This game has been postponed due to COVID-19. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks meet Sunday in NBA action at the State Farm Arena. The Cleveland Cavaliers look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Atlanta Hawks need a win after losing five of their last seven games.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 106 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 102.2 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Darius Garland is averaging 19 points and 7.6 assists, while Jarrett Allen is averaging 17.3 points and 11.2 rebounds. Lauri Markkanen is the third double-digit scorer and Evan Mobley is grabbing 8.5 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game.
The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 111.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 110 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 27.3 points and 4 rebounds, while John Collins is averaging 17.2 points and 2.1 assists.

The Cavaliers are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 24-5 ATS in their last 29 games overall. The Hawks are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Cavaliers last 4 overall. The over is 5-2 in Hawks last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Cavaliers are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Cleveland Cavaliers may be on the end of a back to back, but they continue to get disrespected by oddsmakers and all they do is win and cover numbers. At some point, you just keep backing the Cavs until the tickets stop cashing. Also, it's not like the Hawks are lighting the world on fire. The Atlanta Hawks have lost five of their last seven games, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 1.8 points. The Cavs have been kind to bettors all season long. I'm not betting against them.
