Pistons at Hawks picks and predictions

Prediction

Hawks 117, Pistons 113

Moneyline

PASS.

Atlanta (-950) should be able to bounce back and get the win after an embarrassing loss at San Antonio, but the Hawks are being slightly overvalued on the moneyline. Bet the spread and/or total instead.

Against the spread

BET PISTONS +12.5 (-105).

The last time Detroit failed to cover in 4 straight games was Jan. 13-23. The Pistons have only won 1 of their last 15 games straight up, but are being undervalued ATS vs. a Hawks team that is trending downward.

Atlanta has lost 3 of its last 4 games and is just 12-16 ATS this season as a home favorite. The Hawks have not excelled against inferior competition lately and are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. teams with a winning percentage below .400.

Over/Under

BET UNDER 238.5 (-112).

The Under is 4-0 in Detroit’s last 4 games and 4-1 in its last 5 after allowing 100 or more points in its previous contest. Look for Detroit to tighten up defensively Tuesday in an attempt to avoid getting swept by Atlanta this season.
