Pick
Under 229.5 (-105) @ Pointsbet

This is a 10* TOP NBA TOTAL on the UNDER Suns/Hawks.

This one sets up great from a situational stand point in my opinion. The Suns are off a 134-118 OT road win in Cleveland just last night and I think fatigue will be a major factor here for the Suns.

Also, with much more high-profile games starting at home vs. New York on Friday, followed by the Lakers, Warriors, Portland and two straight in San Antonio to finish the season, would anyone fault Phoenix for looking past its lowly non-conference opponent today?

The Hawks are off a high-scoring game as well, pulling away for a 123-114 home win over a tired Blazers side. ATL is just playing out the final games of the regular season, trying to avoid any serious injuries. Note that it's seen the total go UNDER the number in eight of its last 11 after a SU/ATS home win in which it scored 120 or more points in.

Look for these two non-conference opponents to play to a slower-paced, and ultimately lower-scoring UNDER on Wednesday night.

Good luck, NP

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
