Lakers won both meetings against the Hawks last season. At home by 122-101 and on the road 96-101. Under is 3-1 in their last 4 meetings and Hawks are 3-1 ATS in that span. They are 5-4 at home, while Lakers are 11-2 on the road. Hawks are better offensively (113.2 to 112 ppg), while Lakers have the second-best defense in the NBA (104.3 to 112 ppg).

I’m going to pick under -219.5 today. This will be Lakers’ seventh straight road game and Davis is questionable, so it is certain that they will slow down the pace.
