boston celtics vs atlanta hawks ODDS COMPARISON & PREDICTION
MONEYLINE ODDS COMPARISON
In a battle of two top-4 Eastern Conference teams, which duo will come out on top? Tatum and Brown, or Young and Murray?
The Celtics are currently riding a 6-game winning streak, have won 7 of their last 8, and the duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown has never looked quite this good. Tatum is averaging 32.3 points per game, 3rd in the league, while Brown is averaging 25.3. Those are career highs for both players. While 2 of their last 4 games were against the Pistons, the other 2 were against Western Conference powerhouses the Nuggets and the Grizzlies
After the Hawks delivered the Bucks their first loss, they’ve gone 1-2 against the 76ers twice and the Jazz. Trae Young and Dejounte Murray might be the most electric backcourt in the league, and currently have the Hawks sitting at a top-4 spot in the East, but the Celtics sit two spots above them, and are playing like a team who just made the finals and are hungry for more.
Before they face off, the Celtics will play the Thunder at home on Monday night, and the Hawks will play at the Bucks, also on Monday night.
