The Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks meet in Game 7 with a trip to the Eastern conference finals on the line. The winner of this game and series will meet the Milwaukee Bucks in the next round.

Below is a look at a number of predictions ahead of DAY night’s game for the DraftKings Sportsbook NBA Playoffs pool.

Sixers vs. Hawks, Game 7 pool picks

Which team will cover the spread? Hawks +6.5 or Sixers -6.5

The last three games indicate Game 7 will also be a close affair. The 76ers have not been good with holding big leads, but the Hawks blew an early advantage in Game 6 as well. Take Atlanta in this one, even if they ultimately don’t prevail in the game.

How many total points will be scored? Over/under 216.5

The first three games all went over this total, but the next three have gone under. The 76ers seem to be playing better defense and should have the backing of the home crowd to keep the Hawks quiet. The under appears to be the safer play.

Which team will reach 30 points first?

The Hawks broke out in Game 6 to reach this milestone first, but the 76ers were the first to 30 in Games 4 and 5. Expect the home team to be more aggressive out of the gate and get to 30 first.

Which team will make more 3-pointers?

The 76ers have been efficient with Seth Curry leading the charge. The Sixers won this matchup in Game 6 and have been good at containing Atlanta’s shooters in this series after Game 1. Philadelphia is the pick here.

Joel Embiid points and rebounds? Over/under 44.5

This is a big game for Embiid, who has gutted out this series with a meniscus injury. He’s been solid when on the floor and should get over the line.

Tobias Harris points, rebounds and assists? Over/under 32.5

Harris has been a decent scorer in the series, averaging 18.7 points per game. The rebounding numbers are decent, but he’s not really asked to be a distributor and set up other players. The under is the better pick in this category.

Trae Young points, rebounds and assists? Over/under 44.5

Young is usually locked in for 20 points and 10 assists, but the lack of rebounds makes this a tough mark to reach. Even if Young goes off for 30+, the under is more likely to hit here.

Which team will win the 4th quarter?

The 76ers won the final period in Game 6 by one point, but the Hawks took Games 4 and 5 in this category. This is likely to be a close game, so take the home team to turn it up a notch and close out the game and the series strong.
