The Atlanta Hawks led by star Joe Johnson welcome the struggling Detroit Pistons to town on Friday night. All sports odds and trends can be found at BetOnline sportsbook.
As far as betting wise head to head the Pistons are 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings, but are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in Atlanta. The home team in this matchup is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 games and the underdog is 5-2-1 in the last 8 games as well. The Hawks have dominated teams with less than a .400 win percentage as evident by the fact that they are 20-6-2 ATS in their last 28 games in such a circumstance. The Pistons on the other hand are just 5-15 ATS in their last 30 games when being a road underdog of between 5 and 10 points. They struggle against the better teams on the road as they are just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 vs. teams with a plus .600 win percentage.
The Hawks are just a confusing team no matter if you are looking at them from a gambler or regular fan point of view. They are famous for either winning big or losing bad and there is usually no middle ground to be quite honest. The Pistons on the other hand are clearly building for next season and beyond. They have however reeled off five of their last six and are probably playing their best ball of the season right now. They most recently defeated the Wizards last night.
With the way the Hawks confuse us we would not be chocked if they won by 2 points of 20 points. Because of their inconsistency in general coupled with the fact that Pistons have actually played decent on the road we like the Pistons with the points in this one. This pick is mainly the one because of the sheer amount of points you will be getting with Detroit so before betting check sports odds.
