    Man, still pissed about that no-call on the Harden play. Oh well.

    I locked in Hawks at (-5) over The Suns tomorrow.

    Full disclosure: Hawks last two road games were bad losses to lowly 76ers and Nuggets.

    But, generally, they've bounced back after their handful of blowouts this year. Suns have been wildly inconsistent since the All-Star break. They've won some games lately, but against mostly lowly teams (Twolves, Magic, Nets), with the exception of OKC.

    Hawks could look ahead on their road trip to games against OKC and GS, but I think if they give a good effort in this one they should win comfortably.

    Some stats:
    ATL 21-5 ATS in last 26 vs a team w/ a winning record
    Suns 4-9 ATS in last 13 vs team w/ .600 or higher winning %
    Suns 1-10-1 ATS in last 12 where opponent scored 100 or more in previous game
    Favorite 4-1 ATS in last 5

    Putting $44 on ATL to win $40

    Factor to consider when deciding whether to wait till closer to tip off to put the bet in: could move a point, or a point and a half towards Atlanta, but Budenholzer the Hawks coach is a Pop disciple, so don't be shocked if he gives DNP-Rests a starter or two, especially considering the quality of teams ahead on the road trip, and right, this likely wouldn't be announced until a few hours before the game.

    Best of luck fellas!

    Didn't you say this is fake money you are betting on some site? You could be the saddest degenerate ever.

    no i said i enter my picks into that site to track the ones I make w/ my bookie so that my record is verifiable

    linecooks at TGI Fridays don't usually provide you lot in terms of that :)

    But I'm not a degenerate lol, I place a couple of $20-$40 bets a week, nothing crazy

    Hawks 31-14 run in the 4th quarter to win by 9 and cover. Good stuff.
