The New Orleans Pelicans will look to keep their winning ways going when they face the Atlanta Hawks Saturday. The Pelicans are coming in off a win Friday over the Warriors, while the Hawks stormed back to beat the Knicks in their last outing Wednesday.
The Hawks are 1-point favorites per DraftKings Sportsbook. The total is set at 231. Trae Young is questionable for this game with an eye injury but he’s expected to play.
Pelicans vs. Hawks, 7:30 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Hawks -1
Atlanta is well rested and should have Young back. The Pelicans are coming off a tight game against Golden State’s backups and might be a step slower defensively. Take the Hawks in what is essentially a moneyline play.
Over/Under: Over 231
Both teams are in the top 10 in points per game and even on the second night of a back-to-back, the Pelicans will be trying to keep up with Atlanta. These are two of the most explosive offensive teams in the NBA and the over is the play, even with a slightly higher than normal total.
