The Wizards look like a good team, but the Hawks are better. With a better bench and a much better defense, the Hawks should have no problem covering their spread tonight against a very shallow Wizards team. 

 

   Washington Wizards vs Atlanta Hawks 

The Wizards are one of those teams that are constantly overvalued. They could very easily miss the playoffs this season if they can't keep Bradley Beal healthy and while John Wall is a fantastic talent, this team has a lot of shortcomings. Their defense and rebounding are going to be very suspect this season, as is their bench.

The Wizards appear to have one of the worst benches in the league right now. While their starters are a good group, behind them is where it gets messy and against a Hawks team at home and improved on defense, I doubt the Wizards get much scoring here in this one. 

The Hawks, on the other hand, did well to bring in Dwight Howard to make up for the loss of Al Horford and with a newly inked Dennis Schroder hopefully giving you 60 to 70 percent of what Wall can give the Wizards, everything else should fall into place for this team. If Washington is overvalued, the Hawks may be undervalued here, thake that into account when making your NBA picks
