The Atlanta Hawks head to Charlotte on Monday to face off against the Bobcats.
The Charlotte Bobcats are currently 33-34 this season, and finally in Charlotte the fans are seeing some solid ball. The Bobcats are likely heading to the post season this year as the Bobcats are currently in seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Charlotte has been playing well lately, winning four straight heading into this meeting with the Hawks, with their latest win coming on Sunday night against the Bucks in Milwaukee 101-92.

The Atlanta Hawks started off this season very strong, but since the Hawks have struggled somewhat, and now Atlanta is fighting for their playoff lives. The Hawks are currently in the eight spot in the East, but the Hawks have just a three game advantage over the Knicks for the final playoff position. Atlanta has come back strong after that disastrous losing streak they were on in Late February early March, and since the Hawks have won three straight. Last time out, the Hawks defeated the Nuggets 97-92 on Saturday in Atlanta.
The Hawks are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games on Monday nights, but the Hawks are just 2-8 against the spread in their last ten games against the Southwest division. The Hawks are also 0-4 against the spread in their last four games off of just one day of rest.
The Bobcats are 6-0-1 against the spread in their last seven games against teams with a losing record, and the Bobcats are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall.
I know the Bobcats are coming off a travel day, but Charlotte has a hot hand right now, and the Bobcats are beating the teams they are supposed to. The Hawks do keep this one close, but the Bobcats look to have too much here on Monday night.
