Sunday's best bets

Atlanta Hawks at Philadelphia 76ers (-7, 216.5)

Game 7: Hawks 103, 76ers 96 (Hawks win series 4-3)

Snellings: Game 7s are typically tough, defensive-minded affairs. The 76ers are the top seed, and they're playing at home. They've put together stretches of dominance in the series that show that a blowout is possible, even in a Game 7. With that said, the Hawks have shown remarkable resilience in taking the 76ers' best punches and bouncing back with runs of their own.
