Atlanta opened as a 9-point underdog but Golden State has climbed to -10 at the majority of online sportsbooks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 221 points after opening at that same exact number.
As of this writing, 74% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Warriors to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 65% of the betting tickets wagered online are on the under.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
The Warriors are dealing with a slew of injuries still. Draymond Green (groin) is out, as are Kevin Durant (rib) and Klay Thompson (thumb). That said, Steph Curry should be back after missing time with an ankle injury. He's probable to play tonight.
The under has cashed in nine of the Hawks' last 10 road games, is 6-0 in their last six road games when playing an opponent with a home winning percentage greater than .600, and is 6-1 in its last seven games when playing a foe with a win percentage above .600. On the other side, the under is 8-2 in the Warriors' last 10 games overall, is 5-0 in their last five home games, and is 7-1 in their last eight games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
