Trae Young is averaging 26.7 points and 3 rebounds, while Dejounte Murray is averaging 21 points and 5.4 rebounds.

The Hawks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The Wizards are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The over is 5-2 in Hawks last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Wizards last 6 overall. The Hawks are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Washington and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
When these teams played a couple of days ago, the game came down to the wire and was decided by two points. I’d assume the home team can get the revenge here and even things up. The Atlanta Hawks still lose on the road by an average of 1.7 points. The Wizards can’t afford to blow games like this at home in terms of the standings. Give me the bucket.
