NBA FREE PICK: Atlanta Hawks -5.5

The Hawks got embarrassed 86-102 at home by the Raptors yesterday. For whatever reason, Atlanta simply didn't show up to play. That horrible loss should work out in our favor, as I have Atlanta showing some incredible value as a 5.5-point favorite tonight.

The Hawks are without question the better team. They aren't going to let the Raptors take it to them again. Look for Atlanta to come out with a ton of intensity and I wouldn't be surprised if they won this game by 20-points.

This is a great spot to back the Hawks. Atlanta is 12-4 ATS when playing on back-to-back days this season, while the Raptors are just 18-33 ATS in home games after playing a road game over the last 3 seasons. BET THE HAWKS!
