Hawks are Soaring for Bettors

The Atlanta Hawks are clicking at the right time, and their bettors are laughing all the way to the bank as a result. Atlanta is a sizzling 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games and will be looking to push that number to double-digits when they welcome the Houston Rockets to town in Saturday’s NBA action.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.
  • The Rockets are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta.
  • The underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between the Hawks and Rockets.

The Rockets have been a hard team to put a finger on all season, but they have been extremely productive in one department: going OVER on the road. Houston is a fantastic 17-4 O/U in their past 21 away from the Lone Star State. The OVER is also 5-1 in the last six meetings between the squads. The total for tonight’s game opened at 213.

Atlanta (40-29 SU) is finding ways to win big games. A traditionally strong regular season team, the Hawks overcame a 19 point deficit in the last matchup between the clubs on December 29. The Hawks left Houston with a stunning 121-115 victory.

Hawks’ starting small forward Kent Bazemore, who was forced to sit out of Thursday’s 116-98 triumph over Denver, is listed as probable for the contest due to a bone bruise. Backup Tim Hardaway Jr. made hist first start of the season in Bazemore’s place and performed admirably, pouring in 21 points.
