The Mavericks are 21-7-2 ATS in their last 30 Saturday games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games as a road favorite. The Hawks are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The over is 6-0 in Mavericks last 6 overall. The over is 11-1 in Hawks last 12 home games. The Mavericks are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta and 2-10 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Dallas Mavericks have played their best basketball on the road, but they're on the end of a back to back and are no strangers to questionable performances. The Atlanta Hawks have won five of their last six home games and are 16-10-1 ATS at home. The Mavs should win this contest, but the Hawks are playing well enough at home and have enough offense to hang around. Give me the points.
