Hawks playing well out West
Atlanta is coming off a 123-118 win at the Clippers on Monday. The Hawks are 2-1 on this current road trip. Atlanta is 16-33 overall, 8-20 on the road, 22-27 against the spread and 27-22 with the over.
The Hawks have the league’s worst defense, allowing 117.5 points per game while opponents shoot 47.4 percent against them. Offensively, Atlanta is putting up 110.2 points per game while shooting 45.2 percent from the field. Kent Bazemore is questionable to play tonight with an ankle injury. He is averaging 14 points per game this season. John Collins is leading the team with 19.5 points and 10.0 rebounds per contest.
Kings fall at Clippers
Sacramento is coming off a 122-108 loss at the Clippers on Sunday. They have played six straight on the road, going 2-4 straight up and 2-4 against the spread. The Kings are 25-25 overall, 14-10 at home, 28-22 against the spread and 27-22-1 with the over.
The Kings have been pretty solid on offense this season, averaging 113 points per game while shooting 38.3 percent from the arc. Defensively, the Kings are giving up 115.1 points per game while opponents shoot 46.7 percent against them. Buddy Hield is leading the team with 20.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game while De’Aaron Fox is adding 17.6 points and 7.2 assists per contest.
NBA Betting Trends
The Hawks are 5-1 against the spread in their last six against Western Conference opponents and 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 games against Pacific Division opponents.
The Kings are 12-1 against the spread in their last 13 games against Southeast Division opponents. Sacramento is 24-9 ATS in its last 33 against Eastern Conference opponents.
The Hawks had a nice win on Monday, but I don’t think it will carry over tonight. Atlanta has a poor defense and is going to face a really good offensive team on their home floor. The Kings should have no problem scoring, as Atlanta doesn’t have the players to stop them. The spread isn’t much for them to cover, so I will go with Sacramento to handle its business at home.
