Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks Prediction
1u - Kristaps Porzingis 22+ PTS / 5+ REB (-140) (Bet $140 to collect $240) Get the best odds, available at DraftKings
Now, I could just play the 22.5 points line at PointsBet for -115, but I really want this number at 22 and not 23. Porzingis has scored exactly 22 points in 5 of his last 24 games. Additionally, he has five-plus rebounds in 49/55 games on the season and is currently riding a streak of 17 games straight accomplishing that.
Porzingis gets a nice matchup against a Hawks team that allows the eighth most points to power forwards and the 11th most to centers. Whether or not Kristaps is sharing the floor with Gafford or not, he should have a favorable matchup regardless of whether it being against Collins or Capela. Kristaps is coming off of a red-hot February, where he averaged 26.7 points per game in the month.
Porzingis has hit this 22/5 line in 7 of his last 8 games and in his lone game against Atlanta as a member of Washington, he put up a cool 26/18 in that game. For whatever reason, Kristaps performs very well in back-to-backs this season, averaging nearly 28 and nine. Tonight is one of those as they squeaked out a win against Detroit last night. Let's hope we get Kristaps and not Tingus Pingus tonight, let's roll!
