Hawks on long road trip

Atlanta is playing its sixth straight road game tonight and the Hawks are coming off a 128-112 loss at Utah last night. They are 2-3 overall and against the spread on this road trip. The Hawks are 16-35 overall, 8-13 at home, 8-22 on the road, 22-29 against the spread and 29-22 with the over.

The Hawks have the worst defense in the NBA, giving up 118.1 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 47.6 percent against them. Offensively, Atlanta is putting up 110.3 points per game while shooting just 45 percent as a team. John Collins is leading the team with 19.3 points and 9.8 rebounds per game. Trae Young is adding 16.7 points and 7.4 assists per contest.

Suns fall again

Phoenix is on a 9-game losing streak right now following a 126-124 loss at San Antonio on Tuesday. The Suns covered, though, to snap a four-game failed cover streak. Phoenix is now 11-42 on the season, 7-19 at home, 23-30 against the spread and 28-25 with the under.

The Suns rank second-to-last in defense, allowing 115.7 points per game while opponents shoot 48.2 percent against them. Offensively, Phoenix is putting up 106.1 points per game while shooting 45.7 percent as a team. Already without T.J. Warren, forward Dragan Bender is questionable to play tonight with a thumb injury. Devin Booker is leading the team with 24.8 points and 6.7 assists per game while Deandre Ayton is adding 16.4 points and 10.6 rebounds per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Atlanta

The Hawks have failed to cover in seven straight games on no rest and in five of their last seven overall.

Phoenix

The Suns are 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games against a losing team and in four of their last five Saturday games.

Prediction:

Atlanta will have worn out legs tonight after playing in Utah last night. The Hawks have to be running out of steam after being on the road the last two weeks. Phoenix isn’t much to feel great about, but the Suns are at home and can definitely score on this poor Atlanta defense. Look for Booker to have a big game to lead the Suns to the cover.

NBA Prediction: Phoenix Suns -2.5
