After getting blown off the court by the Warriors in San Francisco, the Hawks are set to jet off to Utah where they’ll face the formidable Jazz less than 24 hours later!
Hawks are in dire straights at the minute, the young squad has lost five of their last six outings, and are 1-6 on the road this season.
These two sides met in Atlanta last week, the Jazz rinsed them by 18 points on that occasion, with Jordan Clarkson dropping 30 off the bench!
Atlanta has failed to cover the line in all FOUR games as away underdogs this season, and both the games they’ve played coming off the back of zero rest days.
Meanwhile, the Jazz has covered the line 6-4 as the favourite and 2-0 with a rest advantage.
I’m backing another blowout victory for the Jazz here, with the Hawks just looking like a G-League outfit on the road.
Portland head to LA looking to extend their winning streak to three straight games.
Standing in their way are the Clippers, who are out to extend their own run to five consecutive victories.
These two sides have already met twice across the first ten games of the season (1-1), with the home side winning both contests comfortably.
On that note, the Trail Blazers are yet to claim a win on their travels (0-4), while failing to cover the line on each of those matches.
Until Dame finds his range again, I’m happy to continue to back against Portland at the line, especially while PG13 is posting up monster numbers.
