect high expectations following a playoff run. This means that bettors will need to look for the best line in order to obtain good odds on Hawks futures. Futures bets focus on the longer term, such as the Hawks winning the championship or Trae Young being named MVP.Last Updated on October 2, 2021
