The young Cleveland Cavaliers are showing some spunk, on a 4-2 SU/5-1 ATS run winning four times as an underdog. Kevin Love and Larry Nance, Jr. are back in the lineup, returning Friday from lengthy absences. Cleveland is rested for this one while the Atlanta Hawks are playing their eighth back-to-back game of the season. Atlanta is 13-24 ATS after a non-conference game, plus 18-30 ATS after a game where they covered the spread. The Cavs have beaten the Hawks twice this season, 96-91 at Atlanta in January and 112-111 at home last month when they shot 52.6% from the field. The Cavaliers have covered six straight against the Hawks and are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Atlanta. Play Cleveland.
