Hawks vs. Spurs 2023 NBA Odds and Preview – November 30th

By Hank Blaine

The Atlanta Hawks pay a visit to the San Antonio Spurs at the Frost Bank Center on Thursday night. San Antonio’s performance dipped since the season’s early weeks. They are now on the verge of a 13th-straight loss. The Spurs are also coming off a 132-120 loss to the Nuggets. Meanwhile, the Hawks suffered a pair of losses against the Celtics and the Cavs. Atlanta needs to put their road presence. They have a respectable 5-4 record in uncharted territory, which should be enough to put the Spurs under pressure. With that, let’s go over the finer details of the matchup including the latest team stats, betting odds, trends, and predictions.

Why Bet on the Atlanta Hawks?

The Hawks will try to rebound from a 23-point loss to the Cavs. It was a tough night for the Hawks despite having all five starters log double-digit figures. Trae Young facilitated plays and led the team with 10 assists on top of 13 points. However, the Young and Dejounte Murray duo only had 13 points each. De’Andre Hunter topped the Hawks scoreboard with 18 points, four rebounds, and two assists. Atlanta finished the night shooting a mere 34.7% from the field and 29.5% from deep.

Atlanta possesses incredible offensive figures since the season opener. They average 122.5 points (second) per game on 47.2% shooting (13th). Their shooting figures highlight a 54.3% two-point (12th) and 36.8% three-point (11th) percentages, topped with a fifth-best free-throw percentage at 82.8%. Furthermore, the lineup exhibits quick transitions with a league-best record of 17.5 fastbreak points per game.

Defense is where this team falls short. The Hawks limit opponents to 121.5 points (26th) points per game on 49.4% shooting (27th). They also lack rebounding presence with only 52.3 total rebounds (19th) per game.

The visitors have three players on the injury list leading up to Thursday’s clash. Jalen Johnson is out for a few more weeks since sustaining a left distal radius fracture. Mouhamed Gueye (lower back) and Kobe Bufkin (thumb fracture) are also out of the lineup indefinitely.

Why Bet on the San Antonio Spurs?

San Antonio needs a breather from their double-digit loss streak. The number is at 12, and the Hawks threaten to extend the run as they invade the Frost Bank Center. Gregg Popovich and his crew fly back from a two-game road run and a loss to Denver. The Spurs finished their last contest shooting 45.2% from the field and 37.8% from deep. Victor Wembanyama topped the scoreboard with 22 points, 11 boards, and two assists, Malaki Branham had 15, two, and three, while Devin Vassell recorded 19 points, three assists, and a rebound off the bench.

The team’s overall statistics won’t blow anyone away. They average 110.5 points (24th) points per game on 45.5% shooting (24th). Defensively, the Spurs limit competitors to 123.4 points (28th) points per game on a league-worst 49.9% opponent shooting. However, knowing that Coach Pop is the brains behind this team, ball rotation remains at the top of their game at 29.0 assists (second) per game.

Spurs starters Jeremy Sochan and Rookie of the Year favorite Victor Wembanyama are on the injury list. The forward is probable for Thursday night following a knee injury. Meanwhile, Wemby is day-to-day due to right high hip tightness.

Hawks vs. Spurs Expert Betting Prediction

The Hawks built momentum before getting stopped in their tracks by the Celtics and the Cavs. Meanwhile, the Spurs continue a downward spiral with multiple losses added to their record. You can argue the point that the visitors are going to take this one no contest, but the Spurs at home are expected to put up a fight. Covering the sizable spread should be doable for the hosts as well. San Antonio holds a decent home record versus the Hawks. They won seven of their last ten home meetings against the Southeast Division franchise. Ultimately, this game can go down the wire if the Spurs can turn things around and maintain consistency on both ends of the court.
