Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks prediction

Even with a questionable Kyrie, the Dallas Mavericks enter this game as the healthier, better team. The Atlanta Hawks are still without Trae Young, and they could be without Clint Capela. Also, as I’ve mentioned many times this season, the Hawks are the worst covering team in the NBA with an 11-33 ATS record. The Hawks are covering just 25 percent of their games, and that’s 13.1 percent lower than the second worst covering team in the Suns. I’ll keep fading the Hawks. Give me the Mavs and the small chalk.
