Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks slump continues and they will be carrying a four-game losing streak heading to this game against the Boston Celtics. The team has won only once in their last eight games and this season for them is shaping up to be a very huge disappointment. Their most recent loss was against the New York Knicks and it was by a wide margin of 11 points. Trae Young finished with 23 points but he took 19 shots to get there and sank only six field goals. Clint Capela has been the most consistent contributor and has 15 points and 18 rebounds. This team needs to play defense and it is hard to see them losing with a deep roster.

Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics have been battling injuries and bad luck which led to their inconsistency. They managed to pick up a win during their last game against the Denver Nuggets and were able to avoid getting into a losing streak. Jaylen Brown has been showing that he can carry the team with his 27-point performance but he also had seven turnovers. Jayson Tatum followed him up with 21 points, eight assists and six boards while Kemba Walker did 17 points. Those three summed up the double-digit scorers for the team but in order for them to have a better season, the bench has to step up.
