Atlanta Hawks Fantasy Spin

John Collins scored 13 points (4-of-10 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday. Collins struggled offensively for the second straight game, but did chip in some defensive stats to make up for it. He's swiped at least one steal in three straight games, which matches his season-high. Collins has three games with at least two blocks so far in March, which is more than he had in the entire season entering this month. That's a big reason why he's inside the top-45 over the last two weeks of play.

New Orleans Pelicans Fantasy Spin

Anthony Davis (lower back spasms) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Hawks. Barring a setback, it looks like AD will be good to go for Tuesday's game and we should get official confirmation following shootaround. When Davis is active, Jahlil Okafor and Cheick Diallo lose most of their appeal in fantasy hoops.

NBA Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Hawks have covered the spread in 12 of their last 16 games overall and are 6-1 against the number in their last seven road games.

New Orleans

The Pelicans have failed to cover in eight of their previous nine games and are winless at 0-6 at the betting window in their last six home games.

Prediction

Neither team is headed to the playoffs but Atlanta has won four of its past seven games and is coming off a 129-127 win over postseason-bound Philadelphia. The Pelicans, meanwhile, have been eliminated from playoff contention and have dropped eight of their past nine games following a 113-90 home loss to the Rockets. Some metrics show that New Orleans should be favored by more points but I’m going to buck the computer projections and back Trae Young.

Tuesday NBA Prediction: Atlanta Hawks +1
