The Hawks are 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite, 5-12 ATS in their last 17 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite. The Cavaliers are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 12-3 in Hawks last 15 overall.

The over is 21-7 in the last 28 meetings in Cleveland and 23-7 in the last 30 meetings.
The Atlanta Hawks have been absolutely horrible both SU and ATS on the road this season, but they're playing better basketball as of late, which includes losing their last five games by an average of just two points. The Cleveland Cavaliers are losing at home by an average of nine points and haven't won a home game in nearly two full months. Taking the Cavs at home almost seems like a waste of money. Give me the Hawks on the road in this pick em.
