BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Atlanta are 3-10 SU in their last 13 games against LA Lakers.

Atlanta are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games on the road.

Atlanta are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against LA Lakers.

LA Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 13 of LA Lakers' last 19 games.

LA Lakers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

LA Lakers are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Hawks have been up and down this season and are struggling on the road allowing 118 points away from home. The Lakers have won 3 games in a row and will have Lebron back in the court for this game. They already beat the Hawks this season but DeAndre Hunter wasn't available for the Hawks on that game so I expect a much closer game this time but they play is the over as both teams are allowing over 116 points per game.
