Suns vs. Hawks odds, line, spread: 2020 NBA picks, Jan. 14 predictions from advanced computer model
The SportsLine Projection Model has a pick for the clash between the Suns and Hawks.
The Phoenix Suns travel to State Farm Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks to help get the Tuesday NBA schedule underway at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Hawks are struggling with an 8-32 mark overall and four straight losses, but they're expected to get Trae Young (hamstring) back in the lineup on Tuesday after he missed Sunday's matchup against the Nets.
That NBA news has led to plenty of line movement. Atlanta is now a 3.5-point underdog in the latest Suns vs. Hawks odds after opening at +5. The over-under for total points expected is set at 230.5, well up from the opener of 225.5. Before locking in any Hawks vs. Suns picks, be sure to see the NBA predictions from the proven projection model at SportsLine.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times, and last season it returned a whopping $4,280 on its top-rated NBA spread and money line picks. It's already returned over $2,000 in profit on all its top-rated NBA picks during the 2019-20 season and entered Week 12 on a blistering 28-16 run on all top-rated NBA spread picks. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, it has simulated Hawks vs. Suns 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it also says one side of the spread has all the value. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
The model has considered what a boost the Hawks should get from Young. The second-year pro out of Oklahoma is fourth in the NBA in scoring (28.9 ppg) and dishing out assists (8.4). Additionally, Atlanta is hoping to have De'Andre Hunter, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, back in the lineup as he recovers from a finger injury. Hunter is averaging 11.9 points per contest.
While the Hawks have struggled overall, they've found some success against the spread at home. They're 10-8 against the number at State Farm Arena and 9-8 ATS when listed as a home underdog. The Suns, meanwhile are just 6-11 against the spread when favored this season.
Meanwhile, Phoenix was able to grind out a solid win over Charlotte on Sunday, 100-92. It was another big night for Kelly Oubre Jr., who posted a double-double on 25 points and a career-high 15 boards. Oubre has scored 17 or more points in eight consecutive games. The Hawks have allowed under 100 points in each of their past two games. Devin Booker hit just 25 percent of his shots against the Hornets and finished with 12 points.
Phoenix beat Atlanta 128-112 on Nov. 14. The Hawks have won the last five meetings between the teams in Atlanta.
So who wins Suns vs. Hawks? And which side of the spread has all the value? Visit SportsLine now to find out which side of the Hawks vs. Suns spread you need to jump on Tuesday, all from the model that has crushed its NBA picks.
