Atlanta Hawks vs Oklahoma City Thunder Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Thursday, March 18th 2021, at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Atlanta Hawks vs Oklahoma City Thunder Preview

After inking a three-year, $61.5m deal to join Atlanta, experienced PF Danilo Gallinari produced his second-best scoring display of the campaign so far, leading them to a 119-107 win vs. the lowly Houston Rockets overnight. 

It's fair to say the 32-year-old has struggled, among others, in a Hawks team packed with multiple new acquisitions this season. However, he has stepped up his game in recent weeks and had 29 points on 10-of-14 shooting, alongside six rebounds, a block and steal in 34 minutes last time out.

John Collins had a double-double (20 pts, 10 rebs) alongside a game-high four blocks, while Trae Young had 14 assists - his highest personal tally since beating the Nuggets on Feb. 22. What next? A depleted Thunder team. 

On paper, they shouldn't have any troubles here and will be motivated to replicate the Chicago Bulls' recent success – helped by Zach LaVine's 40-point effort - against a Western Conference team with notable absences. 

Atlanta Hawks vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Tips 

ESPN's BPI is comfortably backing the Hawks to improve their 10-9 home record and return to .500 - unsurprising when you consider OKC are understaffed right now and face an in-form team here. 

Atlanta has won six successive games - their best streak of the campaign - and have a tough seven-game Western Conference tour on the road after this matchup, featuring both LA teams and Denver before March is concluded. When combining all those factors, I'm predicting they do enough to make it seven straight.
