The Hawks are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

The under is 6-2 in Suns last 8 overall. The Hawks are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix.
The Atlanta Hawks are going through a rough patch at the moment where the defense has fallen off a cliff a bit, and Trae Young said after their loss to the Jazz that it feels like the team lacks motivation in the regular season. Not what you want to hear this early in the season. The Phoenix Suns have been sluggish at times as well, but it looks like they're starting to shape into form these last few games. The Suns are coming off their best showing on Thursday. We're not being asked to lay anything crazy. Give me the Suns and reasonable chalk.
