Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Tips
The next step for both teams towards the conference finals. The 1st round was successfully overcome because both of them very easily went 4-1 over their rivals Washington Wizards and NY Knicks. This is going to be a far more interesting series.
The big question is whether Embiid will be healthy to play in game number 1. The result of this match and the whole series may depend on that. Phila has more good players but Atlanta is also well covered in all positions. A good individual move can decide the game and I am going for the Hawks as the winners in the first match. Even though Embiid could make it to Atlanta, there are many weapons he could use to oppose the 76ers.
Except for the questionable Embiid, who has a knee injury, all the other players are ready to start the 2nd round. Phila convincingly beat Washington 129-112 in match number 5 of round 1. Curry scored 30 points, Harris 28, while Simmons scored a triple-double with 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists. Simmons will have to shoot free throws much better, and that is perhaps the factor that will be most significant for the 76ers in this series.

The Hawks have a very likeable team this season. Already all-star calibre Trae Young with a great shot for 3 points, Bogdanovic, Huerter, Gallinari, Hunter role players and great Collins and Capela under the hoop guarantee that this series will be very tight and uncertain. Atlanta may have beaten the defensive NY Knicks more easily than expected, and it is certain that they will enter this duel with great motivation, in which they do not have the advantage of the home field, but they have the quality to cope with the rival until the end.
