Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks 2/3/2020 Betting Odds
Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics are on a good run so far and they have won six of seven of their last games after a losing skid. Their last loss was registered against the New Orleans Pelicans back on January 26 and they are on a three-game winning streak since then. Jayson Tatum was out for a few games and returned to the team already. Heading to this game against the Hawks, they will be missing Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter. This hurts them but one good thing about the Celtics is that there is a next-man-up mentality and expect guys like Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart sharing the load from the Walker void.

Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks so far has been up and down recently but they have not been on a losing streak and that is an improvement. The team is just battling for consistency and in their last six games, they have split their win-loss record. Their last game was a loss against the Dallas Mavericks on the road by 23 points and missing Trae Young due to injury blows their chances for an upset at home. They will also miss a body that could match up against Luka Doncic and this compromises the team’s speed and playmaking ability. Jeff Teague should be the guy that will try to step up to fill in Young’s shoes but he can just not just do much.
