The 76ers should be favored, as they're the better team and home teams usually dominate in game sevens. However, the Hawks have shown to have offensive success in this series and right when it looks like a team has taken control, the other team responds. There's been little consistency in this series. I expect a back and forth contest. I'll take my chances with the Hawks and the free points.
Randy’s Pick Atlanta Hawks +7
