We are aware that 6 of the last 7 in this matchup have gone over the total including all 3 this season. However, the teams’ current play suggest a play on the under. The Hawks have failed to score in triple digits in 6 of their last 8. The injury to guard Kyle Korver is the main reason for the lack of scoring with Atlanta having a 1-4 O/U record in his absence. He is questionable to play again tonight and with the Wizards new found defense we’ll look to the under.
Take the UNDER 197.5.
