Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks made a few upgrades on their roster as they are looking to build a better supporting cast to surround Trae Young. Collins and Hunter are still the best players for Young to give the ball to but they are adding Clint Capela to the mix to help them in the paint. Jeff Teague is questionable for this game and but he has provided this team with the veteran presence along with Vince Carter. Going to the Celtics game, Young will be battling with Kemba Walker and it will be a good sight to see how both players try to outdo each other inside the court.

Boston Celtics Betting

The Celtics have been on a roll and they hope to increase on that as they go to this game against the Wizards. Credit to Brad Stevens and his coaching staff, this Celtics team are dubbed to be the next โ€œSan Antonio Spursโ€ that resides in the NBA Eastern Conference. Jayson Tatum has been the teamโ€™s best option along with Kemba Walker. Both are participating in the NBA All-Star game and will be representing Boston. The tandem of Gordon Hayward and Stevens go way back when both of them are in the NCAA with the Butler Bulldogs. This should be a game that the Celtics are expected to dominate especially that they have a good system in place as compared to the Hawks who are still finding their way.
