The Hawks are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 19-7 in Hawks last 26 Monday games. The over is 23-8 in Trail Blazers last 31 Monday games. The Hawks are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Portland and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Portland Trail Blazers are a mess right now and are actually losing their last five games by an average of 14.4 points while shooting 42 percent from the field. However, the Hawks have nearly their entire roster on the injury list for either injuries or COVID, and they're not playing much better. The Hawks continue to stink up the joint defensively, and they've lost to lesser teams during this stretch. There's no way I'm laying points with the Hawks on the road. It's the Trail Blazers or pass for me.
