Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks 1/18/2020 Betting Odds
Detroit Pistons Betting
The Pistons are being led by Derrick Rose right now as he has been the most potent scorer from the backcourt with the absence of Luke Kennard and Reggie Jackson. Andre Drummond has been in trade talks recently but expects him to provide his high rebounding numbers against the weak frontline of the Hawks. Sekou Duombuoya has been labeled as “Dr. Doom” and has been the silver lining for the team for the past games. Against the Hawks, they will rely heavily on their frontcourt to provide them with scoring but there is Tony Snell that could light up the scoring sheet at any time.

Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks look like they are showing signs of life as they won over two Western Conference teams in their past two games. They have been carried by Trae Young but it has been a one-man show lately for him. He has been seen in college games and maybe look forward to the upcoming NBA draft for help but for now, he is stuck with his teammates. They got help for Young with Jeff Teague and Treveon Graham coming in via trade. Jabari Parker has been hurt and John Collins has been his best teammate but he missed most of the season with a suspension. Against the Pistons, they have a good chance of getting a win but it will take a lot for them. Is it worth it? Maybe just for bragging rights.
Players to Watch: T. Young PG 37 GP 37 GS 35.2 MIN 29.1 PTS 0.6 OR 3.9 DR 4.5 REB 8.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.1 BLK 4.8 TO 1.6 PF 1.8 AST/TO 23.46 PER
