San Antonio Spurs vs Atlanta Hawks 11/05/2019 – The San Antonio Spurs (4-2) will try to bounce back from a 96-103 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, as DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge visit State Farm Arena to face the Atlanta Hawks (2-3).

San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs have suffered their first two losses this season against the two Los Angeles teams: the Clippers and now the Lakers. Dejounte Murray recorded 18 points and 11 rebounds, while Rudy Gay chipped in with 16 points off the bench in a losing cause against the Lakers. Once again, San Antonio went cold from beyond the arc as they just shot 6-for-25 from that range.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (20.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.2 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (16.5 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 2.0 APG), Bryn Forbes (14.2 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 1.3 APG)
Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Hawks’ promising start to this season was dampened by an ankle injury to main gunner Trae Young. After pushing the Sixers to the limit, the Trae-less Hawks dropped back-to-back games against the Miami Heat last week. Fortunately for Atlanta, the sprained ankle wasn’t that serious and there’s a good chance Young could suit up against the Spurs on Tuesday.
Players to Watch: Trae Young (26.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 7.2 APG), John Collins (17.0 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 1.6 APG), Jabari Parker (13.8 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 1.0 APG)

San Antonio Spurs vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks
The Spurs opened in NBA betting lines as -152 favorites, but that figure will change once Young finally gets a clean bill of health to play for this game.
Moneyline: The Spurs will take the W, with or without Trae Young on the floor. San Antonio defeated the Hawks twice in their last three head-to-head meetings, including a 117-111 win last April 2.
ATS: The Spurs will have a -3.5 points handicap in this game. This match could feature several lead changes and perhaps a tight ball game down the stretch, but the Spurs will nevertheless bag the victory by at least five points.
TOTALs: This game will go over the O/U Total (224 points). San Antonio is one of the best scoring teams at 116 points, while the Hawks should return to a high-scoring team once again if they can have Trae Young on the floor.
Score Prediction: 124-118 Spurs
