The Atlanta Hawks will continue their West Coast trip, as they head to Sacramento to take on the Kings on Wednesday, January 5th.
The tip-off is set for 10:00 ET from Golden 1 Center.
Atlanta started off as a 1 point dog and now they are a 1.5 point favorite. The total has gone from 229.5 to 232.
The Hawks have not played well this year. They can still improve their play, but it does not look all that promising for them at the moment.
They have lost three of their last four games. Losing to Sacramento on Wednesday would be a bad look for them.
Going into this season, a lot of people thought they would be better than this. Simply put, the way they have played has been unacceptable.
Given the talent that is on this roster, their record should be a lot better. There is no way that the Hawks should be four games below .500.
Atlanta lost to the Portland Trail Blazers Monday by a score of 136-131. Those are the kinds of losses that just cannot happen if you want to be considered a very good team.
In the loss at Portland, Trae Young did go off, as he recorded 56 points and 14 assists. Besides him, nobody else really stepped up in that game, which is a problem for this team.
It is another year and the Kings are not playing all that well. I guess that should not come as a surprise to me.
Sacramento is in 10th place in the Western Conference with a record of 16-23. Unless they get much better, they will hover right around that seed for the whole year.
Listen, I am not going to sit here and say they are the most talented team in the league, but they have some players. Something is going on in their locker room that we are unaware of.
The Kings dropped to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday by a score of 122-114. It was a game they could have won, but they just did not execute well enough down the stretch to get the win.
De’Aron Fox was the leading scorer for this bunch in their last game with 30 points and 6 assists. Also, Buddy Hield tacked on 26 points and 5 boards.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.
- The Hawks are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
- The Kings are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games as the underdog.
- The total has gone over in 4 of Sacramento’s last 6 games.
Atlanta Hawks vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Analysis:
I want to see how the Kings play in this game on the second night of a back-to-back. They have not always been the best in those spots this year and it would not shock me if that continues on Wednesday night.
As of late, the Hawks have been playing very bad and they need to get on back on track. This game with Sacramento is a good opportunity for them to do so.
If you are Atlanta, these are games you need to win. I expect them to play with more urgency in this ball game.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hawks ATS
I know it may seem hard to have confidence in the Hawks now, but I like them in this spot. They are the more desperate team and I think that they will play that way.
In this spot, I just do not trust the Kings in the second night of a back-to-back. It would not shock me if they came out flat in this game.
