The Atlanta Hawks and the Chicago Bulls duke it out at the United Center on Tuesday night.

The Atlanta Hawks have been in decent shape as they’ve split their last 10 games and they will be eager to get something going after outlasting the Mavericks in a 132-130 overtime home win on Sunday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 25 points, seven rebounds and four assists, Trae Young added 24 points with 12 assists while John Collins chipped in with 18 points and 10 rebounds. As a team, the Hawks shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 35 from the 3-point line as they squandered multiple leads in the fourth quarter, before they made up for it and held the Mavericks to just seven points in overtime to steal the game in a tight finish.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have quietly been of the hottest teams in the league as they’ve won nine of their last 13 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after blowing past the Grizzlies in a 128-107 win on Sunday. Zach LaVine led the way with 36 points and nine assists, DeMar DeRozan added 31 points with seven assists while Coby White chipped in with 19 points, six rebounds and four assists off the bench. As a team, the Bulls shot 53 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the 3-point line as they got off to a poor start and trailed by as many as 23 points, before they flipped the game on its head with 75 points in the second half to pull off one of their best wins of the season.

Looking at the betting trends, the Hawks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. The Bulls are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Chicago, the Hawks are 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and the Hawks are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Chicago.

The Hawks have ruled out De’Andre Hunter and they are keeping an eye on Trae Young who is questionable, while the Bulls should have Alex Caruso and Javonte Green returning from injury. The Hawks have been unable to build any sustained run all season and I think that trend continues in this one as the Bulls have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league. The Hawks are only 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Chicago, so I’ll back the Bulls to stay hot with another win and cover at home over this Hawks team who could be missing Young.
