The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Sunday games. The Hawks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Hawks last 7 road games. The Hawks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Denver and 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks have been a much improved team over the last month or so and they're probably a team you shouldn't leave points on the table with. However, the Denver Nuggets are just a bit more trustworthy and they win at home by an average of 4.9 points. I need to see a little bit more before I trust the Hawks in spots like this. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Nuggets at home.
