Hawks – Warriors

Hawks Warriors betting preview

The Atlanta Hawks will host the Golden State Warriors on Monday night in the NBA.

The Hawks (5-18, 3-7 home) are coming after two losses against the Hornets and the Thunder, by 14 and 15 points respectively. Atlanta is just 5-18 so far this season but that was always going to be expected, as they are in rebuilding mode and probably have the least talent in the entire league – at least until the Cavs lost Kevin Love.

The Warriors (15-9, 4-7 away) are struggling lately. In fact, they are struggling big time for their standards. Since Curry got injured a few weeks ago, the Warriors amassed a disastrous record of 5 wins and 6 losses. Fortunately Curry returned for Golden State a couple of days ago in their previous clash, but they still lost in Detroit against the Pistons.

Team news: The Hawks will continue to miss Poythress, while Lin and Dedmon are doubtful, but are expected to play. The Warriors will continue to be without Green, Cousins and McKinnie. They are now also without starting center Jones, but he can easily be replaced by Looney and he`s really not a very notable loss.

The Warriors are not playing well lately, but the return of Steph Curry will surely get them back on track. Even if the Dubs still lost in Detroit with Curry over the weekend, it was his first match back, and the Dubs probably needed that one game to recapture their style and chemistry – after playing hero ball with Durant and Thompson for the past 2-3 weeks.

Green`s absence will continue to be felt, but having Curry back is so important for this team, as it has been proved over and over again, both with statistics and through the eye test. He`s the engine who gets the team going, he`s by far the most important player for GS and the only one who they can`t afford to miss if they want to win a championship.

Look for an improved Warriors side tonight, and they should also be highly motivated after the recent losses. They need to get back to winning ways quickly, so they will likely come out with intensity and firing.

The Hawks are losing their games by more than 10 points this season (even if at home they have been a bit better), and in fact they are the second worst team at covering the spread for now (9-14). They are no strangers to big margin defeats and their last 4 losses all came by 14 or more points.

Steph`s return, Golden State`s need to start winning again and Atlanta`s predisposition to lose by large margins all look like good indicators for a solid double digit victory for the visitors. As such, my tip will be the Warriors to cover the -10 (asian) handicap. Hopefully things will go according to logic and we won`t get burned by garbage time. Prediction: Atlanta Hawks – Golden State Warriors 102 – 122.
