The Atlanta Hawks and the Los Angeles Lakers do battle at the Staples Center on Saturday afternoon.

The Atlanta Hawks have been in great form as they will be looking to build on their current seven-game win streak after blowing past the Thunder in a 116-93 home win on Thursday. Trae Young led the team with 23 points, six rebounds and nine assists, Bogdan Bogdanovic added 23 points on nine of 14 shooting off the bench while John Collins chipped in with 19 points with three blocks on eight of 11 shooting. As a team, the Hawks shot 54 percent from the field and 11 of 33 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the tipoff and stormed out to a 21-point lead at halftime, before pushing the lead out to 27 points in the third quarter to put the game out of reach early.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers have been in great shape as they’ve won six of their past eight games and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after taking down the Hornets in a 116-105 home win on Thursday. LeBron James led the team with 37 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Dennis Schroder added 22 points with seven assists while Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker each scored 12 points. As a team, the Lakers shot 48 percent from the field and 13 of 39 from the 3-point line as they dominated the first half to lead by as many as 18 points, before pulling away in the fourth quarter where they poured in 33 points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Hawks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight road games, 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games following a win of more than 10 points and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall and the Hawks are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Los Angeles.

The Hawks are coming into this one with plenty of momentum after routing the Thunder in their last outing while the Lakers are getting healthier and they are red-hot after taking down the improving Hornets in their last game. This should be a close one, but the Hawks are just 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Los Angeles and I think that trend continues as the Lakers roll here.
