Celtics favourites in Game 2

As expected, Boston is ahead in the odds for winning tonight’s game against the Atlanta Hawks

Home » Celtics favourites in Game 2

The NBA Playoffs don’t stop and tonight we have three games in the first round of the postseason. And in the first matchup of the night the Boston Celtics are extremely favourites in Game 2 versus the Atlanta Hawks, according to the bookies. And based on the difference between the teams and also on Game 1, this is totally expected.

In the first game of the series, the Boston Celtics didn’t have a brilliant game, but it was enough to beat the Hawks by 112-99 and start the series ahead. Now the Hawks want to tie the series before the next two games, in Atlanta, hoping they could take the advantage by winning on the road.

One of the best duos in the NBA all season long has been Celtics’ Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. In the first game, it was no different as they combined for 54 points and 23 rebounds. Will they repeat the dose and help Boston to open a 2-0 advantage? Or will Trae Young have a better night and help the Hawks to tie the series?

Injury Report

The Boston Celtics have only one problem for tonight’s game, and it is the same as in Game 1. Danilo Gallinari (knee) is out of the game. On the Atlanta Hawks’ side, there is no one out of the game.


As we mentioned before, the Boston Celtics are extremely favourites in Game 2 tonight. The spread for the matchup is set at 10 points in favour of the Celtics. Meanwhile, the over/under is a little bit high, at 230.5 points.

One interesting line for player props is Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum’s three-pointers. Brown has an average of 2.1 three-pointers made per game and converted two in the last game. The odds for him having over 2.5 are 2.30. And Tatum has an average of 3.2 3PM per game, and the odds for him having over 3.5 tonight are 2.10 (he had three in the last game). Check out all predictions for tonight, including one with high odds in the end.
