Hawks vs. Nets, 7:30 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Nets -4.5

The spread for tonight’s game between the Hawks and Nets is sitting at 4.5 points. Atlanta has a few noticeable names on the injury report, which could impact the potential result of the game. Young is listed as probable with a sore left knee, Bogdan Bogdanovic is listed as probable with a sore lower back, and John Collins is listed as questionable with a foot injury.

Despite those injuries, it would not be a surprise to see all three guys play tonight. Atlanta is 2-4 against the spread in their last six games, but 0-3 ATS this season after a win. As for the Nets, they are trying to end their early six-game home stand with a 4-2 record. In the two losses, Brooklyn scored under 100 points. However, this team is capable to put up a ton of points with Durant, Harden, and Joe Harris. During this home stand, the Nets are 2-3 ATS, but they are 3-3 ATS on the season when listed as the favorite.

Over/Under: Under 220

When it comes to the point total for tonight’s primetime contest, the over is at -115, while the under is at -105. In their last three road games, the Hawks are giving up 114.3 points per game. Atlanta’s record for the over is 3-4, with the under still hitting at 57.1%. Brooklyn has not been a great play for the over this season either. The Nets are a league-worst 0-7 when it comes to the over, with the under hitting at 100%. Let’s roll with the under for this one until proven otherwise.
