Golden State enters play tonight winners of seven of its last 10 games but is just 3-7 against the spread during that same span. The Warriors are also 27-33 against the number on the season, including 13-19 ATS on the road this year.
Atlanta has dropped six of its last 10 games and is just 3-7 against the number over that same stretch. The Hawks have a losing ATS record overall at 29-33, which includes a 13-18 record against the spread in their home games this season.
OUR PREDICTION: The Warriors are winless at 0-6 against the spread in their last six games but I like they to cover here. The Hawks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games, are 1-6 against the number in their last seven games overall, and are just 1-4 at the betting window in their last five games versus a team with a winning record. Steph Curry has struggled of late but found his shot against the Knicks on Sunday and helped carry a Warriors team that was shell-shocked by Kevin Durant's injury. But at some point Golden State will flip that switch again and if it's tonight, the Warriors could roll versus a below average Hawks team that is struggling right now.
