Why the Under Makes Sense Tonight in the Clippers-Hawks Matchup
January 26Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
Be sure to keep an eye on the Hawks injury report as Trae Young, Clint Capela, and Cam Reddish are all listed as questionable for tonight’s matchup against the Clippers. The Hawks may not even need their full complement of players, with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard ruled out due to COVID-19 protocols. Atlanta opened as 3.5 -point favorite, but that number has been bet up 1.5 points.
The under is also drawing significant attention as bettors have now pushed the total down to 222 after it opened at 224.5.
Here are some under trends to keep in mind for this matchup:
The total is 7-0 to the under in Atlanta’s last seven games after surrendering 100 or more points in their previous game.
The total is 7-0 to the under in Atlanta’s last seven games following a straight-up loss.
The total is 6-0 to the under in Atlanta’s last six games, where they fail to cover the spread.
While the Clippers will need to give maximum effort on the defensive end to have any chance in this game, points will be hard to come by against an Atlanta team ranked sixth in defensive efficiency (1.055) in the league. Los Angeles doesn’t have any players outside of Leonard and George, who averages more than 12 points per game.
