Boston enters with a 14-2 overall record and is 13-2-1 ATS after a 92-88 home win over the Warriors, its 14th consecutive victory. Atlanta is 3-12 overall and 7-7-1 ATS following a 126-80 blowout win at home versus the Kings. The Celtics won the first meeting on Nov. 6 by a count of 110-107 in Atlanta. The Hawks have gone 2-2 straight up and 3-1 ATS in four meetings since the start of last season. The over-under has gone 2-1-1.

Bet on Celtics vs. Hawks

The Celtics struggled to pull away from Atlanta their last trip here and after an emotional win over Golden State, this game is ripe for a letdown. Boston has had a few other down performances during the streak, at least on the offensive end, but has managed to will its way to victory. That might be the case again here, but we like an Atlanta team here that is coming off its best performance of the season.
