Suns vs Hawks Prediction | NBA Picks
Moreover, upon further review of these teams’ betting statistics, Phoenix is 39-7 as a favorite, 2-2 as an underdog and 15-8 ATS away, while Atlanta is 17-13 as a favorite, 7-13 as an underdog and 13-13 ATS at home. Not much can be said about the Suns’ dominance. From one win streak to another, they have remained consistently impressive throughout the course of this regular season. Despite having a few players on their injury report, it does not matter; they win anyways.
Phoenix is entering this interconference matchup as a 5.5-point favorite. The Hawks have the healthier roster, but they have lost 12 games at home this season. Winning streaks come to an end eventually. However, the Suns’ streak will probably end against the Bulls or 76ers, not the Hawks. Taking everything into account, think about picking the Suns to win, the Hawks will cover the spread and the total will go under 225. To learn more about NBA betting, read our handicap betting guide.
