ROGERS' 10* FRIDAY NIGHT TOTAL 'BLOOD-BATH!' (HUGE FEB RUN CONT!)
Atlanta vs. Boston,
02/07/2020 19:30 EDT,
Score: 107 - 112
Total: -110/+234½ Under
The set-up: Both teams have been playing to some higher-scoring affairs of late, but all signs point to this one staying below the posted number once it's all said and done in my opinion. Both teams come in off victories, with ATL beating the Wolves and Boston getting the better of Orlando. Atlanta just traded away half its team, so don't expect much of anything from the visitors tonight. Boston remained quiet at the trade deadline, but the last thing it'll want to do here is to turn this into a "shootout." Note that the C's rank 17th in the league with an average of 102.9 possessions a night.
The pick: Note as well that ATL has seen the total go under the number in eight of its last 14 after allowing 110 points or more in four straight games, while Boston has seen the total dip below the posted number in five of its last seven after scoring 110 points or more in three straight games. Considering all of the above information, I definitely feel this number is a little high.
10* TOTAL ELITE OF THE ELITE on the UNDER Hawks/Celtics.
