Betting on the Atlanta Hawks (+11.5)

Regular Season Record: 41-41

The Hawks suffered yet another loss to Boston in the series, as they took a 129-121 defeat at home last Sunday. Trae Young led the Hawks with 35 points but was just 11/26 from the floor. More efficient was De’Andre Hunter, who posted 27 points on 11/17 from the floor. The Hawks could potentially miss the services of Dejounte Murray if he gets suspended by the NBA after he bumped an official after Game 4. Over their last 10 games, the Hawks have averaged 119.7 points, 46.7 rebounds, 25.9 assists, 8.9 steals, and 4.8 blocks per game while draining 47.7 percent of their attempts from the field. The Hawks are 4-6 against the spread in their last 10 road games. The Under is 3-0-1 in their last four games on a Tuesday.

Betting on the Boston Celtics (-11.5)

Regular Season Record: 57-25

The Celtics are clearly the better team in this series against Atlanta. Through four games, the Celtics have averaged 120.5 points on 51 percent shooting from the floor, while holding the Hawks to only 114 points on 45.1 percent shooting. The tandem of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown is having its way versus Atlanta, which allowed each player to score 31 points in Game 4. Over their last 10 games, the Celtics have averaged 118.3 points, 46.0 rebounds, 28.2 assists, 6.5 steals, and 5.4 blocks per game while making 49.0 percent of their shots from the field. The Celtics are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games on just one day of rest. The Over is 5-0 in Boston’s last five games on just one day of rest.

The Celtics win, 123-110.
