Atlanta Hawks vs Denver Nuggets 11/12/2019 – It’s no secret the Atlanta Hawks (3-6) are eager to end their losing streak that now extends to three games following a 113-124 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. The Nuggets (7-2), on the other hand, look for a convincing win after barely surviving their last two opponents. Denver opened in Las Vegas betting lines as double-digit favorites (-12), but the Hawks remain a very dangerous opponent as long as they have Trey Young in the lineup.

Atlanta Hawks Betting
After a terrific win vs. the San Antonio Spurs 108-100, the Hawks suffered three consecutive setbacks at the hands of the Bulls, Kings, and Blazers. Trae Young has been phenomenal in those games, but the suspension on forward John Collins has proven to be the biggest backbreaker for the Hawks. Collins was averaging 17.0 points and 8.8 rebounds per game before the NBA slapped him with a 25-game ban for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
Players to Watch: Trae Young (26.2 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 8.4 APG), Jabari Parker (17.6 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 1.3 APG), Kevin Huerter (9.1 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2.8 APG)
Denver Nuggets Betting
After losses to New Orleans and Dallas, the Denver Nuggets have racked up wins left and right with All-Star center Nikola Jokic leading the charge. The Serbian big man has also been breaking lots of hearts as of late, hitting game-winners against the Sixers 100-97 and the T-Wolves 100-98 in back-to-back fashion.
Players to Watch: Jamal Murray (18.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.2 APG), Nikola Jokic (16.7 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 6.0 APG), Will Barton (14.9 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 2.3 APG)

Atlanta Hawks vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks
Stats can really surprise sometimes. Denver may look like the dominant team, but they actually lost to the Hawks in seven out of their last 10 head-to-head meetings. In those games, they were just averaging 105 points per game on 43 percent FG shooting.
Moneyline: The Hawks will pull off another stunner over the weary Nuggets. Setting the game-winners by Jokic aside, Denver looked tired against the Wolves. Tuesday’s game will be the Nuggets’ third outing in a grueling four-day stretch.
ATS: The Hawks will improve to 5-5 ATS by covering the double-digit NBA spread.
TOTALs: This game will go over the NBA over/under totals of 226 points. One thing is for sure, and that is Denver will try to slow down the pace of the game. Failure could mean another big scoring night for Young and the Hawks.
Score Prediction: 123-111 Hawks
