BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Warriors +2.5 (-110)
- Warriors vs Hawks Over/Under: 221.5 points
Golden State (36-33-4 ATS) is 6-3 in its last nine games and 15-4 SU in its last 19 matches against Atlanta. The total has gone UNDER in six of the Warriors’ last eight games and the Dubs are 13-7 in their last 20 contests against an opponent in the Eastern Conference.
The Hawks (30-43 ATS) are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games but they are 7-1 SU in their last eight outings at home. Atlanta has been alternating wins and losses in its last five games, a trend which it hopes to break as the hosts are coming off a 101-122 setback to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday.
The Warriors bounced back from a three-game losing streak after pulling off a 118-104 victory over the Miami Heat on Wednesday as they attempted to keep the No 3 seed away from the fourth-running Utah Jazz (45-28). All Star guard Stephen Curry remains out with a foot injury, thus Golden State will rely on the returning Klay Thompson, who is averaging 18.0 points per game, and Jordan Poole (17.6 ppg), who has started in Curry’s place.
Final Predictions and Picks:
- Spread — 111 Golden State Warriors – 109 Atlanta Hawks
- Over/Under — OVER 221.5 points
