Suns vs. Hawks Prediction
Are the Suns a good underdog play tonight in Atlanta where they will take on the struggling Hawks at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Hawks are now 8-point home favorites versus the Suns, who opened as 7-point underdogs. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 214 and has been bet up 215.
Phoenix is just 1-9 over its last 10 games and is 2-8 against the spread during that same stretch. The Suns are also 35-38 against the number on the season, which includes a losing ATS mark of 17-20 on the road this year.
Following its 107-92 loss to the Nets on Sunday, the Hawks have now dropped seven in a row to fall to 3-7 over their last 10 games. They're 4-6 against the spread during that stretch and are now 33-40 ATS on the season. They're also just 14-23 against the number at home.
OUR PREDICTION: With the way the Hawks played on Sunday against the Nets, I'm not laying 8 points on Atlanta right now, even against a horrible Phoenix squad. The Hawks are 8-22 against the number in their last 30 home games, are 5-13 against the spread in their last 18 games overall, and are 1-6 at the betting window in their last seven games against Western Conference foes. The Suns, meanwhile, have cashed in six of their last eight games in Atlanta and in 12 of their last 16 meetings with the Hawks overall.
