Warriors vs. Hawks Prediction & Pick

The Warriors are the best team at home this season, going 16-2 straight up at Chase Center. They've won five straight home games and enter tonight's action averaging a 117.2 PPG clip, winning by an average of 9.2 points.

There's just no reason to trust the Hawks considering how their only win over the last five games came against the lowly Detroit Pistons. Atlanta has also allowed 129-plus points in two of its last three games and could be in trouble again defensively with top center Clint Capela (calf) already being ruled out from tonight's festivities.

Since 2012, the Hawks have also lost eight of their last nine road games against the Warriors. With how poorly and inconsistent Atlanta has been lately, I don't see the Hawks' reversing their fortunes tonight. The Warriors will keep doing what they do best at Chase Center and that's winning.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 124 | Hawks: 115

Warriors vs. Hawks Best Bet

Kevon Looney enters this game with a projected rebound total of 9.5 and I'm backing the over. The veteran center has done well in the paint lately, averaging 9.0 rebounds in his last eight games and recording 32 total boards in his last three games alone.

The lack of Capela and his 11.9 RPG will make Looney's life a lot easier, as well. After all, the Hawks already allow the 13th-most rebounds to centers this season.

Having hit the over in each of his last two games, look for another double-digit rebounding performance from Looney.

Bet: Kevon Looney — Rebounds: Over 9.5 (-132)
