1 unit on Atlanta -2 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: LOSS
Young Atlanta is improving at 7-8 SU/8-6-1 ATS the last 15 games, beating the 76ers (127-117) as a +6 dog, winning at Minnesota (127-120) as a +4.5 underdog, a 140-135 victory over the Knicks, and a 121-120 victory at San Antonio as a +9 dog. Atlanta made moves to address its interior and it's paying off, bringing in centers Clint Capela and Dewayne Dedmon. The Cleveland Cavaliers are heading in the opposite direction, on a 1-13 SU, 5-9 ATS run, ranked #26 in points surrendered, #27 at defending beyond the arc, and dead last in field goal defense. Cleveland comes off a 133-92 home loss to the Clippers that marked the worst home loss in franchise history. And the Hawks have covered five of the last seven meetings in this building. Play Atlanta.
