The Atlanta Hawks have won three straight and are trying to make a play up the Eastern Conference standings. Atlanta could potentially get up to the No. 8 seed by the time the season is over, but wins against conference foes will be needed.

Cleveland, once a powerhouse, is limping towards the finish line. Darius Garland is trying to carry the team as best he can, but it's an inconsistent effort. Will he be able to get a win tonight?

Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

Cavaliers vs. Hawks Prediction and Pick

The Cleveland Cavaliers are sliding at the wrong time. Their net rating over the last 10 games is -3.5 (19th in the league) and have the 22nd ranked defense in that span as well. Offensively, they aren't much better. The Cavs are 20th in offensive rating, which just sets up for a losing battle with the Hawks.

Atlanta is 7-3 in its last 10 games and is starting to figure a few things out. Trae Young is also continuing to be a great offensive engine for them. He scored 40 against the Oklahoma City Thunder yesterday and will likely light up the Cavs as well.

The Hawks have won and covered in four of their last five games and have won all those games by at least six points. On the other hand, three of Cleveland's last four losses have come by more than six points. The Cavs have been losing big and I think tonight is an extension of that.

Lean: Hawks -5.5 (-110)
