Toronto Raptors at Atlanta Hawks, 7:30 pm Eastern
The Pick: Atlanta -126, bet $18.90 to win $15
This is an underrated matchup between two teams, both healthy, fighting for playoff position in the Eastern Conference. Right now, the Hawks would be the last team in the play-in game, but they trail the Raptors by only a game. Atlanta is on quite the roll, winning seven games in a row, six of them at home. The Raptors have won six of their last seven games at Atlanta, which to me is a fact in the Hawks’ favor. I'm betting Atlanta wants to stop that trend. Trae Young, Atlanta’s star, is fourth in the NBA in scoring, and the Hawks are seventh in scoring offense at 111.7 points per game. They seem to be remembering the energy that propelled them that deep run in last year’s playoffs. I think -126 is value here. I’ll take the home team to win tonight.
