The Atlanta Hawks (34-27) travel to meet the Detroit Pistons (18-43) Monday at Little Caesars Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Hawks-Pistons odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Hawks picked up an impressive 111-104 victory Sunday against the Milwaukee Bucks as the Under cashed. Atlanta has won two in a row, and four of the past five, while also going 4-1 ATS during the stretch.

The Pistons are on a three-game skid, recently falling 115-109 on the road against the Indiana Pacers Saturday. Detroit last dropped four in a row March 21-27.

Hawks at Pistons: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Hawks 118, Pistons 109

Money line (ML)

The Hawks (-225) will cost you more than two times your potential return, and that’s just too risky on the road. Atlanta won the most recent meeting in late January, but it needed overtime to do so.

Against the spread (ATS)

The HAWKS -5.5 (-110) have cashed in four of the past five, and 11 of the previous 14 games overall. The Pistons have failed to cover in each of the past two. They haven’t had three straight non-covers since Feb. 17-21. Still, Atlanta has cashed in seven of its past eight as a favorite, while hitting in four of the past five against the number on the road.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 220.5 (-110) is my favorite play in this matchup. The Over has connected in each of the first two meetings this season, and four straight meetings in this series overall.

The Over is also 6-2 across the past eight on the road, while going 7-1 in the past eight as a road favorite. The Over is also 6-1 in the past seven for Atlanta in the second end of a back-to-back.

While the Under is 5-1-1 in the past seven for Detroit, the Over is 4-1-1 in the past six as a home underdog.
