Atlanta (2-0) at Brooklyn (0-2)

Conversely, the Hawks have gone 4-6 SU and 3-6-1 ATS in their last 10 road games.

Sure, the Boston Celtics over clearly overmatched in their first round series against LeBron James and company, but bless their little hearts, the undermanned Celtics have gone 6-4 SU and ATS in their last 10 home games. Making matters even better for Celtics lifers is the fact that the C’s have compiled an impressive 7-3 SU and ATS mark in their last 10 home against the Cavs. James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love have led Cleveland to a respectable, but not overly impressive 6-4 SU and 5-5 ATS mark in their last road games.

Chicago (2-0) at Milwaukee (0-2)

There’s no other way to say it, but the young Milwaukee Bucks are in trouble against Derrick Rose and the more experienced Chicago Bulls! The Bucks are just 4-6 SU and 4-5-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and just 1-4 SU and 2-3 ATS in their last five home games including 1/1 SU and ATS against the Bulls this season. The good news for Milwaukee is that the Bulls are just 4-6 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 road games.

Toronto (0-2) Washington (2-0)

Not only does Washington have a commanding 2-0 series lead over the stunned Toronto Raptors, but the Wizards are also 8-2 SU in their last 10 home games. Unfortunately, John Wall and company are also just 4-5-1 ATS over that span. Toronto is 5-5 SU and 4-6 ATS in its last 10 road games and should have chance to pull off the upset.
