Prediction

The Pistons are having a bad start of the season losing 4 of their first 5 games but are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 head to head games vs Atlanta. The Hawks have done a good job so far winning 3 of their first 4 games but have covered the spread only once. The Pistons played better in the last game at home vs Hawks so that's probably the reason they dropped the line to -6.5 so I'll give it a shot with the Pistons to cover again.
