NBA Tuesday: Greg Frank picks Spurs vs Hawks — Trae Young is back and looking to score

Spurs (-5.5) @ Hawks (221)

Pick: Over 221

It’s another light night in the NBA with just six games on tap on Tuesday as college basketball takes center stage with Division I men’s programs all across the country playing season openers today. However, the highest total of the night is in Atlanta when the Spurs pay the Hawks a visit. Over money has come in from the opening total at 218.5 on this number and we’d follow it. Trae Young returns to the lineup for the Hawks, and while Atlanta is 0-5 on overs so far this season, we’d expect them to score more with their star guard suiting up. That’s also the kind of stat we want to bet against anyway because regression is inevitable. The Spurs have had no problem scoring against the mediocre and bad opponents on their schedule so far having scored 120, 124 and 127 against New York, Washington and Golden State respectively. Atlanta is probably more mediocre than bad, but offense shouldn’t be an issue for the Spurs the way it was on Sunday against the Lakers. This should be a fun back-and-forth game and the winner probably scores around 120 which should mean over 221 cashes without much sweat.
