ATLANTA HAWKS TO WIN ML AT ODDS 3.05Final result: 101 - 79
Profit: 0.00 - 2 = -2
Atlanta Hawks (# 4) at Boston Celtics (# 5)
Boston leads the series 2-1.
I don't see the Celtics covering here. I even doubt that they will win this one. The Celtics took a lucky win in game 3 after OT (90-84). The only meeting at the Garden within the regular season saw Boston winning 88-86 also in overtime. And all of a sudden they should cover 6 points tonight? I don't think so.
Josh Smith is likely to return into the Hawks roster tonight. The Hawks have failed to profit of Rondo's suspension and Allen's injury in game 2 and have also lost game 3 in OT. They could be already 3-0 up, instead they're 1-2 down. That however, doesn't mean that they're over and done in this series. I believe that this series could go into a game 7.
The tradition between these two teams shows a clear trend. Every game these two have played over the past year has been close. In fact, dating back to April last year and over seven games including this play-off series, the biggest margin had been the +9 win of the Hawks in game 1 (83-74). Moreover, 2 of those matches have gone into OT and 4 of them have been decided by five or fewer points. That said, this 5.5 points is huge considering all the facts. Take the Hawks to cover and add them also to your side play list to take game 4 ML.
Small stakes 2/10 on Atlanta Hawks to win ML (incl.OT).
