NBA Play-In Tournament Hawks vs Cavaliers Picks, Predictions, and Prop Bets

NBA Picks, Predictions, and Prop Bets for this Friday April 15th, 2022 NBA Play-In Tournament game between Hawks vs Cavaliers.

Hawks vs Cavaliers Odds: 

This Atlanta Hawks vs Cleveland Cavaliers game will tipoff  this Friday Night, April 15, 2022 at 7:30pm et at the Rocket Mortgage Arena in Cleveland, OH.

The NBA odds have the Hawks listed as a -1 point favorite against the spread at the -110 price and on the moneyline at the -120 price.  The total is sitting at 223.5 points.

The NBA betting public is loving Atlanta is this matchup and currently have 68% of their money behind them as the favorite.

Remember these two teams are very familiar with each other because they’ve played four times already this season. The Hawks won and covered the spread in three out of those four matchups.

In those 4 games Cleveland shot an average of 48% from the field and 30% from 3-point land. Atlanta shot 46.5% from the field and an impressive 39% from 3-point land.

In this four matchups the Cavs scored an average of 110.5 points while the Hawks scored an average of 118 points.

Cleveland comes into this game with the worst odds to win the Eastern Conference at +17000 and the NBA Championship at +50000. While Atlanta is +8000 to win the Eastern Conference and +15000 to win the NBA Championship.

Hawks vs Cavaliers Game Preview: 

The biggest questionable mark in this game will be if Jarret Allen will be on the court for the Cavs. When doing this video, Shams reported that Allen will attempt to play while other reports are saying he’s not quite ready yet. With the mix of reliable reports, you have to question that if he does play, how many minutes will it be and how effective of a performance can he give in this win or go home scenario.

Atlanta has two big man down low, so having Allen on the court will definitely be a positive for Cleveland to match up against them. Without him on the court this regular season, the Cavs went 9 and 17 overall, so keep that in mind.

For the Hawks, they got the huge win 132-103 against the Hornets on Wednesday Night. Trae Young lead the team with 24 points, but he was a miserable 1 of 7 from 3-point land. Our numbers have him stepping it up in that 3-point area, so I’m confident enough to take Trae Young to go over 2.5 Three-Pointers made and lay the juice at the -175 price.

The Hawks are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games and the total has gone under in 5 of Atlanta’s last 5 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference.

The Cavs 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games and the total has gone over in 14 of Cleveland’s last 20 games against Atlanta.
