Full blown trap because Golden State in back-to-back from a win versus Miami?? Or because Atlanta is playing better at home in their recent games?

Seems like a trap but Golden State is hot and Atlanta aint the same team without Horford. GS wins

The under attract my attention as well. Mark Jackson's squad is quiet capable to turn to their defense. Golden State is 2nd best team in the league in number of games to hold their opponents under 40% shooting from the field. Only Indiana has more games than Golden State. I think that Golden States DEFENSE is underrated since everyone is just talking about 'the splash brothers'. I think I don't have to mention their frontcourt duo with Lee and Bogut.

But what concerns me here is that Golden State was red-hot in shooting the ball yesterday and that may carry into todays game.
Nontheless I am favoring the under 206.5.

See that the movement is in favor of Golden State and the over. From 1.5 to 3 in ATS.

I don't get this letdown thing that you mention...If there's gonna be any kind of a letdown in this game I see it coming from Paul Millsap...Al Horford IS the Hawks' big man..Him being out for the season puts a LOT of pressure on both the O and the D for Atlanta...Pressure can be funny stuff over time...Only thing standing in the way of the Warriors' machine here is bench points..GS will MURDER the Hawks on the boards and in the paint...In my opinion a GS letdown would only happen when they're at home vs a sub 500 team that isn't playing in front of their home crowd..

I know I'm always sticking my neck out saying stuff like this but I'm gonna side with GS on this one as they grind the Hawks down to cover a thin spread...They get good production from everywhere..GL

Golden st is a away better team here and there young enough to extend this streak in the east with authority. 

However back to backs are always a ill scary to cover spreads so with that being said my play is

In which way you see the comment about Golden State's defensive shooting at mis leading information?? Just look it up and you will find that Golden State is one of the top ranked defense,right behind Indiana, in the category when it comes to number of games to hold opponents below 40 % shooting from the field.

Just stated that the total was moving upward; was still on the under  206.5. That is how I saw it.

so whats the problem?? you picked ATL +3, correct pick^^
