The Knicks are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hawks are 4-1-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite, 8-3-2 ATS in their last 13 home games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Knicks last 8 overall. The over is 18-8 in Hawks last 26 overall. The Knicks are 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta and 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The New York Knicks are on the end of a back to back and are a team I have a hard time getting behind regardless of the situation. The Atlanta Hawks have run into a recent rough patch, but thy've won six of their last eight games at home where they're also 19-12 against the spread. I'd also consider the over in this game knowing that the last two times these teams have met, they've combined for 538 points, but in terms of a side, I'd lay the reasonable number with the Hawks at home.
