The Philadelphia 76ers travel to the State Farm Arena to battle the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been struggling for consistency as they’ve lost nine of their past 12 games and they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after falling just short to the Celtics in an 88-87 road loss on Wednesday. Seth Curry led the team in scoring with 17 points and six assists, Shake Milton added 16 points while Joel Embiid finished with 13 points, 18 rebounds, six assists and three blocks. As a team, the 76ers shot just 37 percent from the field and eight of 31 from the 3-point line as they rallied back from a 12-point deficit only to come up painfully short as Georges Niang had his potential game-winning shot blocked at the buzzer. It was an ugly game for both teams, but Tyrese Maxey shot just three of 13 from the field while Joel Embiid shot just three of 17 from the field.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in great form as they’ve won eight of their past nine games and they will be looking to stay hot after sneaking past the Pacers in a 114-111 road win on Wednesday. Trae Young led the team with 33 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists, Kevin Huerter added 19 points on eight of 11 shooting while John Collins chipped in with 14 points and four blocks. As a team, the Hawks shot 51 percent from the field and 16 of 33 from the 3-point line as they squandered an early 12-point lead, before coming back in the fourth quarter where they escaped on free throws as the Pacers’ Chris Duarte missed the potential game-winning basket.

Looking at the betting trends, the 76ers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five road games, 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Hawks are 28-11 ATS in their last 39 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games playing on one days’ rest and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games overall.

Head to head, the under is 5-0 in the last five meetings overall and the 76ers are 2-7 ATS in the last nine meetings in Atlanta.

The 76ers have struggled to build momentum ever since Joel Embiid went down and their confidence took another hit after falling painfully short to the Celtics on Wednesday. The Hawks went through their struggles at the start of the season, but they’re on a roll now as they’ve won eight of their last nine while covering the spread in seven of those wins. The 76ers are only 2-7 ATS in the last nine meetings in Atlanta, so I’m leaning towards the Hawks to stay hot with another win and cover at home.
