The Warriors are 42-18-1 ATS in their last 61 Friday games and 16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 road games. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 4-0-1 in Warriors last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Hawks last 5 overall. The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta.
I’m not running to the window to lay chalk with the Atlanta Hawks, but the Warriors still can’t win on the road, and they’re now losing on the road by an average of 7.3 points. It’s awful and is showing no signs of turning around. The Hawks need wins to better their position for playoff / play-in seeding. It’s Hawks or pass, as the Warriors can’t be trusted outside of San Francisco.
