The Hawks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The under is 8-2 in Kings last 10 games playing on 0 days rest. The Hawks are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Atlanta Hawks are a complete mess right now in terms of results and how many players they have on their injury list. I'm not running to the window to back the Hawks in any shape or form. However, the Sacramento Kings situation isn't all that better, and they're on the end of a back to back in this spot. The Hawks have covered a lot of road games as of late, while the Kings are losing at home by an average of 3.7 points. In a near pick em spot, give me the rested Hawks and the free point.
