Individual Player Analysis

As Golden State travels to take on the Atlanta Hawks, the team will look once again to Klay Thompson as their primary scorer. Against the Hawks, Thompson will need to be on top of his game as Atlanta is allowing their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their average in 46.0% of their games, placing them in the top 10. On the other side, Trae Young leads the Hawks in scoring, averaging 28 points across his 65 games. Throughout the season, Young has outscored his season average in 48.0% of his outings. However, if he hopes to add to this total, Young will need to do so against a Warriors defense that has been tough on their opponent’s top scorers. So far, leading scores have surpassed their season average at a rate of just 46.43%. This figure is good for a rank of 10th in the league.

Matchup Analysis

The Hawks come into this game as the more efficient offensive team, averaging 112 points per 100 possessions. When playing as the superior offensive unit, Atlanta is winning at a rate of 63%.

Betting Trends Worth Noting

  • Hawks are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

Heading into this game, the Golden State Warriors are once again riding some momentum, as they are coming off an impressive win over the Miami Heat. The Warriors were able to take down the Eastern Conference’s top seed, even without several of their key players. On the other side, Atlanta appears to have a play-in tournament birth locked up as they are 5 games ahead of the Knicks for the 10th seed in the East. However, they still have the ability to catch both the Nets and Hornets, who are directly ahead of them in the standings. Given Golden State’s injuries, the Hawks are 2.5 point home favorites. Look for Atlanta to cover the spread. Did you know that you could be wagering on games (sides and totals) at -105 odds instead of -110? This may not sound like much to you, but it is HUGE!
