The Atlanta Hawks have dominated the number against the Denver Nuggets as of recent as they have covered the spread in 7 of their last 8 meetings. The Atlanta Hawks are a young team, but they are extremely talented, especially 2nd-year guard Trae Young as he is averaging 26.3 PPG and 8.4 APG. Denver is playing good basketball as of recent, but their one downfall has been their scoring outputs as they rank 27th in points scored. Atlanta will have to control Nikola Jokic which is a hefty task for a team missing their star forward, but they have enough scoring to keep this game close. Final Score Prediction, Denver Nuggets win but fail to cover ATS 112-104.
