The Hawks are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Saturday games. The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The over is 4-0 in Hawks last 4 Saturday games. The over is 7-3 in Raptors last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The Hawks are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Toronto and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Atlanta Hawks are on the end of a back to back and as I've said many times this season they're a very underachieving club. The Toronto Raptors are in a similar boat, but they have won 3 straight games and there's a clear edge with the rest advantage. I'm just not a fan of the Hawks this season, if you couldn't have figured that out by now. Give me the Raptors and the reasonable number.
