Here's everything you need to know about Celtics vs. Hawks on Monday, Mar. 25 — our expert prediction and betting picks for today's game.

Celtics vs. Hawks tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV. Boston is an 11.5-point favorite (-11.5) on the spread and the total is set at over/under 225.5 at BetMGM.


Boston Celtics

The momentum simply has not stopped for the Celtics this season. They enter this contest against the Atlanta Hawks on a nine-game winning streak and having only dropped two games since February 1.

The Celtics have stayed relatively healthy all season, resting their bigs in back to back sets and relying on the ironman mentality of wings Tatum and Brown.

In this game, Jrue Holiday is already deemed out, and Derrick white remains questionable with a hand injury. I believe White plays, as he has been playing through this questionable tag for the past couple of games.

The Celtics will look to roll another team and cover yet another double digit spread.

Atlanta Hawks

The Hawks are sadly one of the most disappointing teams this season and seem ready for the summer break. Without injuries, Atlanta might actually be a competitive team, led by star Trae Young, and upcoming young players Jalen Johnson and Onyeka Okongwu.

Instead, the Hawks will rely on Dejounte Murray and Clint Capela to take down the best team in the NBA, and will have Vit Kreji and Garrison Matthews playing meaningful minutes to flank Murray.

It is a really tough task for an Atlanta Hawks team that are losers of five of their last seven.

Betting Pick & Prediction

This line likely closes around -12.5 or -13 once the injury reports are confirmed and Derrick White is ruled active. With this spread still hovering around 11.5, I think it is worth a play now.

The total has dropped a few points from 226 to 224, but I expect it to stay in that range and close between these numbers.

The interesting trick to observe in the market for this game will be the closing numbers and the subsequent result because the Hawks and Celtics play again in Atlanta later this week.

Oftentimes, these quick two-game sets lead to a bit of an overreaction when the line opens for the second game. So, look for outliers from Monday's result to impact the line later this week.

Pick: Celtics -11.5 (-115)
