The Atlanta Hawks are one of those teams in the NBA that you can’t quite figure out. They seem like they could just as easily miss the playoffs as they could surge into a half-decent seed.

Heading into the 2023 All-Star break, they are 29-30 and their win total with bet365 is 41.5. The OVER is favored with that firm at -130 (10/13) as they sit in the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.

Atlanta Hawks win-total (bet365): 41.5 (simplified perspective)

  • Current winning rate: 49.15%
  • The winning rate needed for OVER 41.5: 51.22%
  • Difference: -2.07%

The Atlanta Hawks head into the All-Star break with just one thing to note in their depth chart. John Collins is set as day-to-day.

You have to be thinking that the Atlanta Hawks will emerge from the week off with all their pieces in place. However, they had everything in place to start the season and good form didn’t last that long. They started the season 7-3 but ended up 13-13 a short time later. Their recent form has not really been anything worth noting either for this mediocre team.

Atlanta Hawks: Recent Form Alert

  • Formerly: 19 – 22 on January 12th, 2023
  • Currently: 29 – 30 (overall)
  • Recent form: 10 – 8 since January 12th, 2023
  • Recent winning rate: 55.56%
  • Atlanta Hawks’ recent form: 4.34% compared to what they need

What should bettors and fans expect from the Hawks? Coming out of the All-Star break, they have a four-game homestand against decent competition. With the way they win and lose without streaking all that much, you’d expect Atlanta to go 2-2. The main goal for this team is probably to get a top-eight seed.

But if you counted the games that Atlanta has against the easy teams for the balance of the season, there are only two: they play the Spurs and the Pistons in mid-March. Maybe Indiana is an easy win these days, so three games if you want to count that one. But Atlanta won’t see Charlotte again and they won’t see the Rockets again.

All-in-all, the Hawks, who lost to New York in their last game, are looking like a coin toss for their win total now. This is a team that bettors should be taking a pass on. The sportsbooks say 41.5 wins for a total and they have got the Hawks pegged.
