Atlanta -6 over Detroit
7:00 PM EST. When a team burns you, there can be a strong temptation to want to fade that team the next time out. We call that “zig-zagging” and it’s not a winning proposition over time. Instead, the move is to “stick with it.” If you saw value in a team in their last game and it failed to send you to the pay window, there is a great chance there will be even more value on that side the next time out.
That’s exactly the spot we’re in tonight, as we backed the Hawks in game one of this double shot in Detroit, but we ripped up those tickets. Atlanta was a 7½-point favorite on Wednesday night and was up eight with just four minutes to play. Rather than close out that game, the Hawks almost blew it. They won but did not cover and now we get them at a reduced rate here. That’s value, friends.
