Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks prediction

The Atlanta Hawks have rallied off a few wins this week, but they’re on the end of a back to back here and could be without Trae Young again. Also, the Hawks are still 11-30 ATS on the season, which is the worst covering team in the NBA. The Cavs are playing their best ball of the season with 6 straight wins, and you have to think that continues here with the rest advantage. The Cavs are 2-0 against the Hawks this season, and they had a field day offensively in both games. I’ll lay the bucket.
