Hawks are Starting to Soar Again

As a result of an up and down campaign, it’s hard to gauge how just how good the Atlanta Hawks are. They have played significantly better as of late, however, winning four of their last five to move into fifth in the Eastern Conference at 35-28 SU. Mike Budenholzer’s crew face a team they’ve historically dominated Tuesday when they travel to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz. Atlanta has won eight of its last nine versus the Jazz.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS in their last five games with a closing total of 192.5 or more.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Jazz' last eight games with two days off between games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Hawks' last seven games after consecutive wins.

While the Hawks are trending upwards, it’s the opposite for the Jazz, specifically at the betting window. Utah has been one of the worst bets in the NBA over recent weeks, going an ugly 1-7 ATS in their previous eight contests. The Jazz opened as 1-point favorites for tonight’s tilt. That’s a trend that won’t appeal to Utah bettors, as the Western Conference squad has gone 1-9 SU and ATS over their last 10 when labeled as a favorite as 1.5 or less.

The Hawks have been the best defensive team in the Association since mid-January, but they’ve caught fire on the offensive end of the floor lately. Atlanta, who’s allowing a league-low 96.7 points per game since January 16, has shot 48.4 percent from the field and 41 percent from 3-point range over their last four.
