Nets @ Hawks tips, picks and prop bets: Trae Young and Mikal Bridges headline shootout in Atlanta

The Brooklyn Nets (10-9) visit the Atlanta Hawks (9-10) just two weeks after losing a 147-145 overtime shootout.

Scoring continues to rise in the NBA and the Atlanta Hawks featured in the highest-scoring game of the season to date, losing 157-152 to the Indiana Pacers.

The line on this game has been bet up by six points and there have been games this season where if you give Atlanta the right dance partner, no number feels high enough.

Atlanta’s offence is scoring 126ppg while the defence is allowing 127ppg. More importantly, the Brooklyn Nets have been much more willing to engage in a shootout on their travels.

They’re scoring 119ppg on their travels and shipping 121ppg. Even if you take them at their averages, we’re already at 240.

The Hawks rank third in pace so we know what to expect and although their 147-145 win over Brooklyn last month went to overtime, the game had already eclipsed 260 points.

That was not a one-off. The Nets have only played six games against teams in the top 10 of the pace ranking, but those games are 5-1 to the over.

Those six games averaged 240 points despite playing out a 102-94 win against the Wizards at home, where they usually keep things much tighter.

The over is 19-7 in the Hawks’ previous 26 home games and these teams have averaged 259 points across the past three meetings.

Bet: Over 243 points scored

Nets @ Hawks prop bets

Trae Young scored 43 points in his last game against the Nets and put on his best three-point shooting performance of the season.

Prop: Trae Young over 28.5 points

Mikal Bridges scored 42 points against Orlando, 26 in the first quarter, and dropped 45 on Atlanta last time out. He’ll have plenty of opportunity to beat this number.

Prop: Mikal Bridges over 24.5 points
