The over is 4-1 in Hawks last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Spurs last 7 overall. The Hawks are 6-14-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings in San Antonio.
Right when it looked like the Atlanta Hawks were turning things around, they lose four of their last five games and are losing their last five games by an average of 5.2 points while allowing 50.5 percent shooting from the field. The San Antonio Spurs played last night, but they looked decent against the Kings and are an experienced team that knows they need to string together wins if they're going to position themselves for a playoff push. The Hawks are a weird team to figure out, especially if the defensive issues continue. Give me the Spurs in this toss up.
