Against The Spread Pick
The Atlanta Hawks have been super inconsistent, which makes it hard to bet on this game. In the last game against a short-handed Mavericks team, they could only muster 100 points and that led to a 23 point defeat. Over the last five games they are giving up 128 points per game and type of defense makes me lean the Celtics who have won three games in a row, and covered the spread in each of those games. The Celtics are 7-3 against the spread in their last ten road games. Back the Celtics to cash in this game as a lean.
Over Under Pick
The Celtics aren’t a team that necessarily wants to play fast, but they have no issues attacking a terrible defense. Over the last five games the Hawks are averaging 120.8 points per game while giving up 128. They like to play a faster pace and that is going to lead to plenty of scoring by both teams. The over is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings. Back the over to cash in this game.
