The betting odds for this matchup remain under wraps, but given the Celtics’ impressive record and the Hawks’ struggles, it’s expected that Boston will enter as the favorite. Bettors should keep a close eye on the spread once released, as it could offer insights into potential value bets, especially considering the recent trends of both teams.

Jayson Tatum (SF) vs. Dejounte Murray (SG)

Jayson Tatum has demonstrated his potential for the best all-around player in the team with outstanding stats in addition to his impact that extends beyond the basics of the game. For opponents, it is like having an incurable nightmare in Tatum who can score, hit boards, and pass the ball at the same time. But more alarmingly 2.6 turnovers per game create his weakness in the face of pressure which the Hawks can take advantage of.

On the opposite side, however, it’s Dejounte Murray who is the embodiment of hope for the Hawks. His genial scoring and playmaking, which can also be added to a decent defensive performance (with an average of 1.4 steals per game) make him an important piece of the Hawks’ overall operation. Although, the amount of support from the teammates for Tatum might change the head-to-head game.

During these crucial moments for both team leaders, it is not simply about getting the numbers up but getting their teams to overtake the lead and shine on the centre stage. Each player has particular and clear-cut qualities and may be able to control the tempo and outcome of the game if they are really doing well.

Celtics’ High-Octane Offense

The Celtics hold the top spot in terms of offensive performance as they net an average of 121.2 points per game on 48.6 percent accuracy from the field. Their double-pronged attack, which justifies the prominence of the ‘inside’ and the ‘outside’ zones, is headed by Tatum. They are most likely to be feared by their offensive machine with a strong rebounding and defensive game too, that makes it difficult to win.

Hawks’ Resilience and Growth

However, Hawks have demonstrated streaks of brilliance but their record did not reflect this as much as it should with Murray heading the squad. Boasting 119.2 points per game and having their shots converted at an average of 46.4%, the Hawks certainly have the offensive power capable of matching and overcoming Boston’s offensive might. They will have the task to get back in the game more solid at the back and get every opportunity from Boston’s aggressive style of play.

Boston Celtics vs. Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks

Sporting their current shape, the stats indicating their dominance and the way they are coming into this game, the Celtics appear to be the most obvious favorites. But in contrast, the Hawks prove their worth in underrating which they can ruin even on throwing matches away and home is their home. The central factor will be how well the top players of the Hawks play against the Celtics, who are quite good at scoring.

The NBA betting prediction appears to favor the Celtics, given their depth and recent great form. Moreover, the spread bets on Tatum’s points and rebounds could also be a good investment, given the player’s season averages. Regarding the option of over/under, it seems fair to suggest that bettors go for the over since both teams are used to scoring high goals. Sign up today to make your NBA betting prediction!
