The Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers meet Monday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Atlanta Hawks look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 110.5 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allowing 118.8 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 30.1 points and 9.2 assists while John Collins is averaging 20.4 points and 10.1 rebounds. Kevin Huerter is the third double-digit scorer and De'Andre Hunter is grabbing four rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Hawks have lost six of their last seven road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 108.5 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 106.4 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 23.3 points and 12 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19.1 points and 6.8 rebounds. Ben Simmons is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is dishing 3.2 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.9 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t lost a home game since December 20.
The Hawks are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Philadelphia and 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks are playing well at home as of late, but they're still 10-20 against the spread on the road where they lose by an average of 13.3 points and allow 48.6 percent shooting from the field. The Philadelphia 76ers are absolute garbage on the road, but they win at home by an average of 10 points and haven't lost a home game in two months. Given the home and road splits of both teams, I'll lay the reasonable number with the 76ers at home.
