NBA Basketball Betting – Struggling Cavaliers Host Surprising Hawks
Our Sportsbooks: Coming off the heels of the franchise’s first NBA Finals appearance ever, the 2007-08 season was supposed to be another showcase season for young superstar LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates, who overachieved mightily last season just to reach the Finals where they were exposed as the one-man team they were last season.
While the Cavs, (14-17 SU, 13-18 ATS, 16-15 O/U) came into this season with genuine hopes of a repeat Finals appearance, the Atlanta Hawks, (15-13 SU, 15-13 ATS, 8-20 O/U) were just hoping to show some on-court improvement after selecting two of the top players in this summer’s draft and adding them to the franchise’s already youth-laden athletic foundation of players that have been drafted the last few seasons.
Now, approximately 10 games away from the midway mark of the regular season, the Cavs are wondering where it all went wrong while the young Hawks are flying as high as ever in the past decade or so – and would appear to have one of the brightest futures of any franchise in the league.
Though the Hawks lost their last contest, 97-84 to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, Atlanta has won seven of their last ten games, including a five-game winning streak that Dallas ended, to stand at an impressive 15-13 after 28 games.
The Cavaliers have been totally inconsistent all season long, winning just five of their last 10 games and covering the spread in just three.
Cleveland’s stellar defense from a season ago, now allows 99.2 points per game to their opponents on 46.0 percent shooting, while Atlanta has been better in both areas, giving up 95.0 points per game on 45.1 percent shooting.
Here is a look at tonight’s Key Trends, followed by my NBA Betting Free Picks:
Key Hawks Trends
The Hawks are 6-0 ATS in their last six Wednesday games.
The Hawks are 4-0 ATS in their last four vs. Eastern Conference.
The Hawks are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall.
Key Cavaliers Trends
The Cavaliers are 25-12-1 ATS in their last 38 games following a S.U. loss.
The Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
The Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in their last five vs. Eastern Conference.
Key Totals Trends
The Under is 4-0 in Hawks last four road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
The Under is 7-0 in Hawks last seven games following a S.U. loss.
The Under is 8-1 in Cavaliers last nine games playing on three or more days rest.
The Under is 4-1 in Cavaliers last five home games.
Key Head-to-Head Trends
The Favorite is 17-5 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
The Hawks are 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Road team is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings.
Analysis: I know the Hawks have been a ‘tough out’ this season in almost every contest, but I like the Cavaliers to cover the spread at home tonight against a young Atlanta team that has struggled on the road (5-7) in this season of change for the franchise. If the Cavaliers can’t win this home contest against a team that is just about their equal now, it’s going to be a long, cold winter in Cleveland.
