Against the Spread Pick
Thes teams just met a couple of games ago with the Celtics taking care of business and winning by eight on the road. After the loss the Hawks bounced back at Minnesota, which apparently was the last straw for the Timberwolves as they then dealt Andrew Wiggins. Atlanta is a little banged up coming into this one but as long as Trae Young makes it onto the court they have a shot. John Collins has been playing very well since his suspension and should be able to work inside. Boston is on a good roll right now, 5 straight, all ATS wins too. Most impressive they have been doing it with slightly different players each evening. That will be the case again with key contributors like Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown on the injury report. On experience alone the C’s get it done here. Might be close for a half but they will pull away.
Over Under Pick
Atlanta is not afraid to let it fly and they are going to have to do just that to have a chance against the Celtics. I love the depth Boston has right now with players like Brad Wanamaker showing they can step in. Plus rookie Romeo Langford. Against a porous Atlanta defense, I am looking for a big game from Boston. Take the over.
