Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Atlanta Hawks remain the worst cover team in the NBA with a 22-44 ATS record, and they're still without their best player in Trae Young. If the Clippers were at full strength, this is a blowout waiting to happen. However, the Clippers are without Westbrook and they have a questionable Harden and Powell. The Clippers have also lost 3 of their last 4 games. So, I'm not thrilled to lay big numbers with the Clippers given their form and injury situation. It's the Hawks and the free buckets or pass for me.
