Many games tonight and many good bets and I will focus on one of them here.
Boston Celtics – Atlanta Hawks
I wouldn’t be shocked to see road win tonight, but I believe that Boston has about 65% – 70% chance to win and with such short line, as long as we believe in home win, we can take a chance on the line.
Hawks still without any big guy. Brand, Carroll and Scott are good players, but all too small for their positions. They are forced to play 4 – 5 positions and that’s too much for them.
Boston doesn’t have dominant Center, especially if Sullinger will miss tonight’s game as well, but Olynik, Bass, Humphries and even Anthony can do a decent job here.
Anthony gets very small minutes in Boston (if any), but I have zero doubt that he would have been a starter in Atlanta, given their injury plague.
Looking at back court, you really can’t say that at least Hawks have a superior back court. It’s tied or Boston has the upper hand there as well.
Rondo, Green, Bayless and Wallace are just as good as Mack, Teague, Lu Will and Korver if not better.
Bottom line is simple. Hawks are a mess, losing to everyone, but the Knicks.
Boston aren’t the Knicks, they are the Celtics.
Hawks won already in Boston this season, also as three point dog, but Millsap, that will miss tonight’s game, was the star of the game, scoring 34 points.
Tonight, he is out and I don’t like Hawks chances in this one.
