Doc’s Monday Hawks/Cavs Game 1 10* Sure Shot
Atlanta vs. Cleveland,
05/02/2016 19:00 EDT,
Score: 93 - 104
Point Spread: +8/-110 Atlanta
Loved the way the Hawks played in their series against Boston. If not for a loss in OT the series would have been over much quicker and they recorded blowouts in the last two games of the series. Cleveland has been one of the most overhyped teams in the NBA this season and even though the east has overall been getting better year to year it is still not as good as the west and Cleveland is not on par with the best teams in the west but the oddsmakers line them like they are. That is part of the reason they are so poor against the number (39-44-3 ATS on the season). The Spurs are laying the same line against OKC tonight but they are a much better team and one of the better ATS teams in the league. Atlanta does great in this pointspread range and they are 15-6 ATS when getting between 5.0 and 7.5 points, and we expect a real close game here as the Cavs have had too much time off while Atlanta has major momentum on their side right now.
