The following is an actual PREMIUM service wager:

"2 UNIT" NBA INTANGIBLE (Pacers -1 at home versus Hawks in a 7:05 eastern tipoff): The two teams involved in this early evening contest are going in the exact opposite direction. Atlanta just wrapped up a sizzling 7-1 homestand where the only setback was against Eastern Conference leading Boston, and that by only a THREE point margin. Atlanta just picked up win #20 which marks the first time since way back in 1987 that this franchise has reached the 20-win plateau before New Year's Day.

Meanwhile, Indiana is limping along having lost 10 of the most recent 13 outings and they continue to play without injured leader Mike Dunleavy Junior. I want all of you to be aware that Atlanta actually opened as a 1-point favorite this evening, but the line has radically swung in Indiana's favor. Thus, one has to wonder why the Pacers are laying points against one of the hottest teams in the Eastern Conference. One of the reasons is because Indiana has WON-AND-COVERED FIVE IN A ROW AT HOME against Atlanta in this series, including a resounding 113-96 romp just last month.

For those of you who are into "revenge" wagers, my database research indicates that the Hawks have gone a horrible 10-22 ATS/ROAD long term when revening a same-season loss against an opponent. I am fully aware that the Hawks are currently riding a 13-4 spread tear. But note that for some reason Atlanta has gone a disastrous 3-14 ATS the past two years when playing on a TUESDAY. Check all calendars!
