The Nets may be a sneaky underdog play tonight against the struggling Hawks. While Atlanta’s offense should have no problem scoring against the Nets, they could also let this double-digit dog stay within the spread.

 Nets vs. Hawks

There is something going on with the Hawks right now. Dennis Schroder was benched after having an argument with Dwight Howard, in a game where Schroder was already playing well. The Hawks have lost three in a row SU and four in a row ATS, they can’t score and tonight they play one of the worst teams in the league.

Say what you want about the Nets, they play hard though. They proved that by beating down the Grizzlies in the fourth quarter in Memphis the other night. This team has no need to tank thanks to not owning their draft pick anyway and tonight they play in Atlanta as a +10 underdog.

While taking the points outright has crossed my mind, I think the better play may be a teaser for this one. Moving the Nets to +15 against a team that can’t score even against bad teams is good for me and combined with lowering the total and betting the over, it’s a fine play this evening.

The Nets are 20-11 cashing the over when playing on the road this season and they have been undervalued on the road at times this season. Just like tonight. The Nets are 14-15 ATs on the road this season, but when playing as a double-digit underdog they are 13-11 ATS this season and they are 10-9 ATS when playing as a road double-digit underdog.

The Hawks on the other hand are 13-19 ATS at home this season and they are 12-16 ATS as a home favorite.
