Hawks Trying To Snap Three-Game Losing Streak

The Hawks have played better on the defensive e end, holding opponents to 108.9 points per game. However, they have struggled in their last three games and are giving up 119.3 points per game during that span. They will have to play better than they have in their last three games if they want to pick up the win.

Nuggets Going For Eighth Win In 11 Games

The Nuggets followed up their first losing streak of the season by winning their last four games and are now tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the best record in the NBA. They will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Hawks, which will give them their fifth win in a row.

Denver hasn’t played well offensively, averaging 103.3 points per game, which is 27th in the league. The team is shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from three-point range.

Jamal Murray leads the team with 18.8 points, five rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game. Nikola Jokic is averaging 16.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, and six assists per game, while Will Barton is averaging 14.9 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Denver has done a great job defensively, holding opponents to 100.3 points per game, which is third in the league. They have held their last four opponents under 100 points and will try to do the same to the Hawks on Tuesday night.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Nuggets are the pick here because these are two teams heading in opposite directions. The Hawks have lost six of their last seven games and haven’t played well against the spread in those games. The Nuggets haven’t been flashy, but they have won seven of their first nine games on the strength of their defense, which is third in the league and holding opponents to 100.3 points per game. The Hawks haven’t played well offensively and will struggle to score against the Nuggets, who will win this game in a blowout.

Prediction: Denver Nuggets

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


The Hawks are averaging 104.4 points per game and likely won’t break 100 points against Denver’s stifling defense. The Nuggets have also struggled offensively, but they will go over their season average of 104.4 points per game against a Hawks defense that has given up 119.3 points per game in their last three games. Even though the Nuggets will score against Atlanta, it won’t be enough to go over the total.


Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:


The Nuggets will cover the first-half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Hawks in the first half of their last three games, averaging 49.7 points per game while the Hawks average 44 points per game.

Prediction: Denver Nuggets

Half-Time Total Bet

Insiders Status:


The Nuggets and Hawks are averaging 93.7 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games and will stay under the first-half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.

Prediction: Under
