Philadelphia 76ers vs. Atlanta Hawks

Can the Atlanta Hawks get the revenge they are looking for tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers? The Hawks are -2 point favorites over the 76ers.
Head to head, the Hawks are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings while the underdog is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The 76ers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, but just 8-23 ATS in their last 31 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games following a road trip of 7 or more days. The Hawks on the other hand are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, but just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Philadelphia has defeated Atlanta in seven of the last eight meetings and they have covered in seven of 10 also. For whatever reason, the 76ers just seem to have the Hawks number.
Despite what I just said, I like Atlanta in this one, no matter the line is. The Hawks have indeed lost three straight, with one of those games being against tonight’s opponent, however, this just means they are going to be all the more desperate to get the victory tonight. The Hawks have also covered in five of their last six road games.
While the 76ers have definitely improved over this past month, they are coming off a long road trip and are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 home games following a road trip of seven or more days. Not only that, they just played last night in Brooklyn and are just 8-23 ATS in their last 31 games playing on zero days rest.
Atlanta has had three days to rest and prepare for this game and I like them to get their revenge on what should be a tired 76ers team.

Pick
Atlanta Hawks -2 Philadelphia 76ers
