Atlanta vs Detroit NBA Odds Hawks And Pistons Prediction
Atlanta Hawks: Middling after a strong season start
Hot out of the starting gate, Atlanta opened their season on a 7-1 roll, the Hawks have cooled some as they’ve posted an 11-11 record since November 7. Sitting at 18-12 overall, Atlanta has a slim lead over Miami, Orlando and Charlotte as those four teams are separated by just 1.5 games in the Southeast Division – which is currently the most competitive division in the NBA. In the race for top spot in Eastern Conference, the Hawks and Toronto Raptors are tied for second as they trail Cleveland by 2.5 games. Atlanta is averaging 101.2 PPG (17th) on offense while giving up 99.9 PPG (15th) on defense.
Detroit Pistons: Performing above preseason NBA Championship odds
Posted 19th, with a +15000 preseason NBA Championship money line price, Detroit has been one of the surprise squads through the first third of the season. Sporting a 9-9 record at the end of November, the Pistons have kicked into another gear as they are a 8-3 during December. Detroit scored with 55 seconds left, then the defense kept the Heat at bay, during a 93-92 win in Miami last night. Prior to that, the Pistons and Bulls waged an epic battle as Detroit posted a 147-144 four-overtime victory in Chicago on Friday. Those two matches, even though they were wins, were awfully grueling road battles.
Atlanta vs Detroit NBA Prediction: These teams meet for the second of four games this season as the Hawks look to avenge a 106-94 home and season opening loss to the Pistons back October 27. Detroit super-center Andre Drummond gave everyone a preview of things to come as he pulled down 19 of his now NBA high 470 rebounds in that contest. Detroit is 3-4 in the back-to-back dynamic this year and one has to wonder how much gas will be left in the tank on the road tonight.
