The San Antonio Spurs have provided value in the underdog role in the past, but they've been struggling without Aldridge and are losing their last five games by an average of 8.2 points while shooting 41.4 percent from the field. The Atlanta Hawks have injuries of their own and aren't playing much better, but they do win by an average of 6.8 points in the favorite role. The Hawks also showed progress against the Mavericks their last time out. Don't love it, but I'll lay the small chalk with the Hawks.
