The Hawks are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Monday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 6-2 in Timberwolves last 8 overall.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are dealing with injuries, as they’re still without KAT, and they could be without Gobert and Rivers. The Atlanta Hawks are healthy and continue to play their best ball at the moment, and this is a game they should win at home if they’re serious about playoff seeding and making a run. I’ll side with the Hawks.
