The Philadelphia 76ers meet the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6 after blowing two massive leads to lose Games 4 and 5. The Hawks have a chance to close out the 76ers on their home floor to advance to their first conference finals since 2014-15. The 76ers will look to bring the series back to Philadelphia for Game 7.

Sixers vs. Hawks, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Pick ATS: Hawks +3

The last two contests have been close and the Hawks are still not firing on all cylinders despite overcoming big deficits. Trae Young has been marvelous, but the supporting cast still needs to be consistent. That being said, the 76ers are lacking confidence after two defeats. Ben Simmons had a truly odd performance in Game 5 with only four shot attempts and 10 missed free throws. Take the home team to cover the spread.

Player Prop: Trae Young over 2.5 3-pointers (-120)

This has become a go-to prop bet and it has paid off six times in 10 playoff games. Young is shooting 8.8 threes per game since taking just three in Game 1 against the Knicks. He’s a good bet to make three of them.
