The Hawks are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 9-21 ATS in their last 30 Friday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 7-3 in Hawks last 10 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 6-1 in Nuggets last 7 overall. The Hawks are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks look like a team that's free-falling out of control or hasn't recovered from a deep playoff run hangover. The Denver Nuggets are enjoying their best stretch of the season, and they get a rested Jokic back to the lineup. I need to see the Hawks break out of this funk before I can take them seriously. Price is reasonable, so give me the Nuggets at home.
