The Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Hawks vs Pacers prediction.

Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks have been in poor form as they've lost six of their last eight games and they will be hoping to arrest a five-game slide after getting beaten by the Timberwolves in a 109-106 road defeat on Friday. Trae Young led the team with 19 points and seven assists, Bogdan Bogdanovic added 17 points while Clint Capela tallied 13 points with 11 rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Hawks shot 44 percent from the field and nine of 30 from the 3-point line as they fought hard to claw their way back from an early 17-point deficit, only to go cold and score just four points in the final 1:46 to allow the Timberwolves off the hook in the end.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been in decent shape as they've won five of their last seven games overall but they are looking to bounce back in this one after falling short to the Cavaliers in a 129-120 road defeat on Friday. Pascal Siakam led the team with 19 points, Myles Turner added 17 points with six rebounds and five assists while TJ McConnell chipped in with 16 points and seven assists off the bench. As a team, the Pacers shot 51 percent from the field and nine of 32 from the 3-point line as they showed plenty of fight to erase a 14-point deficit, before allowing the Cavaliers to slip away on free throws down the stretch.

  • The Pacers rank 1st in the league for assists per game this season (30.6).
  • The Hawks rank 2nd in the league for offensive rebounds per game this season (12.5).
  • The Hawks rank 2nd in the league for field goal attempts per game this season (92.5).

Hawks vs Pacers prediction

The Hawks are still shorthanded with Wesley Matthews, Jalen Johnson and Onyeka Okongwu all out, while the Pacers are keeping eyes on Isaiah Jackson, Obi Toppin and Jalen Smith, who are all questionable. The Hawks have been struggling lately, and they haven't gotten much better despite getting some key players back from injury, so it's no surprise that the Pacers are heavy favorites at home in this one. It's tempting to take the handful of points here, but the Pacers are the better team right now, and I think they can get the big win at home to cap off the regular season.
