With an 11-3 record both against the spread and straight up, good enough for tops in the Eastern Conference, Atlanta has a lot to be thankful for.

In the last nine games in which the Hawks are favored by four points or less, they are 7-2 ATS and have taken six Overs in a row with the same spread range.

Atlanta is 7-1 ATS in its last eight home games, and in that time has cashed on the Over six times.
