The Atlanta Hawks and Sacramento Kings meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center.

The Atlanta Hawks look for a victory after splitting their last eight games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 110.2 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 117.5 points on 47.4 percent shooting. John Collins is averaging 19.5 points and 10 rebounds while Trae Young is averaging 16.4 points and 7.3 assists. Kent Bazemore is the third double-digit scorer and Jeremy Lin is dishing 3.7 assists. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Hawks have lost six of their last nine road games.

The Sacramento Kings could also use a win after splitting their last eight games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 115.1 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 20.2 points and 4.9 rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.6 points and 7.2 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic is the third double-digit scorer and Willie Cauley-Stein is grabbing 8.8 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 38.3 percent from beyond the arc and 70.9 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.5 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have won their last four home games.

The Hawks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 vs. NBA Pacific and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference. The Kings are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 24-9 ATS in their last 33 vs. Eastern Conference and 17-40-3 ATS in their last 60 games playing on 2 days rest. The Hawks are 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings and the favorite is 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The under is 10-0-1 in Kings last 11 overall. The over is 6-2 in Hawks last 8 overall.

The Sacramento Kings dropped 146 points on the Atlanta Hawks when these teams met back in November. The Hawks are playing better basketball as of late thanks to Collins and Young really starting to get their feet under them, but they're still a team being outscored by an average of 8.6 points on the road this season. The Sacramento Kings have issues of their own, especially when it comes to finishing games, but they're 16-8 ATS at home this season and 10-2 ATS as a favorite. If the Kings are going to make a push for the playoffs, they have to win games like this against bottom of the barrel teams. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Kings based on their strong trends at home.

Sacramento Kings -5.5
