The Sacramento Kings hit the road for a matchup with the Atlanta Hawks.  The Kings are (2-6) on the season and are coming off a 124-120 loss on the road to the Toronto Raptors.  The Hawks are (3-4) thus far and have lost 4 of 5.  The Hawks lost to the Bulls 113-93 last time out.

The Kings were led in scoring by Harrison Barnes with 26 points in the loss to the Raptors.  Barnes was 7 of 15 from the floor and 8 of 10 from the foul line.  De'Aaron Fox added a double-double in the game, scoring 17 points and giving out 10 helpers.  Buddy Hield contributed 21 points and 8 rebounds on the night.  The Kings trailed by 15 points and attempted to make a comeback but fell just short.  The Kings out rebounded the Raptors 50 to 48.  The Kings were 20 of 44 from 3 point range (45.5%). 

In the loss to the Bulls, Hawks point guard Tre Young was held in check, going 3 of 12 from the from the floor and 0 of 8 from 3 point range, totaling just 9 points.  Jabari Parker led the Atlanta offense, netting 18 points and grabbing 5 rebounds.  The Hawks struggled from 3 point range, shooting just 20% (6 of 30) for the game.  The Hawks committed 24 turnovers in the game.  The Hawks were dominated in fast break points, 18 to 6.

Recent Betting Trends:

Kings are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Friday games.

Kings are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 vs. the Southeast. 

The under is 6-2 in the Kings last 8 road games.

Hawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Pacific.

Hawks are 21-10 ATS in their last 31 games overall.

The under is 7-0 in Hawks last 7 overall.

The home team has controlled this series against the spread, going 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.  The Kings are 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 meetings in Atlanta.  The Hawks have been struggling, losing 4 of their last 5 games and have scored less then 100 points in 3 of those games.  I think the Hawks are still the better team, even with their struggles.  I can't see Tre Young getting shut down two games in a row.  Final score prediction, Hawks win and cover, 107-102.

ATL +2.5
