The Sacramento Kings are allowing 39.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.7 rebounds per game.

The Kings are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 48-23 in Kings last 71 overall. The over is 12-3 in Hawks last 15 overall. The Kings are 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Atlanta and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
It's hard to get a proper feel for either of these teams, as they've been more disappointing than anything, but they do show flashes at times. Right now the Hawks are riding a three game winning streak and they win in the favorite role by an average of three points. The Sacramento Kings still don't play a lick of defense and they lose on the road by an average of 5.1 points. I'm not thrilled with laying chalk with the Hawks, but I need more points to consider the Kings, especially on the road. It's Hawks or pass for me.
