Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks managed to overtake the fourth-seeded New York Knicks and only allowed them to win only one game. This was the coming-out party for Trae Young who led the team over the Knicks averaging 29.2 points and 9.8 assists per game. His leadership pushed his teammates to do better as well. Young has Bogdan Bogdanovic and John Collins giving him the additional scoring punch while Clint Capela controls the paint very well by averaging a double-double in points and rebounds a night. Danilo Gallinari and Lou Williams have been great additions for this team coming off the bench.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers are expected to be where they are right now as the top-seeded team in the NBA Eastern Conference. The tricky part right now is how Joel Embiid will come in as his health will determine how far the Sixers can run this series. He is still doubtful for Game 1 and the team’s best player has been Tobias Harris doing 25 points and ten rebounds a night. Seth Curry and Ben Simmons have been a great help but the real strength of the Sixers is from their role players. Dwight Howard, Danny Green and Tyrese Maxey have been filling in the holes well for the Sixers.
Players to Watch: T. Harris PF 5 GP 5 GS 33.2 MIN 25 PTS 0.2 OR 9.8 DR 10 REB 3.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 1.4 TO 2.2 PF 2.7 AST/TO 19.99 PER
