Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Hawks are slowly putting in the pieces for them to become a relevant team again in the future. Trae Young, who is coming off a sensational rookie year campaign, will be coming into the new season with a new wing target and floor spacer in Cam Reddish. DeAndre Hunter also showed flashes of his potential in the postseason, while Kevin Huerter and John Collins are expected to take another step in their development.

Players to Watch: Trae Young (19.1 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and 8.1 APG*) John Collins (19.5 PPG, 9.8 RPG, and 2.0 APG*), and Kevin Huerter (9.7 PPG, 3.3 RPG, and 2.9 APG*)

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Pistons were off to a slambang start after pounding the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. Andre Drummond stepped up his game in the absence of Blake Griffin, who is nursing a hamstring injury. The big man chalked up 32 points, 23 rebounds, and 4 blocks, while Luke Kennard and Derrick Rose chipped in 30 and 18 respectively.

Players to Watch: Andre Drummond (32.0 PPG, 23.0 RPG, and 4.0 BPG), Luke Kennard (30.0 PPG, 3.0 RPG and 2.0 APG*), and Derrick Rose (18.0 PPG, 2.0 RPG, and 9.0 APG).

Atlanta Hawks vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks

The big win vs. the Pacers certainly boosted the morale of the Pistons leading up to Thursday’s ballgame. Detroit is 7-3 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings with Atlanta, averaging 111.6 points and limiting the Hawks to 102.5 points over that span.

Moneyline: Again, NBA betting sites give a slight edge to the Pistons against the Hawks because of their history and their big win in the opener. ESPN’s basketball power index adjusted the Pistons’ winning percentage at 56.8 percent, making the home team the more popular choice of the two.

ATS: As for points against the spread betting, the Hawks are a solid 6-4 ATS. It’s still unknown how much this young team has improved over the summer, but I have a gut feeling they can push the Pistons down to the wire. They can win the game or lose by a single digit.

TOTALs: Atlanta averaged 113 points per game last season while Detroit scored 119 points in their last game vs. the Pacers. The OU Total for this game is set at 222. Atlanta likes a high-scoring, fast-paced game the same way as the Pistons want. In short, expect this game to breach the 222-point mark. Predicted score: Pistons 118, Hawks 116.

Score Prediction: 118 – 116 Pistons
