There is one pick today.
Take Philadelphia 76ers +1 spread against Atlanta Hawks for 3% of the bankroll.
The Atlanta Hawks are a team that has been struggling and even though they managed to temporarily stop the bleeding last night with a 95-91 victory over the Phoenix Suns, they are still a team that had previously lost their last 7 games. The injury to Paul Millsap has really hurt this team and can be considered a big reason for their recent skid. Millsap is both their focal point offensively and is quietly one of the better defenders in the league, capable of switching on the perimeter while also defending the paint. The fact that he will not be in the lineup once again will be detrimental to the Hawks in this contest.
The injury bug has also hit this Philadelphia team hard this season, however they have a lot of young talent on this team and still seems to be competitive in games. They've shown signs of growth this season both as a team and as a franchise and has been climbing out of the basement of the East standings. There’s still a lot of work to get this team back to relevancy, but the pieces are certainly there to build around in the coming years, as long as they can stay healthy. Philadelphia has been trending upward recently winning 4 of their last 7 games including some recent wins coming against the Bulls, Celtics, and Mavericks. The travelled to Brooklyn last night and picked up a confidence building win on the road. Now being back on their home court, a place where they have won 3 straight and managed to cover in 15 of their last 17, we expect that momentum to carry over tonight.
The Hawks had their hands full last night against a Phoenix Suns team that is in full on 'tank mode' and narrowly managed to come away with a victory. On the second night of a back-to-back and after a night of travelling, the Hawks will be in a prime letdown spot against a Philadelphia team that is now playing with confidence. We believe the wrong team is favored in this contest as the 76ers go on to grab the outright victory.
