The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks meet Monday in the NBA action at the State Farm Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Celtics vs Hawks prediction.

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics have been on fire as they've won 20 of their last 22 games overall and they will be gunning for a 10th straight victory after routing the Bulls in a 124-113 road win on Saturday. Jayson Tatum led the team with 26 points and six assists, Sam Hauser and Al Horford each scored 23 points while Derrick White chipped in with 17 points and six assists. As a team, the Celtics shot 51 percent from the field and 21 of 48 from the 3-point line, but despite their excellent shooting, the Celtics couldn't get any separation until the fourth quarter where they held the Bulls to just 21 points to pull away and win comfortably in the end.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in rough shape as they've lost five of their last seven games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after snapping a two-game skid with a 132-91 win over the Hornets on Saturday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 28 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists and four steals, Bruno Fernando added 25 points on 11 of 14 shooting off the bench while Garrison Matthews chipped in with 20 points on six of eight shooting. As a team, the Hawks shot 55 percent from the field and 20 of 42 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Hornets early and took an 18-point lead into halftime and they just kept their foot on the gas, pouring in 66 points in the second half to make it a complete blowout win at home.

Atlanta Hawks Player Facts

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic is one of only two players to have scored 40+ points off the bench in a game this season.
  • Dejounte Murray ranks 3rd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.4) this season.

  • Derrick White is one of only five qualified players in the league averaging at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks this season.
  • Jayson Tatum ranks 3rd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for points per game (27.1) this season.

  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for offensive rebounds per game this season (12.8).
  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for field goal attempts per game this season (92.8).
  • The Celtics rank 1st in the league for point differential per game this season (+11.7).
  • The Celtics rank 1st in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (3.7).

Celtics vs Hawks prediction

The Celtics are still shorthanded with Jrue Holiday ruled out and Derrick White listed as questionable, while the Hawks are still missing Trae Young, Jalen Johnson and AJ Griffin. The Celtics are still the hottest team in the league despite being hit by injuries to key players and they are once again heavy favorites despite being the road team. The Hawks are coming into this one fresh off a massive win over the Hornets, but they were really struggling before that win and I think they're going to struggle in this one. Give me the Celtics to stay hot with another big win and cover on the road against this slumping Hawks outfit.
