Hawks vs. Pistons odds, line: 2021 NBA picks, Oct. 25 predictions from proven computer model

The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Detroit Pistons at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday at State Farm Arena. The Hawks made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season before losing to the eventual NBA champions, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Atlanta is favored by 10.5 points in the latest Hawks vs. Pistons odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is set at 213. Before entering any Pistons vs. Hawks picks, you’ll want to see the NBA predictions from the model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Pistons

The Pistons’ last game against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday wasn’t a total blowout, but Detroit still came up short on the road, 97-82. The game got away from Detroit in the third quarter, once the Pistons went down by a 79-54 deficit. Small forward Jerami Grant played for 31 minutes but put up just nine points on 4-for-13 shooting and had four turnovers.

Detroit struggled against Atlanta last season, and won just one of the three games between the two sides. In those games, the Pistons did some of their best work protecting the ball, and only averaged 11.7 turnovers, their second-lowest mark against all opponents. Josh Jackson was one of Detroit’s more effective players against the Hawks last season, with 17 points per game in those meetings, but he hasn’t factored into the Pistons’ rotation as heavily to start this season, and averages just 17.5 minutes and 5.5 points per game.

What you need to know about the Hawks

The Hawks were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 101-95 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Despite the loss, Atlanta got a solid performance out of point guard Trae Young, who had 24 points and seven assists. Young got his points, but was inefficient from beyond the arc, and made just one of his six 3-point attempts.

Young should be primed for a better outing on Monday, after he had some of his best showings last season against Detroit. In the two games he played against the Pistons, he averaged 33.5 points, and hit a much healthier 45 percent of his 3-point attempts. Big man Clint Capela was also effective against Detroit last year and had eight blocks and 50 total rebounds in three games against the Pistons.
