The Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks duel at Madison Square Garden tonight in a game between two struggling Eastern Conference opponents. Let’s take a look at some of the odds in favor of this match, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.
DeAndre Hunter 18+ Score + Rebounds (-120)
The Hawks’ small starting striker is usually not a good scoring plan. However, when Hunter was called upon to score, he complied. Lately he’s been getting more and more calls. This was because the defense focused all of their attention on Trae Young. This opens the door for the likes of Hunter to shine. Hunter is averaging 15.7 points and 2.6 rebounds per game so far in March. Hunter has three games over 20 points in his last nine and has surpassed this total in three of his last four.
Evan Fournier OVER 16.5 Points (+100)
Fournier has the luxury of playing a very soft Hawks defense tonight. I hope he gets the most out of that game. For starters, Fournier died from behind the arc. He is averaging 3.2 goals per game and 13.4 points per game so far in March. The Hawks, on the other hand, ranked 26th in terms of opponent’s three-point shot rate. They often seem uninterested in belt protection and Fournier will make them pay for it. He’s surpassed this total in two of his last four games – once against the Jazz and once against the Nets.
Alec Burks 20+ Points + Revival (-135)
In the same way that the Knicks defense will focus on Young, the Hawks will focus on RJ Barrett. Julius Randle will come out tonight with a painful quad and Barrett will be their opponent tonight. Randle’s injury opened up more opportunities for Burks. He has scored double figures in five of his last six games and is averaging 6.4 rebounds per game. While those averages are a bit low to hit this fulcrum, I think the post is already written on the wall for him to leave tonight.
