Atlanta Hawks Betting

After a sensational 42-point, 11-assist performance vs. the Denver Nuggets, Trae Young cooled a bit in the next game as he was held down to 21 points on 7-for-18 shooting in a 128-112 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The second-year guard still dished out 13 assists, but Atlanta allowed Phoenix to score 15 of 39 three-point attempts in the night.

Players to Watch: Trae Young (27.3 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 9.1 APG), Jabari Parker (18.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 1.5 APG), De’Andre Hunter (9.6 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Los Angeles Clippers Betting

At last, the world will finally see the superstar combo that is tapped to dominate L.A and the entire NBA this season. Two days after Paul George’s grand debut in the Bayou where he scored 33 points in limited minutes, the Los Angeles Clippers will be fielding George and Kawhi Leonard for the first time this season.

Players to Watch: Paul George (33.0 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 4.0 APG), Kawhi Leonard (26.8 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 6.0 APG), Lou Williams (22.8 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 5.8 APG)

Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Picks

There’s a reason why the NBA winning margin spreads for the Clippers opened at double digits. While the home team will be missing Landry Shamet’s two-way presence and potentially Patrick Beverley’s hounding defense, George and Leonard are two of the best two-way players in basketball and should control the game from the get-go.

Moneyline: The Clippers are 6-1 SU at home this season without Paul George.

ATS: Believe or not, the Hawks have a good chance of snatching an ATS win on Saturday. The Clippers are remarkably great on paper, but chemistry issue is going to test them in this game. The home team will still win it, but I see the Hawks losing by a single digit.

TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the total, which opened at high 230 points. The Clippers exploded for 127 points in a loss to the Pelicans on Thursday, but that game didn’t show the truth behind the LA Clippers, because the real Clippers is a merciless defensive squad who stop teams on their tracks. Expect the totals for this game to play around 210 to 220 points with the home team upping their defense.

Score Prediction: 110-103 Clippers
