NBA Betting Trends
The Hawks are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight road games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 against Western Conference opponents.
The Spurs are just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 following a loss and 0-4 ATS in their last four against losing teams.
Like the Thunder, the Spurs aren’t really playing with much consistency right now. They have struggles as of late, event against poor teams. Though Atlanta is out of the playoff picture, they have picked up wins over the Bucks, 76ers and Jazz in recent weeks. They seem to be playing loose and comfortable right now despite having nothing to play for. I will take my chances on that continuing while getting a lot of points. The Spurs aren’t showing they can really blow out anyone right now.
NBA Prediction: Atlanta Hawks +11.5
