Hawks vs Jazz Prediction, Odds and NBA Picks Friday, March 15

Two weeks ago, the Atlanta Hawks were the best NBA bet after defeating the Utah Jazz 124-97 in Atlanta, and now the Jazz aim for redemption in their upcoming Friday game. The Hawks, 10th in the Eastern Conference, are 2.5 games ahead of the Brooklyn Nets for the final Play-In spot. They recently snapped a three-game winning streak by losing to the Pelicans and Trailblazers and appear to be on the up and up.

In contrast, the Utah Jazz, with a stronger home record of 19-13 compared to their poor 9-24 on the road, are struggling. They have won only two of their last ten games. They are looking to improve after tough matches against two of the best teams in the NBA, the Celtics and the Nuggets, which resulted in a combined 165-128 defeat. The upcoming game presents the Jazz with a vital opportunity to capitalize on their success at the Delta Center.

Here’s a look at some NBA Lines and NBA Game Odds to consider!

Hawks vs Jazz Over/Under Pick: Under 222½

Considering the defensive prowess and offensive struggles in the upcoming Hawks vs Jazz game, betting on the total falling under 222.5 points seems wise. Historically, these teams tend to have low-scoring encounters, with the total going under in seven of their last eight meetings. This trend suggests tight, defensively focused games between the two.

Additionally, the Hawks have recently demonstrated a lack of offensive firepower, contributing to the total going under in four straight games and eight out of their last ten. While Utah’s offense has been more potent, showing strong performance in their recent games with the total going over in their last five, they are about to face a formidable defense in Atlanta. This matchup could neutralize Utah’s offensive momentum, which previously saw the NBA betting total go under in four consecutive games before their scoring uptick.

Given these patterns — Atlanta’s offensive struggles and historical low-scoring games between the two — betting on the game to stay under 222½ points appears prudent.

Hawks vs Jazz Player Prop Pick: Keyonte George Over 29½ Points + Rebounds + Assists (-121)

Keonte George has been in excellent form recently, making the Over on his player prop a compelling bet. Excluding a short performance against the Wizards, his last four totals in points, rebounds, and assists are 33, 40, 39, and 31, showcasing his all-around game. In his last ten starts, he’s averaged 19.2 points and 3.8 three-pointers, exploiting defenses like the Hawks’, who allow the third-most points and fourth-most triples this season.

George’s average for points, rebounds, and assists over these games is 28, significantly above the line. With him surpassing the Over in four straight games (excluding the Wizards game) and facing the porous Hawks defense, the favorable odds with an implied probability of 51.2% offer significant value. Thus, an NBA pick on the Over on George’s player prop is a strong choice.

Questions Of The Day

Which Hawks player will finish the game as the top scorer?


The current odds list Dejounte Murray (O/U 26.5 points) as the most likely candidate to lead the Falcons and the game in scoring. Despite his offensive success, Murray isn’t on the list of NBA futures odds for end-of-year awards.

Are injuries an issue for Friday’s Hawks vs Jazz game?


Kris Dunn, Taylor Hendricks, Lauri Markkanen, and Jordan Clarkson are all out on Friday for the Jazz. Atlanta will be without Jalen Johnson, Saddiq Bey, Seth Lundy, Onyeka Okongwu, and Kobe Bufkin. Trae Young remains out, and Bogdan Bogdanovic is questionable.
