Lakers vs Magic – Hawks vs Heat NBA Parlay Betting Advice

Jumping into some hoop action, we head to the National Basketball Association to look at the eight games on the Tuesday night NBA schedule. There’s some intrigue mixed into that batch of games including the Miami Heat shooting for their 19th straight win as they host the Atlanta Hawks and the Los Angeles Lakers trying to climb into a playoff spot with a win over lowly Orlando Magic. The Los Angeles vs Orlando contest gets the action started at 7:00 PM ET on March 12, 2013, from the Amway Center in Orlando, FL. Heat plus Lakers looks lucrative.

Lakers vs Magic - Hawks vs Heat NBA Parlay Betting Advice

Lakers vs Magic: Unspectacular Superman returns

When Los Angeles tips off with Orlando tonight, they do so knowing that a victory moves them a half game ahead of the Utah Jazz and into the eighth and final playoff position in the Western Conference. Although the break up was more like soap opera than a professional move, it’s worth noting that Dwight Howard returns to Orlando for the first time since he joined the Lakers. Many felt that Howard would be reborn in LaLa Land but that hasn’t materialized. The man formerly know as Superman should be highly motivated to produce tonight.

Heat vs Hawks: Possible NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff preview

Living up to their name, not to mention their preseason chalk status, the Heat are looking for their 19th straight win as they host Atlanta at 7:30 PM ET from AmericanAirlines Arena in South Beach. We like the fact that the 76ers (24-39) are next up for Miami as they won’t be looking past the Hawks tonight. Atlanta currently holds a 1.5 game lead over Milwaukee in the battle for 7th and 8th in the East and they are just two games out of fourth overall. The Hawks are in tough here though as they have lost six straight and 12 of 14 games versus the Miami.

NBA Tuesday Night Betting Lines & Advantage Sports Parlay Betting Prediction

William Hill, proud bookmakers for over seven decades, is the lines provider for our parlay betting free pick tonight. Since both of these clubs are posted as thick chalk, and we’re not sure if either team will cover the line, we’ll  back them both to build some value with the inflated money lines. The Lakers are -400 straight up while the Heat come in with a -600 ML price. That’s good enough to pay us almost half of our original investment when the ticket cashes.
