The Hawks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Kings are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Hawks last 5 road games. The under is 6-1 in Kings last 7 overall. The Hawks are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Sacramento and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks are playing their best ball of the season, which includes wins in eight of their last nine games and winning their last five games by an average of 9.8 points. The Sacramento Kings still aren't playing a lick of defense and aren't covering numbers. The Kings lose at home by an average of 4.8 points while allowing 49.7 percent shooting from the field. This line makes you think something fishy is going on. Either way, I'll lay the bucket with the Hawks on the road.
