The Atlanta Hawks opened at +7 vs. the 76ers.  We detected the slightest of underlays here. The Hawks are 5-2 Against The Spread vs. 76ers using the current 7-point spread.


Knicks +6.5 Celtics (Celtics 6.93) On The Money – The Knicks have gone 4-1 Against The Spread vs. Celtics using current number.  The Celtics were coming off a bad loss vs. the Pacers in their last game.  Prior to this week, favorites of 6 to 7.5 are 21-7 over last three weeks.  Also of note, many of the top G911 Sports Hub cappers were backing Boston this evening.

Among those was the Sports Hub Insider, having gone 8-0 in their last eight.

From Sports Hub Insider: "We are changing the handicapping industry by getting insider data that only our 85+ years of combined sports betting industry experience could get access to. Not only can we access this data, but also we have created a proven system that finds the best of the best for YOU!"

Cavs -2 Heat - We have the wrong team favored here but Miami doesn't have much left in the tank with Tyler Herro still out. 

From Winners and Whiners: "Cleveland will corral Miami's shooters on Friday, holding them under their season average from long range. Without Herro, the Heat will struggle to score from beyond the arc against the Cavs' perimeter defense and won't get easy buckets inside. Cleveland ranks fifth in opponent rim FG% and 10th in opponent three-point shooting percentage this season. It's also 7th in opponent effective FG%.

"With Mitchell leading the way, the Cavaliers are not short of scoring options. The Heat rank 30th in opponent rim FG%, 26th in opponent 3PT%, and 26th in opponent eFG%. Don't be surprised if at least three Cavs score 20-plus points tomorrow evening!"
