NFL betting players usually hog all the fun with their tripleheader, but now sports betting players can get in on the hardwood action with an NBA betting doubleheader. Orlando and Atlanta hook up in a battle of the Southeast’s best teams, while Chicago continues their Western swing in Utah.
Orlando Magic vs Atlanta Hawks betting – Thursday, 8:00 PM ET
The Hawks should be the sports betting favorites at home, where they are 7-0 this year. This game may find both teams without their No.1 point guards. Orlando will definitely go to backup Jason Williams as Jameer Nelson continues to rehab a knee injury, while Atlanta’s Mike Bibby sprained his ankle in New Orleans on Saturday night. The Hawks need to be smart and take advantage of what should a tired Orlando team as the Magic host Miami on Wednesday night, then have to travel to Atlanta. Watch out for the matchup between Orlando’s Vince Carter and Atlanta’s Josh Smith. Orlando has won three straight in Atlanta, but that streak will end on Thursday against the hot-shooting Hawks.
Sports betting pick: Atlanta
Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz betting – Thursday, 10:30 PM ET
The Bulls will be sports betting underdogs in this contest, and it’ll be a bold player who puts them in their sports picks. Chicago has lost three straight on the West Coast since winning at Sacramento, falling by an average of 19.3 points. The Jazz have dropped three games at home this month, which is strange for a team that prides themselves on being good at home. The matchup to watch comes at the point, where Chicago’s Derrick Rose will go up against Utah’s Deron Williams. Both players battled injuries early in the season, and they look like they’re getting back to their best. The Bulls have lost seven of their last 10 trips to Utah, even though they did win here last year. They won’t make it two in a row, though, as they’re just trying to minimize the damage on the West Coast.
