We're at BetMGM for this one since they've got this for even money while everyone else seems to be -115 or higher. I mean everyone too. We're talking DraftKings (-120), FanDuel (-115) and BetRivers (-118). But for some reason, the people over at BetMGM are being slow to move this thing up. If I had to guess, I'd say they do it soon but not before we get our cash in on the even-money play. Feels good.

Here's the thing, this is almost more about basketball than the line. Obviously, the line is most important but the basketball part needs to be right. I like to back teams that are on heaters and right now, the Hawks and Trae Young are on a mini-heater. Not a huge one but a baby one. They've been over this number in three of their last four games and the last time out was in a game with a defensively efficient Phoenix Suns team. That's pretty impressive. Plus the Suns play kind of slow so they get extra points for that one. They dropped 132 on those guys.

Tonight they'll be in Utah running with the Jazz who play pretty fast. Up and down baby with a little chuck and duck in there too. Gotta love it. What's even better is the Jazz are third worst in the NBA in defensive efficiency over the last three games so there's that too. We've seen them give up 128 to the Toronto Raptors and 134 to the Portland Trail Blazers in the last ten days. The haters are going to bring up the fact that they held the Dallas Mavericks to 100 points but Luka didn't even play that night. Doesn't count. I bet the Hawks drop way more than 121 points tonight. Feels right.
