Trail Blazers vs. Hawks Best Bets

Blazers +7 (-110 DraftKings)

Portland isn’t playing their best basketball right now, but seven points seems a bit steep for an Atlanta team that’s lost three of their last five games and is just getting used to their new Head Coach. The Blazers (114.9) are averaging just two fewer points per game this season than the Hawks (116.9) and are allowing 2.5 fewer points per tilt than tonight’s opponent this season, (2.4 in the last 3 games).

The Hawks are the fifth-worst team in the NBA ATS this season (27-34-1), take Portland with the points.

Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)

Blazers vs Hawks Game Total Under 241 (-110 DraftKings)

These two teams score an average combined total of 231.8 on the season and are allowing an average total of 232.5 points per contest. The Under is 5-5 in the Hawks’ last 10 games and 3-2 in Portland’s last five times on the court.

The implied team total for Atlanta is 123 tonight with the Blazers sitting at 117. It could be a sweat, but I lean Under 241 for this matchup.
