The Hawks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 Sunday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Clippers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 5-1 in Hawks last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Clippers last 4 Sunday games. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

The Los Angeles Clippers are a mess without their best players on the floor, and they’re losing their last five games by an average of six points. However, let’s not act like the Hawks are playing any better, as they have roster issues of their own, and they lose on the road by an average of 2.5 points while not playing a lick of defense. I’m not backing the Hawks as a favorite on the road against anybody. It’s the Clippers and the points or pass for me.
