After Beating Cleveland, Can Hawks Play Role of David Once Again vs Goliath Celtics?

The Atlanta Hawks mercifully ended their eight-game losing streak with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday but are now tasked with slowing down the red-hot Boston Celtics at home on Monday. Winners of eight in a row, the Celtics are riding their longest winning streak since 2010-11.

Xbet opened the Celtics as 8.5-point road favorites with a total of 204.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Celtics are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Hawks’ last eight games as home underdogs.
  • The Hawks are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Eastern Conference.

Boston’s defense has been fantastic this season, as opposing teams are averaging only 90.3 points during the aforementioned streak. Only three of them have been within single digits at the final horn. Jaylen Brown has been fantastic in the absence of the injured Gordon Hayward, as the 21-year-old led six players in double figures in their last win against Orlando with 18 points.

All five starters scored at least 14 points in the Hawks’ win over Cleveland as Atlanta continues to get solid production out of rookie forward John Collins. Collins notched 12 points, 13 boards and two blocked shots in only 24 minutes while finishing with a team-high rating of plus-15.

When the Celtics hit the road, UNDER bettors are profiting in a big way. In Boston’s last seven away from home, the UNDER is 7-0.
