The first thing order of business. Yesterday, I was right about the total points being under but wrong on the spread as it shifted from -1 to -2.5 point favorite for Atlanta and to no avail they could not keep up.
I only like to break down play if I see it being important to the betting line or and over/under. Yesterday was true to what I expect in the West another close game as the Rockets were trying for the split. I don’t get why the spread hasn’t corrected for this yet 10.5 is too muxh if they are really hustling and Dwight played very well as did Harden. Back to the Eastern Conference Playoffs.
The spread tonight is Cavs @ Hawks -2.5 and 196.5 total points. Lebron is just to much for the Hawks to cover and he created a bunch of opportunities for his teammates that they took full advantage of. JR Smith, Mike Miller and James Jones will be good enough to keep them in it with outside shooting. The Hawks will have to get going from the outside with Korver and Carroll. The over under is an easy call as this game will be played in the 90’s by each team. Teague played well as did Horford but he can pick it to pit more pressure on Cavs to play from behind. Which may or may not help. I do expect the Hawks to win two games. My pick -2.5 and under 196.5
