The Atlanta Hawks play host to the Indiana Pacers at the State Farm Arena on Tuesday night.
The Indiana Pacers have been in a real slump as they’ve lost seven of their past nine games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game skid after getting routed by the Cavaliers in a 98-85 road loss on Sunday. Chris Duarte led the team with 22 points on seven of 12 shooting, Duane Washington Jr. added 17 points off the bench while Justin Holiday chipped in with 10 points. As a team, the Pacers shot just 37 percent from the field and eight of 31 from the 3-point line as they jumped out to an early 20-point lead after holding the Cavaliers to just 12 points in the first quarter, but they couldn’t maintain that pace and got run down in the fourth quarter where they were outscored by 37-17.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have cooled off since their seven-game win streak as they’ve lost three of their past four games and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting stopped by the Mavericks in a 103-94 road loss on Sunday. John Collins led the team with 22 points and 18 rebounds, Trae Young added 17 points with 11 assists while DeAndre Hunter chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Hawks shot just 38 percent from the field and a miserly five of 25 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Mavericks in a close contest until the fourth quarter where the Mavericks closed the final 4:04 on a 15-8 run to snatch the game from them late.
Looking at the betting trends, the Pacers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. The Hawks are 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games ,2-5 ATS in their last seven games following a loss and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
Head to head, the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Atlanta and the over is 5-0 in the last five meetings overall.
The Pacers will again be without Myles Turner and TJ McConnell while Malcolm Brogdon and Isaiah Jackson are both listed as questionable. The Hawks will again be missing Lou Williams and Danilo Gallinari, but they should have John Collins return which is a boost for the Hawks. The Pacers made some moves and they will be better for it once they get healthy again, but they’re going to really struggle in the short term while players get accustomed, so I'm sticking with the Hawks to bounce back with a win and cover at home.
