Cavs Have Great ATS Record vs Hawks

Kyrie Irving Jeff Teague

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks could very likely meet in the postseason, but before they get there they’ll face off at Philips Arena tonight. The Cavs have held a major edge in this series, going 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the Eastern Conference foes.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games.
  • The favored team is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Cavaliers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games.

In a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference finals, the Hawks will surely be zeroing in on LeBron James. James totalled 61 points, 17 assists and 17 rebounds in the first two games on the road in that postseason matchup. While hoops bettors who are betting on playoff contenders will worry about coaches resting players this late in the season, Cavs bench boss Tyronn Lue has stated he will not rest any of his starters tonight.

The Cavaliers, who are playing in the second half of a back-to-back after topping the lowly Brooklyn Nets on Thursday, have been a terrible play in this spot. Cleveland has dropped its last three on the second night of back-to-backs while failing to cover the spread in each tilt.

Atlanta has been doing its fair share of going OVER totals as of late. The Hawks have scored over half of the posted total in seven of their last 10 games.
