BETTING TRENDS

Portland is 0-6 ATS in its last 6 games.

The UNDER has cashed in 4 of the Trail Blazers last 5

Atlanta is 1-5 ATS in its last 6

The UNDER has cashed in 4 of the Hawks last 6

Prediction

Trae Young and the Haws are coming from one of their best games in the season and they'll be facing a Blazers team with a very poor defense who has allowed 120.5 ppg in their last 10 games. The Hawks have struggled to cover the spread lately but this should be an easy win for them.
