The Hawks would appear to be a solid play tonight on the road versus the Pelicans but the trends work against Atlanta.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Hawks are 3-point road favorites versus the Pelicans for tonight's 8:00PM ET tip-off. As for the total, it opened at 204 and that's where the number currently sits.
New Orleans has yet to win a game on the new season and is 0-4 against the spread, but a cover could be in order tonight when the Pelicans host the Hawks. That's because Atlanta is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five games versus the Pelicans and 1-6 at the betting window in its last seven games following an ATS win.
We'd still recommend laying the three points on the Hawks given the Pelicans' penchant for not playing defense but New Orleans is due and the trends work against Atlanta in this matchup so be cautious.
