Hawks vs. Suns Odds Analysis

The Suns opened as 1-point favorites before the spread touched as high as 2, but the line is back down to 1 or 1.5 at most of our top-rated sportsbooks. PointsBet offers the lone 2-point spread for those wanting to back the road underdog.

As for the total, the opening number of 233.5 fell to 231.5 at most shops. DraftKings sits at 232, the preferred destination for anyone making an Under bet for this game.

Entering tonight’s battle, Atlanta is just 22-29 against the spread and 30-21 to the Over. Phoenix is 27-25 ATS and had 27 of its games finish Under the closing point total.

Hawks vs. Suns Pick

Suns -1 (-110 via DraftKings) ⭐⭐⭐⭐ vs. Hawks

Hawks point guard Trae Young is probable for tonight after missing the last game due to an ankle injury. The Suns are still without shooting guard Devin Booker, and it's no question they're not the same level of team without him.

But all of that gives enough discount on the hosts to take the spread, especially with DraftKings offering a 1-point line. Counting on the Suns to prevail in a game they should win by five is the best bet ahead of tonight’s nationally-televised battle.

Atlanta is just 12-15 overall and 12-14-1 ATS on the road, while Phoenix won 19 of its 27 home matchups and went 13-8 against the spread as a home favorite. Home-court advantage mattes a lot in the NBA this year. Expect that to continue tonight.

This is also an interesting battle of offense vs. defense, as the Hawks ranks No. 2 in offensive efficiency over the last two weeks while the Suns are third in defensive efficiency over that span.

In the end, bet on the better defense to ultimately win this one at home.

Hawks vs. Suns Best Odds

DraftKings (-110)


Only two books offer a 1-point spread, with DraftKings the preferred option due to its -110 offering on the vig. Based on my numbers, I’d lay as much as 2 before passing on this contest entirely.
