The Hawks are 10-22 ATS in their last 32 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rockets are 28-58 ATS in their last 86 home games and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Friday games. The over is 6-2 in Hawks last 8 road games. The over is 8-3 in Rockets last 11 home games. The Hawks are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Houston.

The Atlanta Hawks are the better team here and should be favored, but they’re also inconsistent and not a team I trust with big chalk. In fact, the Hawks are losing their last 5 games by an average of 2.2 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 0.2 points. The Houston Rockets have their issues as well, but they’re at home and were getting a bunch of free buckets. Give me the Rockets.
