Free NBA Expert Picks For Tonight (Nov 30): Cavaliers vs Hawks Prediction
It’s a decent sized NBA Thursday slate with the two TNT nationally televised games between theSixers vs Celtics and Bucks vs Blazers being the more significant draws plus three other games on the schedule. All odds from this article are from SportsBetting.ag online sportsbook.
Cleveland Cavaliers +7.5 at Atlanta Hawks -7.5 Total: 215
The Cavaliers travel south to take on the Hawks at Phillips Arena. Cleveland’s slow start is now a distant memory as they lead the NBA in active winning streak with nine-straight in route to a 14-7 record. The Hawks are at the bottom of the East standings at 4-16.
Early action has favored the Hawks, but we haven’t seen much spread movement so far. The Cavaliers will be without a guard, J.R. Smith, in this contest and the Hawks will miss center, Dewayne Dedmon, for 3-6 weeks.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks Prediction
The Hawks were able to get one of their four wins against the Cavaliers earlier in November. They beat them at the Quicken Loans arena 117-115 on Nov. 5. They have been 2-8 since their victory at Cleveland.
I like the Cavaliers in a revenge spot to demolish this Hawks team by double-digits. Their lack of frontcourt depth should give Cleveland a massive advantage on the boards in this spot. They’re also just the much better team. It’s worth taking this one early as the line may move as we get closer to tip.
