    Team Outlook and Scouting Report

    SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

    De'Andre Hunter is a perfect fit for the Hawks and they are projected to make a significant +5 to 7 win improvement from last season. Their odds to win it all are 300/1, 0.3% (#21). They win the championship in less than 0.1% of simulations. They are not a good value to win the East either at 120/1, 0.8%. The Hawks are averaging 33.2 wins per sim which is essentially the same as their futures line of 33.5 wins. At +225 the Hawks are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 8.3% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 6/1, 14.3%. They win the division in 2.5% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #10 in the East.
