Free Toronto Raptors vs Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
This game has the chance to be a future Eastern Conference semi’s game. Both of these teams have been somewhat struggling as of late. This will be a very close, but low scoring game.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: There’s no line yet. Check back later for a free ATS or O/U pick.
I’m taking the Hawks in this game because Lowry and DeRozan has seem to be banged up lately, and the Milsap-Teague duo has been playing well.
