Celtics vs. Hawks Odds
Game 6 became necessary when the Atlanta Hawks, headlined by Trae Young’s go-ahead 3, pulled off a big upset win over the Boston Celtics in Game 5. The Hawks were big double-digit underdogs, but found themselves battling all night with the Celtics in a game that saw numerous lead changes. The Hawks were able to win without their second-leading scorer as Dejounte Murray was out serving a one-game suspension.
If Game 5 is any indicator, don’t count out the Atlanta Hawks. They once again find themselves as considerable underdogs, this time at home, but should get a boost from Murray, who will be back in the starting lineup. Here’s a look at my same game parlay for Celtics vs. Hawks Game 6.
