The Atlanta Hawks are on the road to take on the Miami Heat Friday night. Below we will continue our NBA odds series as we hand out a Hawks-Heat prediction and pick. We will also let you know how to watch the game.

The Hawks are 17-23 this season, but they have won their last two games. However, they have lost their two games against the Heat this season. In those games, Trae Young is averaging 28.5 points per game to go along with 12.5 assists.

Why The Hawks Could Cover The Spread/Win

Atlanta is usually a better offensive team, but their last two games have been won on the defensive side of the floor. Atlanta has allowed 101.5 points per game in their last two games. That is the type of defense Atlanta needs to continue to play if they want to get to playoff form. If Atlanta can keep the Heat to a lower score, they will be able to win this game on the road.

Atlanta is normally a high-scoring team. They average the fourth-most points per game in the NBA at 121.0. Atlanta makes the sixth-most field goals per game, and seventh-most threes. They do not have an easy task against the Heat's defense, but if Atlanta gets hot, they are a dangerous team.

Why The Heat Could Cover The Spread/Win

Miami is one of the better defensive teams in the NBA. They allow the third-fewest points in the NBA at 110.9 points per game. The Heat love to slow down the pace of play, and they will have to do so in this game. Miami has been able to play great defense against the Hawks this season, as well. If Miami plays well defensively, they will win this game.

The Heat have held the Hawks to 113 points and 109 points this season. When Miami allows less than 115 points, they have a record of 21-8. The Heat do this often, and it could easily happen again in this game. If the Heat can hold the Hawks down the way they have been this season, they will win this game.

Final Hawks-Heat Prediction & Pick

Atlanta has been underperforming this season. The Heat have been able to handle the Hawks with ease it seems. For this reason, I am going to take the Heat to win this game straight up.
