The Spurs are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games, 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Hawks are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The San Antonio Spurs have put together some nice wins this week, but they now go on the road where they've lost eight of their last 10 games and are losing by an average of 5.2 points. It's been a mess for the Spurs on the road to say the least. With that said, we have to note that a lot of the Spurs recent road struggles came when they were on the road for like three weeks straight when you throw in the all-star break. We'll see if they can turn things around here. The Atlanta Hawks are covering spreads lately with an explosion of offense, but they're also just 11-19 ATS at home and there's a chance they're without John Collins. This is a game the Spurs should win comfortably if they bring the same energy to Atlanta they brought their last few games.
