The Nuggets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. The Hawks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 37-17-2 in Nuggets last 56 overall. The over is 7-0 in Hawks last 7 overall. The Nuggets are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta and 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

I know the Denver Nuggets are banged up, but they still have the best players on the court for this matchup and are still finding ways to win games. The Atlanta Hawks have lost 10 of their last 14 games, are 6-9 against the spread at home and are losing their last five games by an average of 7.6 points while allowing 51.3 percent shooting from the field. This line should probably be a lot steeper than it is. I'll gladly lay the small chalk with the Nuggets.
