Boston Celtics vs. Atlanta Hawks 4/9/16 NBA Picks

The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks are jockeying for position in the Eastern Conference playoff race and will meet tonight at 7:00PM ET at Philips Arena.

Bet Tonight's Celtics vs. Hawks Game

The Celtics enter play with an 8-2 record over their last 10 games and are 5-5 against the spread during that span. The Hawks, meanwhile, have won seven of their last 10 and are also 5-5 against the number in their last 10 contests.

Boston played last night (a 124-109 victory over the Bucks) but the team has been excellent at the betting window playing on back-to-back nights. The Celtics are 40-16-1 against the spread in their last 57 games playing on zero rest and are also a perfect 4-0 against the number in their last four games versus Eastern Conference opponents.

On the other side, the Hawks have failed to cover in four of their last five games despite beating and covering against the Raptors 95-87 in their last contest. With how hot the Celtics are, 5.5 points feels like a lot to part with to take the Hawks tonight.
