Jack's Free Pick Monday!
Phoenix vs. Atlanta,
02/06/2012 19:30 EDT,
Score: 99 - 90
Point Spread: -7½/-106 Atlanta
Off back-to-back bad losses, the Atlanta Hawks will be highly motivated for a win tonight when they host the lowly Phoenix Suns. I look for Atlanta to roll by double-digits behind an inspired effort.
Atlanta is still one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference at 16-8. Phoenix has become a bottom feeder in the Western Conference this season as they simply have not surrounded Steve Nash with enough talent. The Suns are 9-14 on the year, and they're getting outscored by 7.2 points/game on the road.
Phoenix is 9-25 ATS in their last 34 when playing 8 or more games in 14 days. The Suns are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 after 2 straight games where they were called for 18 or less fouls. The Suns are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Hawks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. Bet Atlanta Monday.
