ATLANTA HAWKS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS PREDICTIONS

After finishing fifth in the East with a record of 41-31 SU last year, Atlanta stumbled out to a surprisingly slow start to this season, as the Hawks opened with a frustrating 17-25 SU and 15-27 ATS skid – despite getting tagged as favorites in 25 of those matchups.

The Hawks dominated the back-half of January though, considering Atlanta enters Sunday’s contest riding a solid 8-2 SU and ATS run – while scoring roughly 117 PPG and allowing just 110 PPG across that span.

On the other hand, Dallas also posted a mediocre start to the season, as the Mavericks kicked things off with a lackluster 16-18 SU and 13-21 ATS skid – with ten of those losses coming by seven points or more.

The Mavericks have played solid basketball as of late though, considering Dallas enters Sunday boasting records of 14-5 SU and 11-8 ATS across their last 19 games – while surrendering just 100.8 PPG to opponents across that timeframe.

I’ll back Atlanta here, as the Mavericks are just 6-4 SU and 4-6 ATS across their last ten games, while averaging just 109.6 PPG offensively during that span – setting the stage for a tough home matchup against a Hawks squad that’s averaging 117.4 PPG across their latest 8-2 SU run.

ATLANTA HAWKS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 25-27
  • ATS: 23-29
  • O/U: 28-24

The Hawks entered this season with relatively high expectations after last year’s impressive playoff run, as Atlanta dominated the Knicks in a five-game first-round set, and then stunned the top-seeded Sixers in the second – before inevitably falling short against the Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Atlanta finally began to live up to those lofty expectations in the waning days of January though, considering the Hawks enter Sunday’s matchup following wins in seven of eight of their last ten games – while generating 120+ PTS offensively in five of those matchups (117 PPG).

DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 30-23
  • ATS: 27-26
  • O/U: 18-34-1

After a disappointing first-round exit from last year’s playoffs, Dallas kept that same ball rolling with another slow start to this season, as the Mavericks opened with a lackluster 16-18 and 13-21 ATS skid – while getting tagged as favorites in five of those SU losses.

The Mavericks have turned things around with excellent defense as of late though, considering Dallas enters Sunday riding a sturdy 14-5 SU run – while surrendering less than 100 PTS in ten of those contests (101 PPG).

The Mavericks are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 matchups against Atlanta. (AP)

ATLANTA HAWKS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Mavericks swept a two-game regular-season set against Atlanta last year, with both contests soaring over the total at a lofty average of 236.5 PPG. The most recent matchup between these teams took place back on opening night of this season though, which resulted in a relatively low-scoring victory for the Hawks (113-87).

KEY PLAYERS TO WATCH

  • ATL: Trae Young - PG (27.9 PPG, 4 REB, 9.3 AST)
  • ATL: John Collins - PF (16.9 PPG, 7.9 REB, 1.1 BLK)
  • DAL: Luka Doncic - PG (26.2 PPG, 8.9 REB, 9.1 AST)
  • DAL: Jalen Brunson - SG (15.9 PPG, 3.8 REB, 5.5 AST)

ATLANTA HAWKS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING CONCLUSION

After coming from behind to beat the Sixers on Friday night (W, 108-97), the Mavericks enter Sunday’s contest as narrow home favorites over the visiting Hawks – marking the fourth straight game Atlanta has been an underdog in.

I’ll back Atlanta here, as the Hawks are 8-2 SU and ATS across their last ten games, while averaging 117.4 PPG offensively during that timeframe – likely presenting a steep uphill battle for a Mavericks squad that’s scored 108 PTS or less in eight of their last ten matchups (109.6 PPG).

ATLANTA HAWKS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING TRENDS

  • The Hawks are 8-2 ATS in their last ten games.
  • The Mavericks are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 matchups against Atlanta.
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of the last 12 Hawks' games.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the last six Mavericks' games.
