NBA FREE PICK: Take Atlanta. According to latest NBA trends, Hawks are 16-7 ATS in the last 23 meetings, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. NBA Northwest and 35-16-1 ATS in their last 52 games playing on 0 days rest. Denver is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Southeast.

Atlanta (33-25 SU, 27-29-2 ATS, 29-28-1 O/U) is coming off a 99-98 road loss to the Lakers on Sunday getting 5.5. The Denver Nuggets (38-22 SU, 35-24-1 ATS, 37-23 O/U) have won four straight including a 105-103 home win over Oklahoma City on Friday night getting 3.5. Atlanta erased a 16-point second-half deficit to nearly clip the Lakers. Al Horford scored 24 points, including a dunk that gave the Hawks a short-lived lead in the final minute. Josh Smith added in 19 points but also had six turnovers. Horford is playing as well as any big man in the league. This is why Atlanta has a chance to cover and possibly steal this game outright. After scoring under 20 points in the first four games of February, he has topped the 20-point mark in nine consecutive games, shooting 65.6 percent in the process. Atlanta is in a virtual three-way tie for fourth place in the East with Chicago and Brooklyn, just two games up on seventh-place Boston. In the first meeting with the Nuggets, Horford had 25 points, 12 rebounds and five steals as the Nuggets just don't have an answer for him inside.
