Point Spread Pick:

Ok let me get this straight. These two clubs have met 6 times since April 6th with the Hawks winning and covering 4 of the 6 games. They’re on a 10-5 straight up run and are at home facing a team who is 3-7 on the road in their last 10. Indiana did get the narrow 91-88 win in in Atlanta in Game 4, but I feel that the current play of both teams supports a Hawks win and since the spread is basically a pick’em at most betting shops the straight up win gets the cover.Take the Atlanta Hawks Pick’em.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
