The Atlanta Hawks take on the Sacramento Kings tonight at the Sleep Train Arena.

Meanwhile, the Kings will also be aiming for a fourth straight win after making light work of the Lakers in a 112-93 rout at the Staples Center last night. DeMarcus Cousins dominated the paint with a game-high 36 points and 16 rebounds, Rudy Gay added 16 points while Rajon Rondo had 11 points and 17 assists in the easy win to improve to 18-23 overall and 8-12 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Hawks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game, while the Kings are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a win.
Head to head, the Hawks are 14-3 ATS in the last 17 meetings overall and a perfect 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings in Sacramento.
I was actually leaning towards the Kings to win at home in this one, but I can't ignore how heavily one-sided the ATS trends are in favor of the Hawks. Take Atlanta to win their fourth straight overall and continue their dominance over the Kings.
