Score: 102 - 103
Point Spread: +7½/-105 Cleveland
4* NBA BLOCKBUSTER ATS BLOWOUT: Cavaliers +7.5
The Cavaliers won't have to look hard for motivation against Atlanta. The Hawks came into Cleveland and beat up on the Cavs 103-87 this past Sunday. It appears the loss got Cleveland's attention. The Cavaliers went out the next night and won 105-100 at New Jersey.
Atlanta isn't going to be interested in playing a team they just beat by 16-points on the road, plus they beat Cleveland by 27-points at home back on Jan. 21. I look for the Hawks to come out sluggish, which should allow the Cavs to jump out to an early lead.
The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog, while the Hawks are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5. BET CLEVELAND!
