Hawks 1H (-6.5) over Pistons
Coming off a SU ATS loss to a lottery team in their last game facing the Cavs I expect Atlanta to play with more focus and motivation on their home court where they had the 2nd best record ATS last year as a home favorite. The Hawks were also one of the better teams last year in 1st half margin and they’re even better this year beating teams by 5 points on average in the 1st half (+7 at home). Detroit is still without the 1st pick in the draft Cade Cunningham and their offense continues to struggle a lot like last year. They ranked 4th worst in PPG and 5th worst in eFG% last year and so far they’re dead last in both categories and I don’t see that changing with a motivated Hawks team coming off an embarrassing loss.
