With plenty of rest over All-Star weekend, travel shouldn't be an issue for Atlanta Tuesday in LA. Grab the points and the Hawks when they visit Kobe and the Lakers.
No doubt the Los Angeles Lakers have the deepest team in the NBA, and really, their only worry is the Boston Celtics in June.
Here, they open the break against always game Atlanta (31-21) who has the athleticism to play with the Lakers (42-10) for four quarters. With teams rested off the break, the road scenario will not be a negative travel issue for Atlanta. Therefore, the visitor has a real shot at pulling off the outright upset.
Atlanta has covered the number in four of their last five and show at 4-0 ATS on Tuesday's. Solid as a rock LA floors with a horrid 1-8 ATS mark versus the Southeast. Plus the Lakers are 2-6 ATS on Tuesday and 3-9 ATS off a SU loss. The points are worth a serious look!
Free Pick: Hawks +10 (-110)
