NBA Betting Trends
The Hawks are 5-13 against the spread in their last 18 road games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following a win.
The 76ers are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine home games, but just 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss.
Atlanta has split the two games with Philly this year, both in Atlanta. However, the Hawks did cover in both games. The Hawks actually have covered in five straight against the 76ers. Philly has a great record at home, but the 76ers are without some big pieces and they are a team that has struggled offensively even at full health. The Hawks certainly aren’t a consistent team, but they have the ability to score behind Trae Young. They took advantage of the Mavs without Doncic and Porzingis on Saturday, and I think they can do enough to cover this spread against a short-handed Philly team.
