Hawks are Going Streaking

The Atlanta Hawks are beginning to conjure up some of the magic of last season’s 60-win campaign and are winners of seven of their last eight heading into Sunday’s matchup with the New York Knicks. The Hawks are averaging 112.9 points in its last seven wins, including a 117-98 hammering of New York on Dec. 26.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games in January.
  • The Hawks are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games against the Knicks.
  • The Hawks are 11-0 ATS in their last 11 games on the road in January.

Meanwhile, the Knicks are trending in the other direction. Carmelo Anthony and company have dropped five out of their last six thanks largely in part due to ineffective fourth quarters. Perhaps the friendly confines of Madison Square Garden can cure what ails the Knicks, as each of New York’s previous four losses have come on the road.

Atlanta has taken the first two meetings of the season in this series by an average of 15 points. For trend seekers, totals bettors will be happy to know the OVER is 6-1 in the last seven clashes between the Eastern Conference foes.
