Hawks vs Sixers Game 7 Odds and Trends
The Sixers opened as (-7) point favorites but that number has dropped and is closer to (-6) as we approach game time. The basketball betting public believes that this point spread is too big. Over 65% of the bets are on Atlanta to make this a game.
The public is betting on the Hawks because they have been a cash cow in the NBA playoffs. The Hawks are 9-4 against the spread (ATS) in the last 13 games overall and they are 8-0 ATS in the last eight games on Sunday, but they will be shorthanded.
In the last game, the Sixers and the Hawks were involved in a scrum and the NBA issued fines and suspensions prior to game seven.

This is not a huge blow to the Hawks team, but it is noteworthy when trying to pick a winner ATS in game seven.
Joel Embiid was fined $35K for escalating a situation in which John Collins kicked him while on the ground and then Trae Young shoved him into Collins, precipitating the situation further.
Neither Collins or Young were fined.

Hawks vs Sixers Game 7 Predictions
The Hawks are done. They have no energy and they do not have the experience to win this game. Trae Young and John Collins provide the Hawks with a bright future, but not this year. The betting line looks too big, so it is tempting to take Atlanta, but the Hawks are just 3-7 ATS in the last 10 road games.
Since 2008, No. 1 seeds are 7-0 (and 6-1 ATS) when playing a game 7 against a team that is a No. 3 or higher seed.

The Hawks have no answer for Joel Embiid. He only stops himself. To make matters worse for Atlanta, this is a statement game for Ben Simmons. The 76ers are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 games as chalk and they win in a blowout today.
