The Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks collide at the State Farm Arena on Sunday night.

The Dallas Mavericks have been in dreadful form as they’ve lost six of their last seven games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after falling short to the Heat in a 129-122 road loss on Saturday. Luka Doncic led the team with 42 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, Tim Hardaway Jr. added 31 points with six rebounds and seven assists while Kyrie Irving chipped in with 23 points and eight assists. As a team, the Mavericks shot 61 percent from the field and 14 of 34 from the 3-point line as they got off to another poor start and

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have struggled to build any momentum as they’ve split their last eight games and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting thrashed by the Nets in a 124-107 loss on Friday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 21 points and five assists on nine of 15 shooting, Saddiq Bey added 16 points while Onyeka Okongwu chipped in with 12 points, six rebounds and two blocks off the bench. As a team, the Hawks shot just 42 percent from the field and eight of 37 from the 3-point line as they looked to be off to a quick start when they poured in 33 points in the first quarter, only to get dominated and outplayed in the second and third quarters where they allowed 76 points combined to trail by as many as 23 points in this one. Trae Young had a rough game as he finished with just 10 points on three of 12 shooting from the field and zero of six shooting from the 3-point line.

Looking at the betting trends, the Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games playing on zero days rest, 8-23-1 ATS in their last 32 games against a team with a losing record and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Hawks are 2-12 ATS in their last 14 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a losing road record.

Head to head, the Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Atlanta and the Mavericks are 4-14 ATS in the last 18 meetings overall.

The Mavericks will again be without Frank Ntilikina, while the Hawks are still missing De’Andre Hunter. The Mavericks have really struggled the entire season and they’ve been cold lately with just one win in their last seven outings, while the Hawks have struggled to string consecutive wins together all season. You couldn’t back either team with much confidence these days, but it’s always fun when Young and Doncic matchup. This should be a close one, so I’ll lean towards the Hawks to get the job done at home as the Mavericks are only 4-14 ATS in the last 18 meetings overall.
