Timberwolves at Hawks picks and predictions
Hawks 124, Timberwolves 117
Even with the Hawks expected to win at home, taking them straight up at the current odds (-210) isn’t worth the risk.
HAWKS -5.5 (-110) is the pick with how Atlanta has performed under new coach Quin Snyder. G Trae Young has been playing better as of late, scoring 25-plus points and dishing out 7-plus assists in 4 straight games.
The Timberwolves are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings, while the Hawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record.
LEAN UNDER 245.5 (-112).
There’s no doubt these teams play fast and can score points with ease, but this is a massive total. The Timberwolves and the Hawks have failed to reach 245-plus points in 7 of the last 10 meetings.
