Atlanta Hawks 2021-22 Season
After a surprising trip to the Eastern Conference Finals in the 2020-21 season, the expectations for the Atlanta Hawks were pretty high coming into 2021-22. The Hawks have been largely disappointing, though, halfway through the regular season. Atlanta continues to hover around the playoff play-in tournament seeds, but they could very easily find themselves on the outside looking in unless they start to win more consistently in the second half of the season.
Trae Young and company will look to recover some of last season's form for the rest of the year to get themselves into a comfortable playoff position. The Hawks have struggled on the road this year, so finding wins away from Atlanta could be a key indicator that the team is able to make a playoff push down the homestrech.
Betting on the Atlanta Hawks
Atlanta has been a difficult team to predict in 2021-22 with their up-and-down play, but there are several different types of wagers you can make on the Hawks if you're in a legal betting state.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
By betting the Hawks moneyline, you’re betting the Hawks to win the game. The margin of victory doesn’t matter, just the 'W.' Moneyline odds are straightforward once you understand them. Let's use the following Hawks vs. Magic game as an example.
- Orlando Magic +225 moneyline
- Atlanta Hawks -275 moneyline
The numbers above are how much money a bettor would need to wager to win $100 on the favorite (-), or how much money they would win by betting $100 on the underdog (+). Since the Hawks are -275 favorites, it would take a $275 bet to win $100, while a $100 bet on the underdog Magic would win $225.
The Hawks were a bit of a surprise package last season, which helps explain their 39-32-1 record against-the-spread (ATS) in 2021-22. The point spread is a staple wager on the NBA betting board. A spread is a bet on a set margin of victory for the game. Here's a spread bet using the same Hawks vs. Magic matchup.
- Orlando Magic +6.5 (-118)
- Atlanta Hawks -6.5 (-100)
The Hawks are the favorites in this game, indicated by the the minus sign (-), and a bet on them to cover the spread would win only if Atlanta won by seven points or more. A bet on the underdogs, as denoted by the plus sign (+), would cash if the Magic won outright or lost by 6 or less points. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on the Magic, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $1180 risked. Someone betting on Atlanta would earn a profit of $100 for every $100 risked.
Over/unders, or “totals,” are bets on the total number of points the two teams will combine to score. Oddsmakers will set a number based on the expected number of points, and bettors are able to wager “over” or “under” that total. Here are the over/under totals for our example game.
- Over 209.5 (-100)
- Under 209.5 (-109)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 209.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $100 to earn $100. Betting under 209.5 points would mean a bettors would earn $100 for every $109 risked.
Hawks Prop Bets
Bettors aren’t limited to whether the Hawks win or lose. Prop bets are the sports betting version of fantasy football, taking only an individual player’s stats into account. For example, you could bet on Trae Young to go over or under a certain number of points or assists on the night, or bet him to score the first basket of the game.
Hawks Future Odds
Expectations will be high in Atlanta following a deep playoff run, which means bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Hawks futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Hawks to make the playoffs, win the Southeast Division, win the Eastern Conference, win the NBA Finals, or even individual awards like Trae Young winning league MVP.
