The Washington Wizards pay a visit to the Atlanta Hawks at the State Farm Arena on Monday night.

The Washington Wizards have been in red-hot form as they’ve won five of their first six games and they will be looking to build on their current three-game win streak after outlasting the Celtics in a 115-112 double overtime win on Saturday. Bradley Beal led the team with 36 points, seven rebounds and six assists, Montrezl Harrell added 20 points with 14 rebounds, Spencer Dinwiddie added 20 points with nine rebounds and four assists while Kyle Kuzma chipped in with 17 points, 17 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Wizards shot just 36 percent from the field and 10 of 36 from the 3-point line, so you can credit this win to their defense as they held the Celtics’ Jayson Tatum to just 10 of 32 shooting from the field and Dennis Schroder to just one of seven shooting.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have split their first six games this season and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting dismantled by the 76ers in a 122-94 road loss on Saturday. Cameron Reddish led the team in scoring with 16 points off the bench, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Trae Young each scored 13 points while Clint Capela chipped in with 11 points and 12 rebounds, but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Hawks shot just 37 percent from the field and eight of 22 from the 3-point line, but they were always fighting an uphill battle after scoring just 15 points in the first quarter to fall behind by double-digits early. Young had a quiet night as he shot just five of 16 from the field, John Collins scored just eight points on three of nine shooting while DeAndre Hunter shot just three of 10 for his seven points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 road games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog and 25-9-1 ATS in their last 35 games overall. The Hawks are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last fie games overall.

Head to head, the over is 16-6-1 in the last 23 meetings in Atlanta and the Wizards are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall.

The Wizards have been the surprise team of the league so far as they’ve hit the ground running this season with a new-look team, so they’re more than a chance to pull off the upset here. The Hawks have cooled off with a couple of losses on the trot and their confidence took a real hit after getting blown out by the 76ers on Saturday. With that being said, the Wizards are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and I think they represent decent value as the underdogs in this spot.
