San Antonio vs. Atlanta,

Score: 112 - 114
Point Spread: -3½/-110 San Antonio
Play: San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are a small road favorite at Atlanta Hawks here on New Years Day, and I think this looks like a great spot to back the Spurs. They're 9-1 SU and ATS through their last 10 games, and they're coming off a 110-94 win against Portland on Friday. We can note that the Spurs are 6-0 ATS in their last six games following a straight up win of more than 10 points and 5-1 ATS in their last six Sunday games. Small forward Kawhi Leonard has missed the last two games due to a stomach bug but could be back in the lineup here.
The Hawks have won three of their past four games and they're coming off back-to-back home wins against New York and Detroit. They're however just 1-8 ATS in their last nine home games and 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 Sunday games.
The Spurs are 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings in Atlanta, and I expect a comfortable win for the visitors.
