Pick ATS: Hawks -10

The Pacers enter tonight on a three-game losing skid after falling 98-85 to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. Indiana is in a state of flux as they’ve already traded away Caris LeVert and could look to move Sabonis before Thursday afternoon’s trade deadline.

Indiana is also 1-4 ATS in their last five games, but 2-1 ATS when the spread was between +9 and +12. The Pacers have also thrived as the underdog this season, but it is hard to see them competing with this Hawks team.

As for Atlanta, they are looking to snap their two-game losing streak after they lost 103-94 to the Dallas Mavericks over the weekend. The Hawks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games and 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games. Nate McMillian’s crew is also 3-1 ATS when they are favored by 10 points or more.
