Atlanta Hawks Betting Outlook
- Championship Odds: +4000
- Conference Odds: +1600
- Division Odds: +150
The Hawks still have a young side, but after a couple of years together, it’s time to produce the goods in the playoffs.
Having the likes of Young, Clint Capela and John Collins is a big boost, especially for a team that has steadily built to be a premier Eastern Conference outfit.
There hasn’t been as much betting confidence as there was last season, but losing to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Conference Finals is something they can hang their hats on. Improvement is to come, so bettors are getting excellent value odds for the Hawks to win the Southeast Division in consecutive years.

Atlanta Hawks Team Leaders
Young averaged 25.3 points and 9.4 assists per game last season, which led the team in both categories. Young has taken the leadership role.
Capela is another player who can lead from the front. He might not be the most vocal player for the Hawks, but he’s a rebounding machine. He also adds around 15 points a game.
Despite being oustded by the Bucks, there were only positives to take from Atlanta’s 2020-21 season.
The Bucks won the last two games after the series was tied at 2-2, but due to the youth on the Hawks’ roster, it’s all a part of the learning process.
They finished with a 41-31 record, which was good enough for fifth in the Eastern Conference. Winning at home was a big key to their success, going 25-11 at home and 16-20 on the road.
Betting on the Hawks was profitable for NBA bettors. They went 49-40-1 against the spread, which returned a +1.5 unit profit. They ranked seventh behind the likes of New York and Phoenix for covering the spread.
Including the playoffs, Atlanta went 51-39, which also returned a +1.5 unit profit. It was the fourth-winningest team in the Eastern Conference behind Philadelphia, Brooklyn and NBA champions Milwaukee.

Nate McMillan was named Atlanta’s interim head coach in March 2021, following the sacking of Lloyd Pierce midway through their season.
Since taking over, McMillan went 27-11 and led the Hawks to a Conference Finals appearance with the Bucks.
Drafted as an NBA player in 1986, McMillan has had a bigger impact as a coach. He started with the Seattle Supersonics before heading to the Portland Trail Blazers in 2005, where he stayed until 2012.
The Hawks’ players rose for McMillan, and went on an eight-game winning streak following his appointment as “interim” head coach. The Hawks ended a four-year playoff drought under the guidance of McMillan, who is now the permanent coach.
