The Hawks are 21-8 ATS in their last 29 Monday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Thunder are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Atlanta and 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall.
The Hawks have been shaky as of late, while the Thunder are picking up steam and have their best players clicking at an elite level. I have to side with OKC and the small chalk, as its easily the better team and playing far better as well.
