Hawks vs Cavaliers Prediction & Pick
Even though both teams have momentum on their side, there's a reason to be cautious about the Cavaliers. Despite picking up a win in its last outing, Cleveland only shot 36.7% from the field and 20.0% from three-point range against the Pistons.
That type of shooting performance simply won't cut it against a Hawks team that just shot .430/.409/.769. Furthermore, the Cavaliers were outscored 53-37 in the second half of their last outing. Keeping that in mind, I like the Hawks' chances of pulling off an upset.
Keeping things simple, I'm taking the Hawks as +118 moneyline underdogs.
