After falling behind 2-0 in the series, Atlanta won Games 3 and 4 at home to even things up at 2-2. The home team has won and covered the spread in all four games in this series. Atlanta is 45-41 overall, 20-23 on the road and 41-45 against the spread. Washington is 51-35 overall, 32-11 at home and 44-41-1 against the spread.

The Hawks were able to even things up in Game 4 with a 111-101 victory. The two teams entered the four quarter tied, but the Hawks outscored the Wizards 34-24 in the final frame. Atlanta had great balance in their scoring, as seven players scored in double figures. Dwight Howard had a big game with 16 points and 15 rebounds while Paul Millsap had 19 points with nine rebounds and seven assists. Bradley Beal had 32 points and five rebounds to lead Washington while John Wall had 22 points and 10 assists.

Bet on Hawks vs. Wizards

The Hawks should come in with some confidence, but the Wizards are a different team at home and John Wall becomes a different player. The home team has won comfortably in each game of this series and I see that continuing tonight. Atlanta won’t get the same scoring output from their secondary stars on the road while Washington should get a boost from the likes of Markieff Morris and Otto Porter Jr.
